You may find just what you're looking for Poverty appalls minister TORONTO (CP) - Canada's major problem in the 1070s is affluence, says Dr. Robert B. McCrore. Canadians haven't learned bow to handle it. The retiring moderator of the United Church of Canada has been saying that ever since he came home, almost a stranger in his own land, in 1968 after 45 years abroad as a medical missionary. He was appalled then at what he saw-grinding poverty and social unrest side by side with an affluent society spending too much on what he considers inconsequentials, cplit-up families, "momma and poppa doing too much for their kids," restless youth aimlessly seeking something without knowing what they seek. He is still appalled. In an interview as he steps down after almost 2% years in the highest office of the United Church, Dr. McClure said Canadians would be better off with at least a touch of austerity. RETIRES JAN. 26 "I don't extoll poverty," he said. "Poverty brings misery. I say we simply haven't adapted to affluence. Any moderately great degree of affluence almost seems to preclude happiness. "I soy let's study the problems that affluence brings, the same as we study the problems that poverty brings." Dr. McClure served as a medical missionary in church missions in China for 25 years, for 14 years in India and for four years in the Middle East, service broken only by infrequent furloughs home. Back to what he thought was honorable retirement, be was elected moderator, first lay-roan in the position. His term ends Jan. 26 and now, at 70, he really is retiring. He is going to Southeast Asia with Mrs. McClure to resume his medical practice, this time concentrating his skills on those afflicted with the dread disease of leprosy. For one supposed to hold unconventional views about religion and the place of the church in the world of today -in the last 2% years be star-tied many a churchman with oft-expressed opinions on matters a moderator might be expected to shy away from- Robert McClure sounds 1M any other churchman when he talks about the future of the church. If the church ever was on the downgrade, as some skeptics say, it's making a comeback. tiOD ESSENTIAL Interviewed after he announced that he had declined suggestions to seek a second term-"that would be arrogance"-Dr. McClure, with his customary machine-gun-fire delivery, spoke freely on some of his experiences during his period as moderator. About the church: "There is a place for the church and people realize it. What I might call one of the good byproducts of the trouble in Quebec is that people now realize mat morals have a place. "We have to have cement to bold anything together and organized religion is the cement to hold people together. "No culture has been able to survive without the corporate worship of God." Back on the affluent society: "Kids don't do anything for themselves anymore. Poppa and momma do it for them. "Mothers are out working when there's no need for them to do so. And when the wife's cheque is larger than hubby's, boy!-that really means problems. "Look at all the split-up families these days. . . . "That's what affluence has done to Canada." CRITICAL OF GIVINGS Canadians aren't doing enough, either at home or abroad, to help the world's needy and here his own church did not escape unscathed. "As far as the church goes we are giving our small change to foreign aid." Dr. McClure has called Christianity "the cheapest religion on earth" and has been critical of church members who put "their spare change" on Sunday collection plates. He wants to do away with collection plates and "hit" members substantially as do private clubs. Most interesting to him as moderator were the opportunities to meet high school students and prisoners in penitentiaries and jails. He has visited almost every penitentiary and many jails during the last 29 months.
