Dr. Maier spoke before 2,350 men and women of varied denominations at the second annual International Lutheran Hour Rally, sponsored by the Genesee Zone of the Lutheran Laymen's League.

"While I do not contend that another war can be avoided by reading, I believe that democratic living cannot approach any degree of success when the rank and file of people are incapable of the intelligent thought necessary to guide their government's actions," Van Ioren declared.

Speaks of Colleges The speaker noted that only one-third of American colleges are controlled by the church, and any are characterized by a shocking degree of religious illiteracy." He added that "Even worse is the outspoken opposition to Christian faith in many tax-supported schools." "As never before, Christians must understand the anti-religious forces that surround the church," Dr. Maier warned. "They must keep in mind the 4.500,000 past and present criminals in the United States; the 17,000,000 spiritually ignorant youth, the 65,000,000 unchurched Americans, and they must redouble their missionary efforts to reach these groups." Choral Union Sings He urged that Christian forces concentrate particularly on "infiltration of atheistic Communism from abroad, radical circles in our own country, atheism preached by high government officials, and modernistic pulpits." "High figures in Washington have repeatedly and publicly sought to discredit the early Scripture and deny the historicity of the Bible's first pages," he said.
