Prelate v. Race Discrimination

The Archbishop of Boston has taken State action in the fight against racial discrimination in employment.

'P.M. reports that Archbishop Richard J. Cushling, through his representative, Fr. John S. Sexton. appeared in March at.a. hearing of a State Legislative Committee, declaring that. " am here only because there. is involved in this matter a clear cut and vital moral issue. I cannot think of anything more nastily anti-Christian than persecution of arty man because he is what God made him.

" The ultimate solution," said Mgr. Cushling, " is a conversion of hearts but in the meanwhile this legislation gives us the opportunity to record that our State is bn the side of the Angels."

Each of the seven bills has the same objective, to. ban job discrimination " because of race, religion, creed, colour, national origin or descent."
