Opposition to U.S. envoy at Vatican renewed

The Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America reaffirmed last week its " unalterable opposition " to United States diplomatic representation at the Vatican.

Mr. Myron Taylor, the President's personal envoy, recently resigned.

The Council adopted a resolution against sending " either a U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican or a personal representative of the President to the Holy See."

Such action, it said, would confer upon the Vatican a special status not held by other Churches in relation to the U.S. Government.

The C:hristian Science Monitor has repeated its opinion in a leading article that U.S. diplomatic relations with the Vatican should be ended.

Commenting on the argument that the Vatican should be recognised as the head of a religious organisation with millions of adherents all over the world, it says :

"To do so would be to confuse the basis of representation. No one seriously urges that similar diplomatic missions be sent to the leaders of other numerically important religions in the world.' .
