SEPTEMBER, 1950 THE JEFFERSONIAN Page !) Lightning Strikes Jefferson Church ■«' Religion Or Else •Religious liberals have becomo * alarmed over secularism in the {public schools and have headed a movement to bring religion back to the schools, because the divi- of function between church state has been a failure. As aXiresult, children no longer have any inkling of what religion ;V<«ehes or stands for and are (being graduated as RELIGIOUS ILLITERATES. iffThere are only two ways out this predicament; one is to iput religion back into the curri- culum of the public school and the other is for Protestants to esta- blish parochial schools somewhat on the model of the Roman Cath- olic schools.

In an editorial, entitled, "EVEN PROTESTANTS ARE IMPRESS- ED," the colored paper noted that North Carolina Baptists (Negro) had recently given Catholics high praise for applying Christian prin- ciples to the problems of the South.

The Duke lilmBelf wiites that "what separated ub (i.e. himself and Baldwin) was not a sinful wish on my part but rather the question of my right to marry as other men do." In other words, in Edward's own testimony the opposition to him was not concerned about the prin- ciple of his wish being "sinful' or morally wrong but rather was motivated by pure political ex pedlency that he as King couldn't mairy the woman of his choice when such a choice would jol the social respectability of Eng- land's ruling class. EDWARD CAUGHT IT Bdward himself caught the soc- ial respectability angle, the lack of principle in his opposition.

Cod honors Mary: it is only fit. ting that Catholics honor her al- fco. "I am the first, and I am the last, and besides me there is no Cod" (Is. 44:(i). "1 am the Lord thy God from the land of Egypt: and thou shalt know no God but me, and there is no savior be sides me". "Every 'best gift, and every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from ithe Father of lights, with whom there 1b no change, nor shadow of alterations" (James 1:17). "1 am the Almighty God; walk be- fore me, and be perfect" (Gen. 17:1). "There iH no wisdom, there Is no prudence, there is uo counsel against the Lord" (Prov. 21: 30). Whoever denies one of these truths blasphemes God. If Catholics adored the Blessed Vir- gin, as the misinformed say, they would be making a mockery of religion, and could not claim to be the true custodians of the Bible, wherein these truths...

OCTOBER 1950 THE JEFFERSONIAN Page 5 Our Ladyvs Assumption Is Challenged Real Presence— (Continued from page 3) words that are among the plain- est and clearest in the whole Bible whether you use a Catholic or Protestant edition. JESUS MADE A PROMISE 1. Some time before giving the first holy communion to His Apos- tles at the Last Supper Jesus made a promise regarding it. Read this promise in full as we find it in the Gospel of St. John, chapter vi. 50 to 06. It begins with "I am the living ibread which came down from heaven — and the bread that I will give is my flesh" etc.— Read it carefully and Blowly and then a°k yourself: "What does Jesus promise to give? Is it His real flesh and blood or is it mere bread and wine?" His words are so plain and clear that every one can un- derstand them. NOT A MERE MAN BUT GOD You may not be able to under- stand how Our Lord is going to fulfill His promise tout you can scarcely help understanding that He really promises to give His flesh to eat a...
