Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, June 15, 1974 Jews launch temple fund NEW YORK (AP) A tund-raising drive has been launched for million to build a "Jerusalem Great synagogue" in Israel's capital. The new house of worship will be the "first large, representative synagogue to be built in the Holy City since the destruction of the historic temple in 70 AD. said Rabbi Dr. Maurice Jaffee. However. Dr. Jaffee of Jerusalem, president of the Union of Israel Synagogues, sponsor of the project, emphasized that it does not mean the long-dreamed restoration of the ancient temple. "Under present conditions, that is completely out of the question." he told an interviewer.

Nevertheless, he said the great synagogue would tor the first time in two millenia provide Jerusalem with a large, central house of worship to which Jews from all over the world would come to pray as they did in the ancient temple. The temple was destroyed by fire when Roman troops sacked the city in 70 AD in putting down an uprising seeking Jewish independence. The earlier temple of Solomon was destroyed in 586 BC by- conquering Babylonians, but was later rebuilt. Some biblical literalists among Christians have watched for its modern restoration as a prelude to the return of Christ. Some Jews also think a restoration of the temple with the coming of the Messiah More than S2 million of the funds for a new temple already have been pledged, a spokesman said.

Young said, and these will symbolize "the cold-blooded murder that has taken place in this metropolitan community." as well as "death surrounded by the drug scene." Young ministers are being urged to preach on the theme. "Thou shall not kill." NEW YORK (AP) A pudgy Korean evangelist named Sun Myung Moon has become the hottest new item on the religious cult scene. In three years, the 54-year- old Moon and his Unification Church have drawn 10.000 American followers, amassed millions of dollars and even won the favor of President Nixon Moomsm. more than any other recent American reli- gious movement, has allied it- self with the government, and the mainstream of Christian- ity in the United States has been critical of what it con- siders an unholy alliance. "Moon is a misguided reli- gious populist." said Jorge Lara-Braud. a theologian with the National Council of Churches "He is preying on the fears and disillusions of disaffected Americans." Signs proclaiming "God loves Nixon" popped up in front of the White House late last year as Moon rallied his faithful in support of Nixon in the face of the Watergate scandals. In newspaper ads. he exhorted Americans to for- give and forget. PRAYED WITH NIXON In February. Moon got the president's personal thanks at a White House meeting. Moon embraced the president, prayed in Korean and urged him not to give in. The Unification Church's re- ligious-political creed com- bines off-beat Christianity with staunch anti- communism. Some followers believe the evangelist is the Messiah. He leaves the possibility open. Moon preaches that he first conversed with Christ as a 16- year-old in Korea and was told the Messiah was to be born in his homeland in our time. "I was instructed by God to go to second Is- lay a foundation for the Second Coming." said Moon. Moon says his advocacy of Nixon is "another directive from God. Moon's church separates it- self from other cults by lay- ing aside abstract and other- wordly retreats in favor of a practical view of trying to embrace the world and change it All this revolves around the Moon dogma that heaven will be established on earth. TOURS ACROSS U.S. The evangelist is in the midst of a Maine-to-Hawaii crusade. Christianity in Crisis is the topic and college youths are the main target. In Princeton. N.J.. recently he delivered a lengthy lecture in Korean, translated by Lt.- Col. Bo Hi Pak, a Korean army veteran. Moon's disciple and his chief travelling com- panion. The message began with a smile, in a sing-song style, but rapidly rose in intensity as the preacher stamped on the stage and flailed the air with karate-type chops. Sweat streamed down his face. The church's political arm is the Freedom Leadership Foundation, dedicated to quashing communism in the United States. The foundation conducts training institutes, provides conservative speak- ers and runs a bookstore. The church claims a follow- ing of 500.000 in 40 countries. Once penniless and impris- oned by the North Koreans, Moon is the chairman of the board of five Korean com- panies turning out products from tea to guns. Neil Salonen, 27. who heads the U.S. church and the foun- dation, estimates that Ameri- can contributions run about million annually. The sect runs with corpo- rate precision, from the church-operated cottage in- dustries to the hard-core Moonies who stalk the streets proselytizing and hawking candles, peanuts and flowers. Converts from all over the world come to Belvedere for a 100-day course in theory and fund-raising. Most church members were attracted to the Moon creed by this worldwide prose- lytizing. LIVE COMMUNALLY Moon adherents abstain from tobacco, alcohol, drugs and premarital sex. The hard-core adherents in the United States live commu- nally. Fewer than 20 American couples have been given per- mission to marry but an asso- ciate said Moon is considering a mass marriage, similar to one he conducted for several hundred couples in Korea in the 1960s. Religious studies chairman appointed Earle H. Waugh has been appointed chairman of the department of religious studies, faculty of arts, at the University of Alberta. His appointment was announced at a meeting of the University of Alberta board of governors. It is for a three- vear term commencing July 1. 1974.

Anglican women approved TORONTO (CP) The synod of the Anglican diocese of To- ronto voted 248 to 211 Tuesday night in favor of admitting women to the Anglican priesthood. Rt Rev L S Garnsworthy, bishop of Toronto, told the sy- nod composed of both clergy and laymen, that the closeness of the vote means "we still have a lot of hesitation over this issue no individual bishop in Canada will ordain a woman until we come to a common mind." The matter will be voted on by all Anglican dioceses across Canada before the spring of 1975. The church's general synod will meet in Quebec City that summer for a final decision.
