Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -Saturday, February 10, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE H�RALD - 17 Christian Ordination Thirty-nine new priests from around the world lie prostrated in St. Peter's Basilica this week during an ordination ceremony officiated by Pope Paul VI. Among the candidates were seven Vietnamese, four of them born in the North but now residents of the South. One new priest was from Communist Yugoslavia. General Amin seeks tight Uganda church control By MARTIN MEREDITH London Observer General Idi Amin is expected to seek much closer control over Uganda's Christian churches during the next year to ensure that they fall in line with government policy. He has already made it clear that he wants black Ugandans to take the place of the 1,400 foreign missionaries currently working in the country. He hopes to be able to reduce the powerful influence of the Christian clergy, and at the same time strengthen his own minority Muslim community on which he is counting for an increasing measure of support. Amin in particular dislikes the role of the foreign missionaries. Scattered across Uganda and speaking local languages, they provide a vigorous source of ideas different from those which underlie his own policies. In addition, Amin is worried about the security threat that he believes white missionaries living in remote areas pose. FIRST MOVE His first open move against the churches at the end of last year was directed at expatriate clergy. Ordering the expulsion of 58 missionaries, 55 of them members of the influential Catholic Church, Amin claimed: "Some mercenaries disguised as priests have been discovered to be actually military generals and majors." Among those who were expelled were a 92 - year - old French priest who went to Uganda 60 years ago and an 80-year-old Italian, a former Archbishop of Kampala. When the present Catholic Archbishop of Kampala, Emanuel Nsubuga, sought an audience with Amin toprotest against the expulsions and to deny mercenary accusations, the president refused to see him. The Archbishop nevertheless called uninvited at the president's home in Kampala; at the meeting, Amin accused him of being in contact with "Zionist and South African imperialism" and produced a letter supposedly written to one of Nsuguba's bishops by a prominent Ugandan exile living in Nairobi asking him to help sub- vert the Army and the Cabinet. Nsubuga denounced the letter as a fake. Amin ominously warned him to "be careful." It was the second time that Amin had clashed with the archbishop. On the. first occasion, in August, Nsubuga had publicly denied Amin's claim that he had expressed-support for the expulsion of Uganda's Asian community. After the 58 expatriate missionaries had been ordered to leave Uganda, the Pope wrote a letter to Amin urging him to allow the Catholic Church to continue with its work there. Church Chuckles by CARTWRIGHT "Miss Jensen, can you decode this letter from my son at college? It says> 'hang in there and keep doing your thing'1" When the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Luigi Bellotti, called on Amin to deliver the letter, Amin pointedly received him in his white Muslim robe and cap, although he had been wearing his customary military uniform for earlier appointments. OPPOSITION Such incidents illustrate the nature of the quarrel between Amin and the Catholic Church, the most powerful faith in Uganda, which has the support of about one third of Uganda's 10 million people. Of the 1,400 foreign missionaries, 1,240 are Catholic. Prominent Catholics, notably among the Baganda tribe, have provided articulate opposition to Amin's attempts to bolster the power of the Muslim community (numbering about half a million) in the army and government and to the more oppressive actions of his regime. Some, like Uganda's former Chief Justice, Benedicto Kiwan-nuka, have been eliminated in the process. Church hostility has only reinforced Amin's desire to con' trol their activities and get rid of their foreign advisers. "The imperialists may try to come back through religion to cause confusion in the country," he says. "It is for this reason that I want all religions in Uganda to be Ugandanized, so that all religious instruction and religious duties are carried out by Ugandans. This will remove the dangers of foreigners trying to sow the seeds of dissension and destruction in the country." It becomes only a question of time before Amin makes his next move. He may find, however, that the churches will prove to be tenacious foes. (Observer Copyright) comic sales boom TORONTO (CP) - If sales are any indication, religion-oriented comic books may be as well accepted by churches and Sunday schools as Bibles and hymn books. Two such comic books, The Cross and The Switchblade and Cod's Smugdler, recently appeared in Toronto's religious bookstores which reported booming sales. Both comic books are published in the United States. The Cross and The Switchblade is the true story of a young Pentecostal minister and his encounters with drug-crazed youths in New York's Harlem district. The other is the story of a priest who tries to smuggle Bibles into Communist Europe. "Canadian response to both comic books has been amazing." said Harold Welch, president of G. R. Welch Co., which distributes the comics in Canada. "Some of our outlets were very cautious at first, ordering only five or 10 of each. Others were excited right from the start. "In any case, they've all come back for more, and report that sales are booming." Mr. Welch said he's not embarrassed about handling com-| ic books alongside the more | traditional religious materials. "I wouldn't touch most comics, but these are of a different calibre altogether. In my opinion, this is a very modern approach to young people and I can see it developing into quite a major thing. "In my opinion, this Is the first serious attempts to use the comics as an effective means of Christian communication." Lethbridge Bible Book Store hasn't stocked the comic papers to date. However, paperback editions of the books on which they are based have been weli received. "I had customers take as many as 20 copies to use as Christmas gifts last year," said Edith Steen, bookstore manager. : "The thing is in a place like Lethbridge the books have pretty well gone the rounds by now. Most of the people who would be potentially interested in the stories have already seen them." Mrs. Steen said she stocks Bible story picture books. "I have a hard time selling them. Some people seem to think a comic cheapens the story." N0RBRIDGE COMMUNITY CHURCH The Evangelical Church In Canada 1402 8 Ave. N. PASTOR.- V.
