Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE Svptcmbtr Alaska Episcopalians seek union with B.C. Anglicans KAMLOOPS, B.C. (CP) Delegates to the 23rd Anglican provincial synod meeting in nearby Sorrento decided Thursday that no new archbishop for British Columbia will be elected until a review of boundaries and relationships between dioceses is under way. The Ecclesiastical Province of B.C. has been without an archbishop since last December when Archbishop Ralph Dean to accept a position in the United iiates. The study, by ain independent outside con- will also review the role of the "-chbishop as leader of a college of bishops, relationship of the provincial synod with icesan synods, the role of the episcopate, .lergy placement and mobility, the -chbishop's job and administration. Bishop Somerville of the Diocese of New which encompasses B.C.'s wer mainland, suggested that all the iceses be abolished in favor of a college of rtiops. He also said the Anglican Church in B.C., as the rest of Canada, is concerned about the _rsurge in candidates for the priesthood while some parish churches are being closed. Archbishop Godfrey Gower, retired metropolitan, told the synod the province needs loose jurisdictions rather than dioceses. Alaskan Bishop David Cochran, supported by a ninemember delegation of clergy and lay people, presented plan whereby the Diocese of Alaska would be incorporated into the Ecclesiastical Province of B.C., and conse- quently into the Anglican Church of Canada. This would mean withdrawal from the Episcopal Church in the United States. Bishop Cochran said his diocese has much more in common with the province of B.C. and the Yukon than it has with the American Episcopal Church. The Canadian House of Bishops, along with Archbishop Ted Scott, the primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, have already given their support to discussions leading to full acceptance of Alaska as an autonomous diocese within the Anglican Church of Canada.

Religion declaration for review Gesture for the crowd Rev. Sun Myung Moon preaching in New York Korean prophet picketed Canada Manpower Centre Manpower and immigration nclras. Minister Centre de Main-d'ceuvre du Canada Mam-d'cewe et Immigration Robert Andras. Mimstre NEW YORK (AP) Self- proclaimed prophet Sun Myung Moon, revered as a messiah by his followers, condemned as an antichrist by his detractors and cited by the city as a litterer, drew a capacity crowd of to Madison Square Garden this week for a religious revival. The rally climaxed a 000 advertising blitz that left the city papered over with posters of the smiling South Korean and crowded its street corners with polite bat zealous Moonies seeking converts. The city issued summonses citing Monn's followers for littering, but up until minutes before the rally, they con- tinued to hand out leaflets that frequently ended up in gutters. Moon has said that the litter is a small price to pay for the honor to the city of containing the headquarters of God's kmdgom on earth. Moon. 55. preaches that God has personally directed him to come to North America to give Christianity a rebirth. His crusade benefits from the street hawking of flowers and candles and from his in- dustries here and in Korea. He claims two million followers, of them in the United States. Enraged by Moon's interpretation of Christianity and his stout anti-Communist stand, groups as diverse as the Mennonites and Youths Against War and Fascism sent hundreds of their members to picket peacefully, but vocally, outside the Garden. EDMONTON (CP) Dr. Max Wyman, chairman of the Alberta Human Rights Com- mission has announced a board inquiry will study the legality of the sections of the Alberta School Act which re- quire a declaration of religion. Dr. Wyman, in a news release, said legal opinion suggests that parts of the act, "particularly those that seem to involve religious dis- are inoperative under the individual's rights protection act. "Since the issues involved are so important for the peo- ple of Alberta, the commis- sion has decided to raise the issues at a board of inquiry." The School Act of Alberta requires a declaration of religion used for the purpose of assessing taxes, giving school boards jurisdiction over student placement, and granting the right to collect certain fees. Such a requirement may contravene the individual's rights protection act which applies to every law of Alber- ta, unless expressly granted exemption by an act of the legislature. "As far as we are aware, no provincial law has been granted exemption from the requirements of the in- dividual's rights protection Dr. Wyman said. However, "The commission is aware that school boards in the province have acted in good faith, and indeed, have been acting within the rights they believed to have been granted to them by the school he said.- "Under such circum- stances, the commission would like to raise these issues at an inquiry without naming a particular school board a he said. Dr. Wyman said it was "coincidental" that the com- mission received a complaint from Mr. and Mrs. Almand Schmidt against the Calgary public school board just as it was ending its study of the issues involved. He said there would be an attempt at mak- ing an ad hoc settlement of that particular complaint. The children of the Schmidts, a Roman Catholic couple, were to start school in Calgary Friday after the human rights commission rul- ed they were being dis- criminated against by not be- ing allowed to send the children to public school. Originally told they could only send their children to public school either by renouncing their religion or paying in fees, they have been told they can pay a monthly fee and receive a re- fund if the province alters the school act to allow children of any religion to attend any school.

Don- ald Manuel, pastor of the Al- lapattah Baptist Church, had promised "blessings and awards would come to a per- son" who gave 10 per cent of his wealth. But McNatt. an electrical worker, contended in the suit filed earlier this summer that he received neither blessings nor rewards in the three years that passed after his donation. Alton Newell of San Antonio decided to repay the for the church. "I sympathize with anyone who gives money to the church and sits back and ex- pects God to immediately hand it back to him, with in- terest, by some specific Newell said in a letter to Mr. Manuel and McNatt's lawyer.
