"JESUS: AMERICAN CITIZEN" CHAMPIONS
WEAK, AIDS THE UNFORTUNATE
have been "caught in the act." He
DY THE REV. CHARLES STELZLE
Jesus is a gentleman. Especially
in His treatment of women. He al
ways speaks generously of them
never taking cheap flings at them,
nor using them as illustrations of
anything but the finer, nobler qual
ities. He doesn't tolerate a double stan
dard of morals for the sexes. He in
sists upan a square deal for women
in this regard. Never does He make
a distinction between men and
women in rights or duties.
Champion of women's rights He
is in the biggest, broadest fashion!
Children have no truer, gentler
friend. The Ideal City has been pic
tured in the Bible as a place in which
happy children are "playing in the
streets."
Jesus wants to make His city that
kind of a town and He won't per
mit dirty streets, nor will He allow
anything else in the streets of His
city that might defile these little
ones.
And woe betide the exploiter of
children!
It were better for him that a mill
stone were hung about his neck and
that he were cast into the depths of
the sea he will get no mercy from
Jesus! Jesus will pursue him relent
lessly clear to the end of the road.
His treatment of "sinners" is not
maudlin. Jesus is never that. But
toward those who have fallen He is
always tender and generous. He
makes it clear that He hates sin
but he loves the sinner and there is
a big 'difference.
He is determined to destroy the so
cial evil, but He will not heartlessly
.turn, adrift even the prostitutes who
will find out why women' "eo wronc."
And when He gets all the facts
watch out!
His treatment of the real offender
will be like unto that accorded child
exploiters! It will fare hardly with
those who are guilty whether they
occupy high or low places in society.
The hungry, motherless girl
"whose fingers thin, pushed from her
faintly want and sin" will find in Je
sus a chivalrous fighter, ready to
smash the brutes who damned her.
And the artisan the "low-browed,
stunted, haggard man" dwarfed in
body and mind and soul because, of
the greed of his master for him Je
sus will battle until justice becomes
the motto of shop and 'office and
stock exchange.
Cold-blooded schemers who rob
widows and orphans and helpless
men He- wl'l specifically denounce,
but men and women gone wrong be
cause of weakness of will aricl per
version of passions will have His"
sympathy and compassion.
The sick, the imprisoned, the hun
gry, the unfit, the "down and outs"
and those suffering because of great
burdens due to poverty these have
gripped the great heart of Jesus
American citizen.
This is the fourth of five articles.
Tomorrow Dr. Stelzle will discuss
Jesus' love.
Tereschtenko, Russia's new
finance man, sounds good. Sds he'll
sock a tax on war profits and organ-,

ney and cheaper food, ought to help
some.
