- THI IETHBRIDOI HERALD - Saturday, February 27, 1971 Survey reveals doubts on some RC doctrines By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) - An in-depth survey among Roman Catholics living on the east coast of the United States has found them strongly committed to their church, but doubtful about some doctrines, particularly the idea that the Pope in certain circumstances teaches infallibly. Two-thirdsofthe church members interviewed registered doubts about the doctrine. Nearly a third said they either strongly doubt it or definitely do not believe it. Only 29 per cent said they completely believe it. However, reflecting the tendency of Roman Catholic thought since the 1962-65 second Vatican council to focus on basic concepts instead of institutional processes, the survey found overwhelming dedication to the fundamentals. For example, 97 per cent believe that Jesus Christ is truly the Son of God and that He was resurrected from death. Only three per cent either strongly doubt these central tenets, disbelieve them or don't know. The study, conducted through Intensive interviews with 1,483 Roman Catholics in the eight counties of Trenton, N.J., diocese, also found that they generally support recent changes in the church, arising from the Vatican council. Particularly in congregational worship, in which modifications have been most externally obvious to members, 88 per cent said they favor the mass in English instead of Latin, approve the priest facing the congregation and like congregational singing of hymns and re- Archbishop reQpens controversy Grants to combat racism LONDON (Reuter) - The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Michael Ramsey, has reopened the controversy over a decision by the World Council of Churches to. give money to anti - racist liberation movements in southern Africa.

Treasurer Douglas Borgal told the executive of the division of finance that this represented a $43,500 increase over 1969. gland that the grants were made by the council as part of its program to combat racism. "First, it must be recognized that the grants were made for a long list of projects for the relief of suffering and, in the case of a few organizations which have a military intention, it was stipulated that they should not be used for military purposes but for specific humanitarian actions." Dr. Ramsey said that when he was in East Africa in December on his way back from South Africa, he was asked persistently why he did not surpport "our freedom fighters" -the "our," he said, referring to serveral African countries where the council's grants were taken as a kind of symbolic support for military action.

In that context, he added, the council's grants were encouraging a sort of emotional belligerence which did not face the serious questions which a just war or a just rebellion would involve. sponses. "Home masses"-once a controversial subject in the area-were endorsed by 68 per cent. Seventy-eight per cent also favor Roman Catholics and Protestants worshipping together at interdenominational services and 63 per cent back new regulations allowing Protestant or Jewish clergymen to participate in mixed marriages. The survey was commissioned by the diocese and was conducted by the Opinion Research Corporation of Princeton, N.J. BOOK DEPLORED ROME (AP-Italy's Roman Catholic bishops publicly deplored Saturday Hans Kung's book Questioning the traditional doctrine of papal infallibility. The doctrine commission of the Italian bishops conference threatened virtual excommuni cation to anyone "adhering to, sustaining and circulating" the beliefs of Kung, a Swiss priest who teaches in West Germany, The Vatican has made no of ficial proclamation on Kung's work, which was written for the 100th anniversary of the Vatican Council that declared popes to be infallible when they speak formally on matters of faith and doctrine. The infallibility formula had been used only once, by Pius XII in 1950 when he proclaimed the dogma of the Virgin Mary's bodily ascension into heaven. St. Andrew's Women as priests Anglican issue LONDON (AP - Women militants are battering at the doors of one of Britain's most sacrosanct male holdouts-the Church of England. A growing number of women want to become Anglican priests. "I'm aggressive about my femininity," says Deaconess Una Kroll, who complains of 'cruel discrimination" in her unsuccessful bid to be a priest. She has passed the same exams men pass to become priests and is qualified to be a minister in every way but one: "Only my sex is holding me back." But Deaconess Kroll and other militants feel the Church of England is now closer than ever to meeting their demands, due to an improving climate of opinion. Even the Archbishop of Canterbury, who has rejected the Anglicans to extend holy communion LONDON (Reuter) - The Anglican Church has decided to allow members' of other denominations to take holy communion in its churches. The general synod of the church accepted a proposal to admit baptized and communicant members of other churches who are in good standing in their own churches, and any baptized persons nearing death.

He'll be in the thick of a debate about this at a world Anglican conference at Limuru, Kenya. This consultative council links 47 million followers of the Anglican communion. It will hear a request from the Hong Kong diocese for advice on its decision last year to ordain women as priests. If the council looks favorably on the Hong Kong decision, Anglican churches around the world would be encouraged to pass national church laws to let women be clerics. In Canada, the Anglican Church of Canada has hotly debated the role of women in the church, but has maintained the English church line that time is not yet ripe for the change. The United Church of Canada-with which the Anglicans have been discussing merger for a number of years-already ordains women as ministers.
