PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW» Pope Pius Blasts Totalitarian State Pontiff Charges Suppressions of "True Justice" CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy, Nov. 14. (AP)—rope Plavxn bitterly assailed "anti-Christian totalitarian states" today, accusing such nations of suppressing true justice by application of unjust laws. The pontiff laid suppression of "true" .rights in totalitarian state.? to ."prophets, defenders and creat- ers ol a culture, a power of the state and a legislation which does not recognize God and his sovereign rights." The Pope, in an address to the sacred Roman Rota—the supreme court of Catholicism—bitterly ns- sailed recent trials in such states. Me did not mention Communist states by that name, but there was little doubt those were the ones he meant. Nor did lie say Just which trials he referred to. However, he mentioned trials of "public officials," indicating he might have been refer- ing to the recent upsurge of 'Tito- 1st trials in the states of the Soviet orbit. These states, the Pope said, cannot return to a "moral order" without first restoring Christian principles of law. He said the sn.ijre.s- sion of rights in these states was an "eror of juridical postivism," which he defined as absolute stale law as opposed to Christian principles. "Absolutism of the state Is equal to deification of the state itself," the pope said. This was the Pope's second important address on legal matters within & week. Last week, In a speech to Italian Catholic lawyers, the Pope cautioned Catholic Judges everywhere not to recognize "unjust 'laws/' and beware of granting civil divorces in marriages which are "valid- before God and the church."
