COME AS YOU AREI l'uCHUkly No Noted Rabbi Cites Catholic Advantage Over Other Faiths Little Rock -- Rabbi Richard L. Rubenstein voiced some seman- tic shockers when he addressed a Little Rock audience last week, but, in the process, he may have loosened his grip on the title "the foremost Jewish 'God Is Dead' theologian." "God is not dead," he admitted in his discourse on "Contempor- ary Culture and the New Religious Sensibility." but "the symbol of (God's) authority is not function- ing the way it did for our grand- parents." Rabbi Rubenstein, the first of three prominent intellectuals in the 1969 Little Rock Lecture Ser- ies sponsored by the Holy Souls Council of Women, addressed more than 300 persons February 27 in the Arkansas Arts Center audi- torium, and discussed why "old insights are not working" today. He cited the impact of televi- sion on "religious sensibilities" and posed the view that modern youth, "born into a world of communications revolution", is less "book oriented" and seeks "sensuous" expressions of its re- ligious beliefs. He said "the pill is the most radically revolutionary single going to have to find the way to a solve the problem.
