Page 40-THE HERALD, Provo, Utah Thursday. April 10, 1975 ^ Women's Group Answers Action By California Catholic Bishop WASHINGTON (UPI) - The National Organization for outside the Papal Nuncio in the District of Columbia May 11 to Women has accused the bishop protest the church's treatment of of the San Diego Roman Catholic women members, nuns and attempting to disenfranchise" diocese of "spiritually women by denying communion women's issues, such as abortion and birth control. "We are now calling for this to members of NOW or any group regional action to be a nacional that supports abortion. In a statement issued by Jan Uebmann, NOW's vice president for legislation, the group i^ O f Coercion of women who action for members from all over the country to tell the hierarchy they cannot use this called on women across the country to join in a "Day of ^ Outrage" May 11 to protest the decision by Bishop Leo Maher of San Diego. Maher, in a letter to all parish priests in his four-county diocese, declared that "no person who claims and professes views that are contrary to the teachings of the church can daim to be a practicing Catholic, nor are they to be admitted to the sacraments." The letter, which was to be read from pulpits this Sunday, singled out NOW for its "shameless agitation" for abortion and added that NOW members are guilty of "a serious moral crime." Ms. Uebmann said in her statement that NOW also "has been under attack from the Catholic hierarchy" in Missouri and Illinois. "We feel this now is an attempt are members of the church," she A spokesman for the National Conference of Catholic Bishops and its action arm, the U.S. Catholic Conference, said it planned to make no statement about Bishop Maher's letter. "The local ordinary (bishop) does have the authority to make such a decision," he said. "I presume he is looking at the local pastoral situation." Catholic officials said they knew of no other bishop who has forbidden communion to members of NOW or any Catholic free choice advocates. But there have been related instances. In Chicago last year, a Catholic burial was denied a parishoner who had actively been involved in an abortion clinic and a baby was denied baptism in Massachusetts because of his mother's views on abortion. Aides of Teen-Age Guru Say He's Gone to India DENVER (UPI) - Guru Maharaj Ji, the teen-aged spiritual leader disowned by his mother for breaking with tradition, has gone to India to reorganize the Divine Light Mission, an aide said this week. "The guru's intentions are to assume control of the mission in India and put the management in the hands of trusted followers," said Joe Anctil, the 17-year- by the bishop in San Diego to old guru's news secretary. "The spiritually disenfranchise all now members who are Catholic, "she said. She noted that NOW's northeastern chapters already were planning to demonstrate new management will not include his mother or his eldest brother." "It is important to point out that with the exception of his mother, eldest brother and a small handful of others, Guru Maharaj Ji's six million followers are firmly behind his leadership and inspiration," said Anctil. On April 1 in New Delhi, the guru's mother, Rajeshwari Devi, officially disowned her son, called a "child God" by his followers. She said her son "has continuously disrespected my will by adopting a despicable, nonspiritual way of life." The guru, who married his secretary last year, earlier this year was criticized by former financial aide Michael Garson for expensive tastes.
