CIA safe in hands of President's commission

Perhaps the most difficult task that
could be assigned to any body of
people is that of investigating the
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
For the CIA. as it has evolved. is an
organization which values secrecy
above all else. even above the laws of
the nation it purports to serve.

So when President Gerald Ford. in
response to press reports alleging
violations of the CIA‘s charter.
decided to appoint an investigatory
commision one would hope he would
choose its members from among
noted civil libertarians or critics of
the CIA.

It appears that Ford was more
interested in finding men who could
be trusted to uphold the (‘IA‘s sacred
secrecy Titus he appointed Vice
President Nelson Rockefeller to chair
the commission.

Rockefeller has been a member
since 1969 of the President‘s Foreign
Intelligence Advisory Board which
reviews intelligence operations. It is
possible that Rockefeller and his




colleagues on the advisory board are
responsible for some of the (‘IA
abuses. Rockefeller is also known to
be favorable disposed towards

To determine the rightness or wrongness
of homosexuality the Christian does not
appeal strictly to the circumstantial
evidence of medical or sociological fin-
dings. such as case histories of
homosexuals. but he appeals also to an
authority far above human authority. The
(‘hristian's reason for this is to maintain
clear objectivin whenever possible and to
honor a (lod whose wisdom far surpasses

The Christian position on homosexuality

behaVior. it is no way conclusive or ab-
solute in affirming man's moral attitude
toward the issue of homosexuality. As a
result, the Christian’s position is to con—
sider both his accumulative evidence from
science. sociology. psychology, etc.. and
also to give ultimate consideration to
God‘s thoughts on the matter (God being
the only one capable of giving man outside.
objective direction on what to believe
spiritually and how to act morally.)
First. it is important to realize that any
homosexual activities of an individual are
a result of his own moral choice. The
responsiblity and results of this choice are
also his own. In June. 1963. a number of
specialists in medicine. psychiatry. law,
sociology and theology met in Switzerland
to take part in a conference on
homosexuality. The scientists demolished
the so—called “proof" that homosexuality
is consitutional or determined by one‘s
heredity. ()ne physician at the conference
said that hereditary homosexuality is an
empty label we apply when we cannot find
any other possible explanation for a
person's homosexual tendency in his case
history. A psychotherapist appealed to
conferees to do whatever they could to
dispel the myth that homosexuality comes
from a constitutional predisposition.
Several theologians stressed that the Bible

not only clearly establishes firm ethical
standards against homosexuality, it it
emphasizes renewal through the power of
God's spirit.

The Bible itself teaches that a person
chooses to be homosexual. Homosexuality
does not choose the individual. Nor is it a
sickness; a point avidly put forth by
homosexuals themselves. It is a deviant
form ofsexual behavior. whic, if chosen by
an individual, is a choice of his volitional
disposition, i .e. no one makes him do it. His
reasons for this choice are varied, but his
best opportunity for a normal heterosexual
life can come only by admitting his per-
sonal responsibility for his choice, and not
to major on the evasive external reasons
for his choice. This puts the responsibility
of the problem on the individual where it
can best be dealt with and cured. Blaming
society. background. etc.. for all our social
ills has already seen its day as the con~
venient scapegoat that it is. God’s way. as
shown in the Old and New Testaments, is
not to blame everyone else, but to blame
the individual who has erred. and to show
him how to overcome his sin. This is love in
action. Love always cures. It never stands
by while someone is in need of help. God‘s
desire is for us to escape from our
proneness to sin (a life-long struggle) and

“new birth in Christ” to establish such a

THE FIRST BOOK of Corinthians, (6: 9
11) in the New Testament is one of several
scriptural passages dealing with
homosexuality. It states: “Do you not
know that the unrighteous will not inherit
the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived;
neither the immoral, nor idolaters. nor
adulterers. nor homosexuals . . will inherit
the kingdom of God. And such were some
of you. But you were washed. you were
sanctified. you were justified in the name
of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of
our God."

This passage indicates God's attitude
toward homosexuality. adultery, etc.. and
toward the offender — two very distinct
attitudes. The first condemns the act. and
the second reveals love for the one who has
so acted. God‘s desire. then. is to l)
cleanse those who will repent. i.e. make an
about-face: 2) sanctify the offender. i.e.
help him or her live a more pure and
moral life style; and 3) to justify the in-
dividual, which means to treat him as if he
had never sinned at all. i.e. to forget it

This. then. is the full Christian position.
As God is. so the Christian is to be fully
against the act of homosexuality and also
against any overt or covert movement to
publicly or privately push homosexuality
as a normal. sanctioned style of life.
Furthermore. as God is. so the Christian is
to direct the homosexual toward a moral
lifestyle in (‘hrist. which is something we
humans often neglect. God is always
progressive. never regressive. He offers
this same help for fornicators. adulterers.
or those with any other sin.

I.\' RADIATION. the Christian does not
appeal solely to circumstantial data in
case histories to determine the rightness
or wrongness of homosexuality. though
this type of research should usually
discourage anyone from adopting
homosexual behavior. but the (‘hristian
appeals ultimateiy to God's position as
declared in the Bible. And God has made it
explicitly clear that he condemns the act
but reaches out to help the person who has
so acted. Because of this the homosexual
has a way out through the power of Christ.
It is ('hrist who offers forgiveness and
strength to overcome. and the

of course. after doing so. this makes the

although it does give him pow er to live for

THE Buckley Amendment be-
came effective Nov. 19. I974. The
law is basically designed to give
students privacy concerning re—
cords kept on them by educa—
tional institutions. according to
Dr. Ted Gilbert. a UK office of
the president staff member who
deals specifically with the Buck—
ley Amendment.

filllK‘f‘I said the law “precludes
the indiscriminate distribution of
student records.”the law is am-
biguous because it was quickly
passed and institutions of higher
education were brought in as an
afterthought. Gilbert said.

Residence hall staffs will not be
allowed to see student‘s records

Zumwinkle said. “If the
procedure is too cumbersome. we
may discontinue the practice (of
allowing residence hall staffs

Although the present interpre-
tation of the Buckley Amendment
is that residence hall staffs may
have access to students records.
Zumwmkle said he is waiting for
the HEW guidelines to discover
how the L'niversity must imple-
ment the law.

Zumwinkle‘s memorandum al-
so stated that he continues “to
believe that residence halls
should play a role in assisting
those students who are in serious
academic difficulty and that. in
order to do so effectively. such
staff require certain minimal
academic information."
