10 1HS LETHBRID13E HERAIO Soturdoy, September 23, 1971 Deviations from ideology ing rebuke from Pravda By HEDRICK SMITH New York Times Service MOSCOW Pravda has sharply attacked communist party members for taking part in religious ceremonies in wide- ly dispersed parts ot the Soviet Union. By asserting in a leading froiit-page editorial last Friday that such deviations from ideo- logy1 would not be countenanced, the communist party daily seemed to be serving notice that some members faced be- ing purged during the exchange of cards that is now under way. The prominence given fo the attack on religious practices, especially religious links with nationalist feelings In minority areas, was seen as evidence of the hidden strength of religious feeling and the frustration o party leaders in combatting it Pravda asserted specifically that anti-religious work ant cadres needed to be expandet and improved. "In modern conditions, It i very Important to reveal th interconnections between rel gion and nationalist superst the commentary said "It is known that in a numbe laim to play the role of the reservers of national values. Ve sometimes encounter at- cmpts to represent religious eeling as a feature of national crsonality ami the non-obser- of religious holidays as departure from 'the will of tie forefathers." The editorial did not specify iroblem regions but Catholic where there have itionalisls this year, has been particularly difficult area. In addition, regional leaders and newspapers have periodi eslly complained of such prob- ems in Moslem areas like Az erbaijan, Turkenia, or Uzbek istau, or Christian areas like the Caucasian republics o Armenia and Georgia. Travellers' to Armenia en counter numbers of party mem hers who acknowledge going t the rejuvenated Armenia church on major holidays, fo weddings or baptisms, or I hear religious and national mu- sic. Last fall In Azerbaijan, the local press printed the remarks of the head of the Komsomol, or Young Communist League, complaining that Komsomal members were among the art in religious celebrations and observe rituals." More recently, other party iiblicalions have complained ibout the weakness of "atheis- cducation" and the lack of good books to counter what has icen called the flexibility of modern churchmen and their moral Influence among young >eople. Pravda's editorial gave some ndicatiou of the dimensions of the problem by that n Byelorussia, with a popula- :ion of nine million, authorities had opened "schools of basic knowledge of nature and society, intended for believers" to give them more exposure to party indoctrination and modern science. The editorial was also the ;irst occasion in recent months' when a major newspaper ac- cused communist party mem- bers of adopting religious prac- tices. The widely separated ureas where it was said lo be going on seemed to indicate the practice was geograpliically widespread. "It is impossible to be recon- ciled to the fact that some party and Komsomol members them- selves observe religious cere- monies as happened in some districts of the Kemerovo re- gion (In central In Orel region (central Russia, south of and in the Nikolayev region (in the Pravda declared. "Each communist must become a militant atheist." EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH 12th Ave. and Mayor Magralh fhone 327-6113 Paslori REV. H. J.

Dr. Potter says .support for it has become broader, despite criticism. The main thrust of this pro- gram is to help black move- ments against the Portuguese in Angola and and white regimes in southern Af- rica. Critics claim that some o the African groups receiving help from the council are Com- munist-oriented. Commenting on this, Dr. Pot- ter said: "The fascinating thing Is that most of these groups come out of a Christian background. Some of then- leaders are pas- tors and things like that. And it isn't surprising thfit Christians would be the ones most con- scious of their responsibility lol struggle for the liberation and1 human dignity of their peoples. "A second thing, it is quite likeiy that some of these move- ments are receiving arms from Communist governments be- cause nobody else gives them to PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH 1818 5th Avenuo South MINISTER-7HE REVEREND 1.
