PAGE 2 THE GUARDIAN, FEBRUARY 15, 1974 From tke Manang Editor's Desk.. Rash judgment is a common sin nowadays. An assent with- out sufficient reason to the existence of a moral defect in another is a sin against justice and is opposed to the virtue of prud- ence.. Yet how many people are guilty of rash judgment even of friends and relatives. Consider the life of Our Lord. If someone had moved into a neighborhood and it was said He was born in a stable, would not people think his parents must have been bums? If it were reported the family had left the country secretly and that all infants in their old neighborhood then were murdered, what would their new neighbors think? Then, if it were reported that I Any size Bus available, from school bus to luxury air con- ditioned coaches.

The nun, who teaches a visually handicapped group in northern New Jersey, had come to Philadelphia to visit an op- tometrist and had stopped at an office building to use a restroom. She was accosted in the hallway by a man with a knife who snatched her glasses and forced her into an elevator. The man then took her down to a boiler room where he raped her, police said. His cousin was executed for insulting the queen by calling her an aduitress, would not the whole family be considered trouble-makers? Suppose He had been a carpenter until age 30 and then had started preaching and claiming to be the Son of God. Suppose His helpers walked off their regular jobs to follow Him. Suppose He started a riot in church, over- turning benches and cracking a whip. Suppose He criticized intellectuals and priests and asked people to abandon their possessions and follow Him. Suppose he convinced many people He was a afaithhealer who was able to raise the dead. Suppose one of His closest friends turned Him over to the authorities and that the rest of His friends hid themselves and one of them denied knowing Him. Finally, suppose the authnrities put Him to death for FRIGIDAIRE SALES & SERVICE Washer, Dri,,,Rehlllmor, Freezer. ms _wher, Ran, Sdr Condkmr Bob and Hildo Nard Phone.666-2826 4208 WEST MARKHAM • Ln'rLE ROCK, ARKANSAS 72205 i 000000'ARK'ROK ASPHALT ROOFING A QUALITy PRODUCT OF Southern asphalt roolin9 corp. )$00 E.

It was such a remarkable weekend in so many ways, that we want to share the experience with you and your readers. As parents of teenagers, we have sometimes questioned the values and future of young adults in our present world. After a weekend with some 90 young high school adults, and after listening, talking, and working with them in their Search for Christian Maturity, we can only be impressed at the openness, integrity, love and zeal that exists in this segment of our Church. Certainly, the future is secure with young people like these. It is seldom that we have experienced such a feeling of Community and of caring as we did during the weekend. This feeling was particularlyevident in the young people who worked spiring example of young Catholic adult leadership in our Church. Joe & Alice Rolf Little Rock Dear Editor: Let it be known that all Catholic laymen do not agree with or approve the ratification of the Genocide Convention. The Genocide Convention is a fraud and a hoax. Its real purpose is to further ensnare the United States in the collectivist intrigues of the Communist-controlled United Nations and to subject our domestic disagreements to adjudication by the United Nations. Concerned Catholics are wiring and telephoning their Senators to urge detemined opposition, to this reprehensible treaty. Judy Ludwig North Little Rock free Braille services. The response of editors like yourself and of their concerned readers was most effective. Through that help, we are now sending free reading materials offering comfort and encouragement to a far greater number of Deafblind persons. To reach this type of han-. dicapped person, it is essential to have the help of the sighted person. SO, again we ask your subscribers to assist us in this difficult but most important task -- locating and serving the Deafblind throughout the U. S. and Canada. Especially, we would like to offer to them our free weekly newsletter -- the Deafblind Weekly - the only current religious brailled publication of its kind. It affords the Deafblind the opportunity to read in- spirational, as well as in- formative articles of current interest.

'-- so hard to make the weekend possible and in the Liturgy which they planned. Their leadership and apparent love of God can only be an example and inspiration to us all. This program is undoubtedly a blessing to our Diocese. We strongly recommend it to any adults who may have op- portunity to participate in the future.

Suppose, later on, that 11 of His 12 best friends came to bad ends, were convicted and executed, and that the 12th, a fellow named John, died a natural death but only after an unsuccessful attempt to kill him by boiling him in oil. Considering all this, would there not be widespread rash judgments of the only perfect Man Who ever lived? Tax Penalty Proposed For Larger Families Fla. (NC) - The Florida Legistlature is being asked to back a measure which, among other things, would impose an income tax surcharge on tax- payers claiming five or more dependent children. In a pre-filed memorial for the 1974 session, which begins April 2, C. Fred Jones a legislator from Auburndale, Fla., is asking the legislature to petition the U.S. Congress to change the Internal Revenue Code to encourage taxpayers to have fewer children. Under the proposed plan, taxpayers, claiming three dependent children would be allowed to deduct for only one child. Those claiming four children would be entitled the same deductions allowed for a person with no children. For every child claimed as a dependent in excess of four, a surcharge equal to the tax on an additional $750 taxable income would be levied. L Don.t Be Confused About the Faith Read The Guardian Dear Editor: What misguided group dares claim to represent Catholics in urging ratification of the ; Genocide Convention? It is difficult to believe that a sincere Catholic would he associated with any group that would condemn Hitler for persecuting the Jews and not condemn the genocidal ac- tivities perpetrated many times over by Communist govern- ments since the Genocide Convention was drawn up by the United Nations 25 years ago. Maybe the group feels the Communist governments are exempt from outlawing genocide. There is no doubt the Genocide Convention would offer the United States nothing more than a trap to subject our domestic affairs to adjudication by the Communist-controlled U.N. Joseph E. Garthoeffner North Little Rock Dear Editor: Some of our latter day "hi-fi- luten" theologians seem to like the sound of their own trumpets. First they had the "together- ness" theme. Then it was the "God is Dead" bit. Sub- sequently everything was a "Mystery," the biggest mystery being what they were talking about. The latest fad seems to be the "myth." According to them most of the Bible is myth. Adam and Eve were myths. Jonah and the whale were myths. Th resurrection and ascension were myths. Christ didn't know that He was God and they are not too sure. They tell us not to talk too much about original sin because the teaching of the church on that is going to be changed, or rather developed, because church doctrine doesn't change. They just develop it according to their own peculiar ideas. The biggest myths nowadays are these theologians, "phonies" to the core.
