6 Gofesburg Register*Mail L Golesburg, Saturday June 9, 1973 Christians in Africa By LOUIS CASSELS Early Christians in Rome refused to acknowledge tlte World of Religion Roman emperor as a deity. For this political heresy, they were burned at the stake and fed to lions In the Coteseum. Two thousand years later, in the southeast African nation of Malawi, members of a Christian sect are undergoing a strikingly similar persecution. Thiey are being beaten, robbed, raped, murdered or driven from their homes because they refuse—for purely religious reasons—to buy memi- berahip cards in Malawi's Congress Party. The Congress Party is the only political organization permitted in Malawi, and anyone who declines to join it is regarded as subversive. This would create a problem of conscience for any Christian who believes in freedom and democracy. But it is especially difficult for members of Jehovah's Witnesses, who believe from teir reading of the Bible that they are required to take a completely neutral stance in all earthly political affairs, refus­ ing to join any party or take part in any election. No one has accused the Jehovah's Witnesses of Malawi of taking any overt or secret actions hostile toward the one- party government headed by Dr. H. Kamuza Banda. Their sole "crime" is adamant imous refusal to compromise their religious convictions by taking membership in a (political party. Although Band a considers himself a Christian —he holds *he title of elder in the Presbyterian Church —he has been implacable in his fury toward the people he calte "The Devil's Witnesses." He out- lAwcd their faith In 1067 end last year permltted-if he did not instigate*** bloody persecution that still continues.

Dave calls this his wedding picture. Ha was best niem^ffcntfartt^ndlwera married/ Gntiwpm ^1tyi0fflGWtotii*** He loved Jane from the first. He never thought of her as a stepmother. Jane's zest for life, her merry ways, her love for God were happily contagious. The unhappy years we'd known faded. Soon We were marching off to church with her as though it were our own idea. Tomorrow Dave will be married, and I'll be his best man. He and Susan are a fine couple. Jane and I don't worry about thetf marriage. Their relationship has a depth that comes from a mutual love for God and His Church. In the years ahead/thelrchurcfi will be a bedrock of understanding and strength. The Church is the starting point for the happiness that every /family needs.
