B.U.F. AND REPORTS OF RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION

Sue—As one who likes to study every angle of a question for myself, I have for some time been interesting myself in the literature of the B.U.F. in view of that movement's appeal to Catholics. Recent events seem to demand a question. Their organ, Action, is emphatic in its condemnation of religious persecution under Communism. Why is it silent about the persecution under the Nazis? I notice that in this week's Action the CATHOLIC HERALD is quoted in drawing attention to the onesidedness of the English Press over this matter of religious persecution; the Church's trials in Spain are ignored; the recent attack on Cardinal Innitzer's palace in Vienna is given scare headlines. Quite so; because it serves the policy of most of our national press to ignore the misdeeds of the Left and to stress those of the Right.

But this applies equally to Action. The " church burners " in Spain are constantly in the news in Action; their counterparts in the Reich are never alluded to. Will Action kindly explain, for the benefit of those who, like the writer, are

" PUZZLED."
