CORNELL AP Religion Writer Day after day, for about three months, 11 church workers and a battery of lawyers have faced a federal court jury in Tucson, Ariz., in a trial loaded with significance and ironies. It involves openly proclaimed deeds, but the main prosecution witness has been a hired, secret informant. It pits the government against individuals for doing what they call their religious duty, but Judge Earl H. Carroll has prohibited any evidence about religious motivations. Crimes are charged, but the defense also has been barred from contending the actions were not crimes under U.S. law. These were among many ironies of the drawn-out trial of sanctuary workers that has brought a basic and unusual confrontation between church and state. So grating is the collision that two other lawsuits have been filed by churches against the federal government as a result. "The relationship between church and state has been threatened," says the Rev. James E. Andrews of Atlanta, chief executive of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. "All American religious groups have a stake in this matter." The 11 on trial are two Roman Catholic priests, a nun, a Presbyterian minister, two Catholic laywomen, a United Methodist layman and laywoman, two Quakers and a Universalist Unitarian laywoman. They're accused of conspiracy to smuggle aliens from conflict-ridden Central America into this country and to transport and harbor them. That's something that church people in the sanctuary movement have declared publicly they were The Salina Journal Saturday, January 25,1986 Page 8 Religious values strengthen democracy NEW YORK (AP) - A study by a noted "think tank," the Brookings Institution, has concluded that the stability and future strength of American democracy depends on the underpinnings of religion. Without it, "democracy lacks essential moral support" to sustain it, the report says. After three years of examination and analysis of basic ingredients holding society together, the report concludes that secular value systems fail "to meet the test of intellectual credibility" for doing the job. Representative "government depends for its health on values that over the not-so-long run must come from religion," the report says. Through religion, "human rights are rooted in the moral worth with which a loving Creator has endowed each human soul, and social authority is legitimized by making it answerable to a transcendent moral law," the report says. The Washington institution, one of the country's largest and most prestigious independent organizations for scholarly research, generally has been regarded over the years as liberal in its appraisals. The new 389-page report, entitled "Religion in American Public Life," takes several positions regarded as conservative, suggesting civil policies more accommodating to religion.

Rejecting arguments of strict church-state separationists that barring all expressions or symbols of religion from public life would mean government neutrality about religion, the report says: "Banishment of religion does not represent neutrality between religion and secularism; conduct of public institutions without any regard to religion is secularism... "A society that excludes religion totally from its public life, that seems to regard religion as something against which public life must be protected, is bound to foster the impression that religion is either irrelevant or harmful." The report was written by A. James Reichley, a government specialist, in consultation with other Brookings scholars. He formerly was an editor of Fortune magazine and legislative adviser to former Pennsylvania Gov. William Scranton. Exploring various non-religious value systems, such as those based on self-interest or social interest, the report says they would leave human rights at the mercy either of "selfish interests" or "established secular WORSHIP AT THE CHURCH OF YOUR CHOICE SALINA MENNONITE CHURCH Miller Chapel, Pioneer Hall.

It still goes on increasingly, leaders say, even as the 11 face possible five-year prison terms if convicted. About 270 churches and synagogues from coast to coast, each acting independently, give asylum to such refugees. Representative assemblies of several entire denominations have backed the movement, including the Presbyterian Church, United Church of Christ, American Baptists, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), American Lutherans, United Methodists and Reform and Conservative wings of Judaism. So, too, have a growing list of cities declaring themselves "sanctuary cities" — Madison, Wis.; Cambridge, Mass.; Tacoma Park, Md.; Seattle, Wash.; and Los Angeles, San Francisco and Berkeley, Calif. Adding to the ironies, proposed legislation before Congress, the De Concini-Moakley bill, would suspend deportation of Central American refugees, now the general U.S. policy for those caught. Such legislation would specifically make legal what the case against the 11 calls criminal.

In those cases, "either the self or society must finally be regarded as sovereign," the report says, providing no definite, solid basis for individual rights. "Persons subscribing to a classical humanist ethic are driven to hypocrisy or cynicism" — either pretending a "fellow feeling for the masses" not sustained by that value system, or scorning their ways, the report says. "In either case, social bitterness between humanist elites and the mass of working-class and middle- class citizens is bound to follow," the report adds. It says: "In a highly mobile and heterogeneous society like the United States, the values based on religion are even more essential to democracy than they may be in more traditional societies, where respect for freedom, order, and justice may be maintained for some time through social inertia or custom." However, the study points out thafreligious fanaticism may easily lead to social tragedy," citing the turmoil in Northern Ireland, Iran, Lebanon and India. "Democracy, while largely based on values that come ultimately from religion, must be ever on guard against abuses that some tendencies within religion foster," the report says.

Jayne, Pastor "The key role of religion in maintaining the health of democracy gives all citizens, including those who are themselves without religious faith, a large stake in the way the churches carry out their roles in secular society." The report examines at length various philosophies and value systems, finding them insufficient to safeguard democratic rights without religious concepts securing them in an anchorage transcending human powers. ' Probing American history, the report says the founding fathers never intended for the Constitution's First Amendment, in prohibiting government establishment of religion, to prevent "acknowledging dependence of civil society, as all life, on transcendent direction." "The First Amendment is no more neutral on the general value of religion than it is on the general value of free exchange of ideas or an independent press," the report says. "The founders' conviction that free institutions derive much of their moral vitality from religion also led them to authorize numerous symbolic expressions of the religious character of the American people."
