If Jesus had been born nineteen hundred years later and had begun to teach His gospel during the war, He woul have spent Christmas Day in the courts or un4er sentence to the penitentiary.. If He had talled in Washington as He talked in Jerusalem Ae would have been denounced as a wicked traltot by many militant ministers, have been vilified by most of the newspapers, would have, been arrested by Government agents, would probably have been brutally beaten by the Bomb Squad and would have been told in court that all this was done to Him to teach respect for law, order, and the Christian religion. Jesus would not have had a chance to talk in Washington during those two years of brutality and frenzied lunacy. Even the women of a uer tain type would have fought to tear His eyes out. Today Jesus would be reasonably safe in visit ing Washington in the flesh and preaching His doctrine of peace, good will, and passive re sistanee. .world has got that far bask on fta wa 1asomettng to be thankful for on this Christmas Day. It is not a whole lot, to be sure. But it is something. And itis something because it is an approach -no matter how halting and feeble-toward the spirit of the Christmas, which is the spirit and the essence of all that Jesus said and did while He walked among men. When we forsake humbug and attempt merely to SAY something that sounds fine or eloquent or pious, and get down to brass tacks and REALI TIES, the human characteristics of Jesus which challenge the homage of all men are His good ness, Nis kindness, His tolerahce of weakness, His scorn of cant and camouflage, His sense of economic justice, and His determined and out spoken opposition to the powerful predatory classes that were kow-towed to in His day-to the bankers who had made the Temple a den of thieves, to the lawyers who served them, to the scribes who flattered them, to the judges and the high priests who were controlled by them and to the whole body of profiteers and exploiters that composed them-exactly as they compose ow the so-called conservative and self-styled "better" classes. It is almost as unpopular today as it was in the time of Christ to teach that the fatherhood of God means the brotherhood of man, and that a civilization based upon selfishness, greed, cor rup tion, violence, and the wholesale murder of millions by command of the few who govern may be rich and splendid, but is not Christ-like. The blunt truth is that the so-called Christian world practices the teachings of Jesus Christ only one day In the year. On Christmas Day we all practice the doctrine that It Is more blessed to give than to receive, and all generously strive to do to others as we would that they should do to us. These are the two fundamental teachings of Jesus Christ, and in their brief words are con tained all the fundamentals of true social happi ness. true social justice, trepltetrue eco nomils, true and pemnent ciiaton. This world wil ever be as bright and joyous ar~d beautiful and al ther desirable as it could be until sek day of e ear is Christmas Day. We think that desirable and happy timewl come eventually.
