GK. PRICE (May 15) is • right when he says that the Labour and Liberal parties are "dominated by the secular humanists." Thank heaven there are some good Christians left in these parties, but it must be faced that some of the policies being put forward are anti-christian and should be resisted. Let us hope that a Christian Democrat party or a Social Credit party may one day be formed in this country.
One of the ominous things about the disgraceful unborn children experiment affair was a spokesman's inference on I.T.V. that the public were not yet ready for this kind of thing. When will we be ready? In 1980?
And will the next ten years be as productive as the last in the promotion of humanist legislation via the Labour party? As a result of insidious humanist propaganda, the methods of which have been exposed recently by Dillon MacCarthy, we are witnessing the gradual de-christianisation of the country.
One way to call a halt to this dangerous slide is for Christians of all denominations to join the recently formed Christian Political Union to oppose politicians of all parties whose avowed aim is to have only man-made laws. "Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain who build it."
G. Madder Warrington, Lancs.
Time for action
SURELY thetime has now come for Catholics to act. The recent horrifying news that human embryos are being used for scientific research must have provoked the analogy with Nazi Germany in many people's minds. Often after the war we heard the question: "What were the ordinary people doing to allow this to happen?" What are we doing now?
We have a General Election coming soon. I would suggest that we forget party loyalties and vote instead for people who will pledge themselves to bring humanity back to this country.
Perhaps groups could be formed in parishes that could attend every political meeting and bombard the candidates with questions on where they stand in regard to abortion, euthanasia and so on.
Let our Catholic students also demonstrate, because in the final analysis all the burning questions of the day—apartheid, Vietnam, Cambodia— all come down to one basic question: "Is human life sacred, and is human dignity to be preserved?"
Mary D. Edwards Bexley Heath, Kent.
ISUGGEST for your deliberate consideration that the names of all those Members of Parliament who voted in favour of the Abortion Act in the House of Commons should be extracted from Hansard and published in the CATHOLIC HERALD.
In respectfully submitting this proposal I also suggest, for the benefit of your readers, that the names should be published before the date of the forthcoming Parliamentary General Election.
J. C. O'Shea Hove, Sussex.
