PURELY COMMENTARY

Politicized clericalism

Continued from Page 2

Christian citizens" or to
Jews and to many
others.
Many voters are con-
cerned about his mili-
tary policies. Many of
them were taught to
seek peace and pursue
it, and to remember the
poor and afflicted, the
sick and the old. In
short, religious issues in
this campaign may
work for the President
in some places but work
against him in others.
Lately, this fact seems
to have had some influ-
ence on the President
and Senator Laxalt. In
between their attacks
on their opponents, they
have been talking of
unity and peace.
"The greatest chal-
lenge of all," the
President said in his ac-
ceptance speech in Dal-
las, "is to reduce the risk
of nuclear war ... For
the sake of our children
and the safety of this
earth, we ask the
Soviets — who have
walked out of our
negotiations — to join us
in reducing and, yes,
ridding the earth of this
awful threat."
And his friend Mr.
Laxalt, introducing him
in Dallas, added this
personal note: "I know
how desperately he
wants peace . . . From
the very depths of his
soul, Ronald Reagan
wants to reach an ac-
cord with the Soviets
that will allow us to
share this planet peace-
fully. If I didn't believe
so, I would not be will-
ing to entrust the future
of my children and
grandchildren to his
leadership."
So while the vicious
slanders of the cam-
paign go on, the larger
themes of all the reli-
gions are beginning to
be heard. The Republi-
cans have dropped their
talk about the Soviet
"evil empire," not 43e-
cause they've changed
their minds but because
their religious appeal
has been too narrow
and too dangerous.
According to John
Buckley, the deputy
press secretary for the
Reagan-Bush cam-
paign, there are no
plans for future letters
to the clergy. Sometimes
when you reach out and

write somebody, even if
you're a 'leader under
God's authority,' you
get in trouble.
Why this lengthy quota-
tion? Especially to emphasize
that there are important is-
sues confronting the Ameri-
can people and that they must - vs
not be ignored or their impor-
tance obscured by the injection
of religion into politics. In a
sense, the Reston analysis is a
lesson for political office-
seekers and voters alike to
learn that there are serious is-
sues to be accounted for and to
be faced forthright.
In the process, there is the
importance in what Reston
wrote in renewing faith in an -
American ideal adhered to as
Separation and that none in
politics dare to pose as "lead-
ers under God's authority."
The die has been cast on the
subject. Reagan has been
heard. Mondale will be heard.
The American people will
judge. Their voices will surely
reach every Congressional
district in the land. Now there
is need for a measure of Con-
gressional courage to re- -
pudiate whatever has been
fanfared among tens of
thousands of Christian minis-
ters.
The additional, hoped-for
anticipation is that the most
expressive rejection of an ef-
fort to infuse religion into poli-
tics and to utilize religious
benefits for political gains will
come from churches and chur-
chpeople. That's how the
American spirit will predomi-
nate.

Death sentences
are commuted

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Two Israeli
Arabs condemned to death for the
murder of a Jewish hitchhiker in
1980 had their sentences corn-
muted to life imprisonment this
week. A five judge military court ;%
of appeals in Lod ruled that the
sentences imposed on Maher and
Karim Yunis, both 26, should be
amended because the death pen-
alty has never been carried out in
Israel — with the sole exception of
Adolf Eichmann.

The prisoners, who are related
and lived in Ara and Arara, vil-
lages north of Hadera, were con-
victed of murdering Avraham
Bromberg after they picked him
up hitchhiking. They were es-
corted from the courtroom Tues-
day shouting that they were inno-
cent.
