t - THI UTHBRIDOI HIRAID - Saturday, March 13, 1971 Priests conspiracy case brings divided reaction By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Demonstrations .. . resolutions ... drama . . . meetings letters to editors and bishops . . . These are among the reactions crackling in American religious circles over the United States government's conspiracy charges against six persons, including three Roman Catholic priests An ex-priest and a nun. "Modern prophets," say some. But others declaim them as tools for "terrorist activity." Much of the furore has centred on the brother priests, Rev. Phil and Rev. Daniel Berrigan, although the latter Is not among the six defendants, but is cited among seven CENTRAL CHURCH OF CHRIST 425 11th St. S. Mr. D. Maisey, Organist J. R.

"They are a strange mixture of exhibitionism and anti-Americanism," a priest-columnist, Rev. Daniel Lyons, who supports the Vietnam war, writes of the Berrigans. But a Presbyterian theologian and war critic, Rev. Robert McAfee Brown, voices confidence in their innocence and says: "If the Berrigans are 'guilty,' so are we." They themselves have called the charges a "fabrication by the government." SUPPORT ACCUSED Most of the reaction in church groups and publications has been sympathetic to the accused group, and skeptical of charges they planned to blow up heating systems in Washington, D.C., and kidnap presidential adviser H e n r y Kissinger. A group of 77 faculty members and seminarians at St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore linked the case to a "demoralizing effort to associate all dissent with anarchy," and 1202 3rd Avenue S. A.

He has been a teacher, school principal, full time mission preacher and pastor of a large parish In New Westminster. He Is well known for his work In the realms of marriage counselling and rehabilitation of alcoholics. All Are Welcome! said: "We are appalled at the government's on-going conspiracy to stifle all forms of dissent." The National Council of Churches, in a resolution, urged Americans to abide by traditional standards of Justice presuming the group innocent, unless proved otherwise. The Holy Cross Quarterly, alumni publication of a Jesuit college in Worcester, Mass., devoted its entire 80-page current issue to the Berrigans. "To some they are anathema; to others they are angelic," says the editor. Rev. William Vain Etten Casey. As for himself, he added in a lead editorial: "I am for them and with them. I believe that they are the living extensions of one of the roles that Christ took upon Himself... " PLAY OPENS. In New York, a play, The Trial of the Oatonsville 9, written by poet Dan Berrigan about the trial that sent him and his brother to prison for burning draft records, opened recently at a Manhattan Presbyterian church. In Baltimore, where Lawrence Cardinal Shehan was the first visitor to priests arrested in the case and Into whose custody they later were released, a group of "Catholics Concerned" demonstrated in protest. They distributed' flyers charging a "destructive trend" in the church linked to "terrorist activity" and called for withholding church contributions until priests "being used by leftist-inspired groups are removed from their positions." However, the two Baltimore priests accused were promptly assigned to parish duties. "We are eternally grateful," said Rev. Joseph Wenderoth. He called the charges "completely unthinkable." Other Roman Catholics, including 80 professors and seminarians in Rome, rallied to the cardinal's support. He said he helped the accused priests in line with Christ's words: "I was in prison and you visited me." In Harrisburg, Pa., where the defendants pleaded not guilty at a preliminary hearing, a group of 100 supporters stood in peaceful vigil outside. A special committee of Protestants and Catholics, set up in New York is raising defence funds. Funds for Indians miss objective? TORONTO (CP) - The United Church of Canada should re-examine the allocation of $400,000 to 70 Indian reserves this year, a church official said here. Rev. Harold Bailey, secretary of the church's board of home missions, told the board's annual meeting: "I am not at all sure that the traditional objective-which was to have a congregation, a church building and an ordained minister serving every reserve where the United Church has a responsibility-is the proper approach." To be sure the money is used effectively, hesuggesteda standing committee on Indian work be established with strong native representation. "I do not think we white people talking to each other are likely to make much progress in our relationships with Indian people." The board of home missions is facing a revenue shortage which may become critical in two years, Mr. Bailey told the meeting. He said he hopes a crisis can be averted by amalgamation of a number of boards, including the board of home missions, into the new mission in Canada division later this year or early in 1972. Bishop Ford hopes new mood of caution won't stall union LONDON, Ont. (CP) - The Anglican bishop of Saskatoon said in an interview here he hopes union talks with the United Church of Canada won't be affected by what appears to be a new mood of caution towards negotiation. Describing himself an ecu-maniac, Rt. Rev. D. A. Ford said there were dozens of small parishes in his diocese that would benefit from union. "There are little congregations of 10 and 12 families in small towns and in many ini-stances a United Church member may have to go to another town to attend church while the Anglican in that town has to travel to his area. "They pass each other on the highway and it's just ridiculous," he said. CHRISTIAN TABERNACLE SALVATION - HEALING - MIRACLES Patter: Rev. T. W.
