Termites In The Church

By Kastuś Akula

 
Unless you are a Roman Catholic, next time you walk by the church of your choice, don’t pass by.  Drop in; talk to the minister or priest, and find out to what international bodies the church belongs and for what purposes it makes financial contributions; listen attentively to the clergyman’s Sunday sermon; attend the Sunday school some day and see just what is being taught to your children.  Above all, find out the attitude of your church’s hierarchy to the World Council of Churches.  May we assure you, the time thus spent will be well invested.

On November 20, 1961, at the Third General Assembly of the World Council of Churches in New Delhi, India, the Russian, Rumanian, Bulgarian, and Polish Orthodox Churches were admitted as full members of the W.C.C.  The ballot was secret.  The newly admitted members claimed to represent 70 million members.  This gave them an influential voice on the W.C.C. Executive and on its committees.  Until then, the W.C.C. had lumped capitalism and communism together as equally anti-Christian.  The situation changed when the Russians and their satellites, supported by the huge resources and [illegible] of their totalitarian state masters, started dictating W.C.C. policies.

At the Council’s last General Assembly in Uppsala, Sweden, in 1968, Rev. Knut Norberg, president of the consistory of the Lutheran Church of Sweden, said indignantly:  “Problems related to race, violence, and oppression were discussed freely and passionately.  But, as soon as the prevailing conditions behind the Iron Curtain became the order of the day, stony silence reigned.

Asked Norbert:  “How can an ecclesiastical universal assembly refuse to take notice of the ever-growing appeals from deportation camps, prison cells, and torture chambers where fellow-Christians are suffering and even dying?  Is it a matter of tactics?  If so, it means total capitulation to the Soviet Union and its Marxist-Leninist religion.”  (READER’S DIGEST, Dec. 1971 [WHICH WAY THE WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES? by Clarence Hall]

During the Cuban missile crisis, the W.C.C. expressed “grave concern and regret” over the “unilateral military action taken by the United States/”  Presumably, the Soviet missile build-up was a “Christian” act.  During the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, the W.C.C. kept its mouth shut.  Only after the Soviet aims had been achieved, did Dr. Eugene Carson Blake, the General Secretary of the W.C.C., issue a hardly audible objection.

Those ecumenical enthusiasts, unless they be professed disciples of Moscow, should restrain themselves before leaping into the so-called Marxist-Christian diaglgues, which have, apparently, greatly influenced the dumb and naive among Christians and which have been hailed by the communists as “a development of vast importance.”  In other words, a one-way street to the Moscow Mecca!

In the November 1971 issue of READER’S DIGEST, Clarence Hall looks at the way that W.C.C. members have tried to “study, witness, serve, and advance the common unity.”  “Must our churches finance revolution?” asks the author.  Apparently, that’s what the W.C.C. has been doing since the agents of the communist anti-Christ gained positions of command and influence.  In September 1970, the so-called “Programme to Combat Racism” was launched.  of the 19 “liberation” movements to whom W.C.C. has donated $200,000 for operations chiefly against South Africa.  All were known to be engaged in guerilla activities, many of them outright terrorists.  Four of the groups were avowed communists, and three of them were known to be receiving arms from Moscow.  This is Christianity Moscow-style!

Last year, the W.C.C. launched a campaign to raise $210,000 to support American draft-dodgers and deserters in Canada and Sweden.  The Council’s youth division circulated the magazine RISK, the articles in which spotlighted evasion of one’s military duty, i.e., treason.

Of course, the black racists get W.C.C. support.  Remember James Forman?  He’s the one, who on a Sunday morning in May, 1969, forced his way to the pulpit of New York’s Roverside Church to demand a half-million dollars from churches and synagogues as “reparations” to black people.  He later raised his demand to $3 billion.  “We are dedicated to building a socialist society inside the United States, where the total means of production and distribution are in the hands of the state — led by black people,” said Forman in the introduction to his printed MANIFESTO (reported in READER’S DIGEST, C. Hall, Nov. 1971)  At a special convention four months later, the Episcopal Church voted $200,000 to Forman’s movement!

Christians the world over are asking questions about the revolutionaries within the church.  The most irate group are the churches of West Germany, who provide about one quarter of the W.C.C. budget.

But, perhaps the church of your choice does not support the revolutionary activities of the W.C.C.; perhaps, it has not yet become the tool of those who have murdered millions and who continue to murder and persecute Christians.  But, perhaps, your church is busy with Sunday school activities.  Is there any reason that you should look into the Sunday school programme?  There is!

The December 27, 1971 issue of NEWSWEEK describes “Sex At Sunday School.”  It seems that the way-out liberal Unitarian Universalist Association schools are “drawing kids like flies to honey.”  No wonder.  The 12-14 year-old children are being told it like it is and are shown it in vivid detail on the screen.”  Introduced last fall in nearly half of the association’s Sunday schools, the programme entitled “About Your Sexuality”, includes explicit film strips that depict adults engaged in sexual intercourse, masturbation, and homosexual acts.:  (NEWSWEEK, December 27, 1971)  “Traditional religious norms, in fact, are all but ignored, and Biblical precepts concerning sex tend to be dismissed as moralistic hangups.”  “Unitarian officials hope that their sex-education programmes will eventually spread into the public schools.  Meanwhile, six other denominations including the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians, are studying the curriculum to see whether it can be adapted to their own Sunday school children.

Can you figure out what’s going on?n  Only the termites know for sure!

Historical Moment

I know Henry will like my new hairdo

I know Henry will like my new hairdo

You can be as sure as you are walking on this planet that President Nixon’s trip will be the “media” people’s favourite dish for months and perhaps years to come.

How would you describe it if you were a perceptive junior high student, and were assigned the trip as a current history project?

Let’s try.

For a long time the Red Chinese did not like American President Richard Nixon and quite often called him “a running dog”.  Then, one time Nixon announced he wanted to go to Peking in peace and so the reds stopped calling him “running dog”.  In February Nixon took his wife Patricia and his secret agent Kissinger, the chap who has arranged this trip, and he took a planeload of secret service men and went to see Mau-Mao and Chew-and-Lie, the two head reds in China.

Many things happened while Nixon was in Peking.  First of all, Chew-and-Lie met them at the airport, and Peking correspondent sez there were no cheering crowds there maybe because president and Chew-and-lie had cool relations before, I mean they did not dig the same things about peace and war they were supposed to.  Anyway, that is why President Nixon went to Peking, I mean to patch up things about war and peace …

Anyway, then they had a reception for the Americans and they drank lots of toasts and Nixon smiled many times his grinning smiles, and there were lots of these Chinese who all dress and look alike … After that, they had climbed the wall and Dick Nixon said it was unbelievable, I mean the Chinese wall, which is the biggest wall in the whole world.  Then, they visited tombs of Chinese dictators, and after that American President met Mau-Mao himself, the chief man in Red China.  This man also wrote the red book.  He must be very smart, because everybody in China waves and shakes this book on account [of] what smart things are inside and they always quote it.  Even some red punks here in Tozonto — I mean those who dig Mau-Mao — carry this book and some­times shove it into your nose, if they don’t like you and happen to demonstrate …

In the theatre in Peking, the Red Chinese took Nixon and his wife Pat and all others to watch the red ballet.  Everything in this red China is red.  So this ballet lasted about five hours, and the story was about this revolutionary red girl.  Those correspondents who watched the ballet all agree that the ballet is real stinko propaganda and it wouldn’t pay the rent for the theatre in our city, never mind the profit.  Anyway, this Dicky Nixon, they say, was so exasperated watching this stinky ballet that halfway through he wanted to kick his darling Pat under the chair, but even that he could not do, because between him and his wife there sat this Mau-Mao’s wife who created this lousy show.

Anyway, even Patricia Nixon, Dick’s wife, did her part, they say, to promote better relations with the Red Chinese.  She visited the kitchen in the banquet hall, and she smiled many smiles to the cooks and, then, she visited the pig sty in the commune and smiled her many charming smiles to the pigs … Real great I mean.

Dick Nixon’s people carried a black box in which the correspondents say was a radio telephone and a button, so that if the talks did not go well with Mau-Mao and Chew-and-Lie or if these red murderers tried something cocky he could summon his boys to deliver some punches.  But everything went okay, they say, and President Nixon did not use the black box.

People on this side watched RV [sic] right from Peking.  I watched it too on account of this was a very important historical event, if you don’t believe my honest word you better listen to Dick Nixon who said that was the week that would change the world.  That may be so.  Anyway, people who watched Nixon on TV from Red China called him every dirty name in the book on account of he was hobnobbing with people who murdered over thirty million people and thousands of Americans in Korea.  Some think Nixon did a
complete turnabout on his old friends in Taiwan, sold them to the Red Chinese and, because of this, many people call him Chamberlain.  Before Nixon left Red China for home there was a long statement issued in which the Red Chinese and Nixon promised to build many bridges for peace and, also, Nixon promised to withdraw his troops from Taiwan, disregarding a mutual defence treaty with the legitimate Chinese nationalist government, the best American ally in Asia.  This looks like a complete sell-out to the reds.

In conclusion, this Nixon trip to China (like he calls it a “trip for peace”) must be a really bad thing for free countries, mainly for the United States and also Canada.  Local pinkos already call it a victory for Mau-Mao and Chew-and-Lie and grin their ugly dirty smiles.  I mean you can judge yourself …

The business people are very satisfied because apparently now the doors will open wide for trade with the Red Chinese.  They will sell them heavy machinery for transport, agriculture, factories, all kinds of strategic material and technical knowledge; in exchange they will get at least one giant panda for the American zoo, many spices, and textiles.  Lots of local people in business, who know, say that there will develop a Chinese fad in fashion and maybe foods.  One of my friends jokingly sez that we may all wear cotton-padded overcoats, like millions of Chinese.  Maybe some will.  I don’t know what they are good for.  Maybe when you drive a Ski-doo or a Sno-jet, then you run into something and roll out, maybe you don’t get hurt.”
