APRIL, 1950 THE JEFPERSONIAN PAGE THREE Catholics Invited to Become Baptist INVITATION SHOWS NEED FOR UNION HAS ALL THINKING Dallas— All Catholics have been invited to become Baptists. The invitation was extended here b.v Dr. C. Oscar Johnson, presi- dent of the Baptist World Al- liance. Commenting on Pope Pius XII's Christmas invitation to all Pro- testants to return to the unity of "the one true Church," Dr. Johnson declared, "We are not accepting his invitation to come back." Baptists, Dr. Johnson said, could not "come back to the Catholic Church, because we were never a part of it." Baptists, he said went back to Bible times with some saying that John, a Disciple of Jesus, was the original Baptist. Technically, said the 6K year- old former Shakespearean actor. Baptists are not Protestants. QUIZZED ON TRUE CHURCH Asked in a press interview if iie thought Baptists could lay a claim to being "the one true church," Dr. Johnson replied: I "You will f'sid some Baptists who believe tha...

i § APRIL, 1950 THE JEFFERSON I AN PAGE FIVft Pope Expounds Common Sense View CHRIST ACTS THROUGH SACRAMENTS BUT PERSONAL PIETY IS SEEN AS VITAL TOO Editor's note: In this fifth ex- cerpt from the Papal Encyclical on the "Sacred Liturgy," Pope Pius, while noting that the Mass and the sacraments are of prime Importance in the worship of God, rebukes theories which reject the value of non-official acts of wor- ship. The excerpt follows:) "In this connection, Venerable Brethren, we desire to direct your attention to certain recent theo- ries touching a so called 'objec- tive' piety. While these theories attempt, it is true, to throw light on the mystery of the Mystical Body, on the effective reality of sanctifying grace, on the action of God in the sacraments and in the Mass, k is nonetheless appar- ent that they tend to belittle, or pass over in silence, what they call 'subjective,' or 'personal' pie- ty.

Onan complied but he didn't want to father ia son in his brother's name. His end was to avoid that. His tmeans were jigainst nature, UN- NATURAL. ABUSING SEX, he did not complete the natural marital act. The Bible relates what happened. Hard reading for modern Onanites, here it is in Genesis: 38: 7 to 10: "And Her, the first born of jj- da, was wicked in the sight of the 'Lord: and was slain by him. Juda therefore said to Onan his son: Go into thy brother's wife and marry her, that thou mayst raise aeed to thy brother.

"You see if we should accept It as a principle that every human being has to marry, then the most notorious violator of the command to marry would be Jesus Christ Himself.

Whiskey- ■hating Protestants and those who have no love for the Catholic Church are simply used by these fallen ministers of Our ILord as a means to a very good living.
