27 September 1968. Thought for the Week: "Freedom can only be won ... The warfare is continuous and each generation comes to the front to fight for it as though the battle had just been joined"
The Bulwarks of Freedom, by Bishop R.A. Brown.
THE LIBERAL PARTY AND "RIGHT-WING EXTREMISM"
"The Staff Committee directs the attention of Federal Executive to the attempts being made to attach to the Liberal Party the brand of what might be called Right Wing Extremism ... There is evidence of extreme Right Wing 'Plants' in party branches. The activities of the 50 club at Kings Cross Sydney, the Warringah 'incident', the pro-Rhodesian and pro-Apartheid manifestations should be read as warnings. Our Labor opponents may be expected to be active in attaching to the Liberal Party, a right wing faction as potentially dangerous as the Right Wing A.L.P. faction that produced the D.L.P. The Staff Committee designed to impair the unity and undermine basic principles of the Liberal Party" - A Confidential submission (No, 3) to the Federal Executive of the Liberal Party.
We are not in the position at present to state
who comprise the Staff Planning Committee of the Liberal Party, but
the above submission, and others, indicate that the Liberal Party is
being poisoned from the top by individuals who are the very ones undermining
the basic principles of the Liberal Party they claim to be so concerned
about. Reference to the Warringah 'incident' is most revealing, as it
indicates support for Mr. Edward St. John, the strong supporter of the
UN and opponent of Rhodesia.
If the Staff Planning Committee of the Liberal Party knew its business, it would know that public support for Rhodesia is such that a pro-Rhodesian stand is very good politics.
SIR ROBERT MENZIES ON RHODESIA
"The old rule of natural justice has been that
both sides of the case should be heard. To my simple colonial mind the
elementary rules of fair play have not been followed, because Rhodesia
has not been allowed to be present. I am not a racialist, but I still
believe that the dispute is one between the Government of the U.K. and
the Government of Rhodesia, and this was agreed unanimously by the Commonwealth
Prime Ministers. Later, equally unanimously, they agreed to the problem
going to the United Nations. There is an old Presbyterian rule about
taking problems to the Lord in prayer. That is one thing, but taking
a problem to the United Nations is quite another.
We trust that the above statement by the founder
of the Liberal Party will be brought to the attention of those so worried
about "Right-wing extremism".
Last weekend Sir Robert Menzies made an appeal from his sick bed in London, that the old British Commonwealth should be strengthened. This can only be achieved by the nations of the old Commonwealth ceasing to be influenced by the United Nations.
RED INFILTRATION INTO ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
"Archbishop Geraldo de Pronea Sigaud, SVD, of Diamantina, Brazil, has denounced 'Communist infiltration in the Catholic Church of Brazil', Le Monde, Paris daily, reported". - The Tribune ( Melbourne Catholic Weekly), September 12.
The evidence continues to mount concerning Communist
penetration of all sections of the Christian Church. In a statement
to the press in Paris on August 16, Archbishop Geraldo de Pronea Sigaud
said: "Communist infiltration in the Catholic Church of Brazil
is so visible that only the desire to preserve an appearance of Catholic
life or the desire not to alarm the faithful can explain the fact that
priests and bishops deny it".
INTELLECTUALS ADVOCATE VIOLENCE
"A meeting of Melbourne University students last night voted that violence in Australian politics was justified. The motion was carried by 112 to 89 votes with 21 abstentions" - The Sun, Melbourne, September 13.
Violence in Australian politics, violence in
American politics, violence in British, French, German, Mexican politics,
with that new force in revolutionary political activity, the Students
to the forefront. The phenomenon of "student power" all over the world
is now established as a key weapon in the revolutionary turmoil engulfing
the Western world. The only country in the free world in which "student
power" has been challenged is South Africa where Mr. Vorster has warned
that the Government will not be intimidated by students who "have got
too big for their boots".
The evolution of the principle of violence as a justifiable and legitimate form of activity has been given greater impetus over the last few months. The lead has been taken by intellectuals, tutors, lecturers, professors and ministers of religion joining in a sophisticated campaign to moralise on "violence as a last resort in obtaining civil rights" as the Rev. S.I. Weeks backed by the Rev. J Westerman recently put it. (On Target August 23)
In the above report Dr. Alan Roberts, Monash
University physics lecturer helped along the vote for violence when
he advised his students, "you will be ineffective if you confine yourself
to nonviolence." He was joined by student Mr. Albert Langer who "what
we are advocating is the use of violence against violence". Mr. Langer
along with Mr. Michael Hyde ("The University is a means of revolution"
On Target June 28) are seeking election as Communists to the
Public Affairs Committee at Monash University. Explaining their stand
they said, "The Communism we are advocating is, of course, not the 'peaceful
co-existence' of the Soviet Union and its followers, but revolutionary
Adding fuel to the semantic ferment on the question
of "violence" we have such undefined statements as those by the Rev.
Arthur Preston of Wesley Church in Melbourne where a national platform
is provided for speakers on social issues. In his sermon reported in
The Age, September 23, he says, "The church must be more revolutionary
than communism ... 'Jesus Christ was the greatest revolutionary of all
time ... He released explosive ideas designed to destroy the old order
of discrimination and selfish competition and bring in new co-operative
social order...' It is the Christian's duty to seek a creative response
to the revolutionary fervour of our day. This means less talk and more
action", said Mr. Preston.
Fed to a young audience and using trigger words which are the trademark of the Marxist, "discrimination, selfish competition", in conjunction with "the new co-operative order", there is little doubt about the intent of such a sermon. Especially when the audience knows the views of the speaker on such matters as race, Vietnam etc.
From Mr. Preston we can go to Mr. John Howes
Lecturer in Philosophy at the Melbourne University writing in the regular
feature, Life and Church, in The Age, September 6, when
he reports on the thinking coming out of the general committee of the
Australian Student Christian Movement, which talks about "Christian
humanism" and Jesus as "the inspirer of change".
We agree that Christianity cannot bypass politics, but not with the perversion, which today has almost destroyed the basis of civilisation established through the teachings of Christ.
DIALECTICAL MOVES CONTINUE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA
"Heavy military traffic over Prague yesterday suggested the Soviet Union may be starting a pullout of occupation troops" - The Age, Melbourne, September 24.
Anyone reading the newspapers ever since the
Czech "crisis" started must recall similarly worded reports, amongst
the thousands of other speculations, prophecies etc. There are still
the hard facts, however, which must be remembered. The position of the
Soviet as the dominant force in Europe, and the role of the conspiracy
has not been dented one iota. We continue to talk peace" at Paris, allow
Russian ships into Haiphong enroute to Australia to pick up wool, after
discharging their lethal cargo intended to kill and destroy Australian
soldiers and our friends in the process of being betrayed in Washington,
London and Canberra.
Experienced observers of this conspiracy over 50 years must find it difficult to come to any other conclusion than the Czechoslovakian exercise was the result of long term planning designed to further the grip of Communism while making a tremendous assault on the fact failing moral reserves of the West.
ARCHDEACON LEWIS IN RHODESIA MAKES ANOTHER PLEA
"For years I worked in Tanganyika, thinking of nothing but the souls committed to my charge. Now from Radio Tanzania streams of false hood are pumped into this country in the African languages, accompanied by shrill demands that every Rhodesian African seize his spear and kill the nearest white man. Tanzania has a Christian President; it has Christian bishops and priests. But is this Christianity? I believe that in Rhodesia every priest - every Christian - has a duty to do what lies in him to ensure that Rhodesia does not go the same way" - The Australian Church Record, September 19.
Readers of the excellent publication Rhodesian
World Report will recognise the source of this plea from Archdeacon
Lewis, it being sent to the Australian Church Record by an interested
reader of that journal.
We were interested to note a recent report from London on the Rev. Oestreicher who was dealt with on television by Pastor Wurmbrand when the Rev. Oestrreicher questioned the views of the Pastor. From his background of 15 years imprisonment and bestial torture by the Communists the Pastor warned the Rev. Oestreicher on the state of his soul. The Communists have ensured there are not too many Pastor Wurmbrand's around to warn those who are destroying Christendom.
