THE LETHBRIDGE HEKAID Saturday, Ortober 10, 1970 Presbyterians Oppose Gov't. Edict In S. Africa By DAVID POLING AMERICANS generally be lieve that it is most dlffi cult to be a Christian behinc the Iron Curtain. Or in China or perhaps Cuba. The flow o information from these restric tive societies indicates that for rnal religious practice is limitec and frequently suppressed. In too many instances Christians have been imprisoned and tor tured for their faithfulness. The underground church must carry the burden of teaching and ob servation of the sacraments. Compared to the above de- scription, South Africa remains a special problem. Here some 12 million blacks are governec by 3 million whites, many of whom are Dutch Protestants. A strictly enforced separatist policy is a major theme of the Constitution. Christians make up 90 per cent of the govern- ment and expect their official church bodies to give full sup- port to this device to keep the blacks down. For the past year, Prime Minister John Vorster has de- manded that the Christian churches of the Republic of South Africa withdraw from the World Council of Churches. He and his government have been angered by the stand of the World Council in its support of .Black Power and black libera- tion movements in Africa. Vorster, according to an arti- cle hi the New YorS Times, said that "action would be taken against those churches that did not withdraw." Political report- ers and church officials expect ed the religious community to cave in under this direct gov eminent threat, especially the Retired Primate Honored Guest TORONTO: Archbishop How- ard H. Clark, retired Primate of the Anglican Church of Can- ada, was honored Friday eve- ning at the Royal York Hotel at a testimonial dinner to mark the conclusion of his ten years as Primate. The reception and dinner were organized by a group of Toronto laymen to fit with the current meetings of the House of Bishops and the National Ixecutive Council of the Church. The National Execu- ive Council concluded its meet, ngs Friday, and the House of Bishops opened a week-end ses-. ion Saturday morning. Both lie National Executive Council and the1 House of Bishops draw membership from across Can- da. Archbishop Clark's retire- ment was effective August 31, 970. Archbishop William Wright of Algoma, Senior Metro, pou'taa of the Anglican Church of Canada is Acting Primate until the General Synod meets late in January 1971 at Nia- gara Fails, Ontario. At that time, a new Primate will be elected. Archbishop Clark was elected in 1959, when he was Arch- bishop of Rupertsland, and two years ago became the first lead- er of the Anglican Church of Canada to assume permanent quarters at the National Office of the General Synod at 600 Jarvis Street, Toronto.

School Service of Song WE INVITE YOU TO ATTEND Six Centuries After nearly six centuries, the Milanese put the final touch to the great Cathedral of Milan a bronze door to replace the last temporary wooden one. The edifice, the world's second largest Chris- conservative bodies. Of the fourteen Christian churches in South Africa that hold membership in the World Council, the Presbyterian Church was the first to res- pond. Its reply ought to be in quoted from your church pul- pit next Sunday and disscussed in your Bible School classes. Youngsters growing up in the household of faith should paste this in their New Testament. Long haired kids who have courage (and it IS rare) may want to frame the whole para- grath: "The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church re- minds the prime minister that its only lord and master is Jesus Christ and It may not serve other masters and that its (ask is not necessar- ily to support the government in power but to be faithful to the Gospel." This is the same Christian youp that voted to merge with two Black Presbyterian Church- es again in opposition to gov- ernment policy to form the Jnited Presbyterian Church of South Africa. Racial balance? The new church joins whites with blacks. Now Vorster must ponder what "sc- ion" he will take against Chris- ians who are more interested n the faith than the threats of white supremacists. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
