"The large body of the Chris¬ tian F'ront is made up of the dregs of the Irish community", he says, anil "the long history of isolation and discrimination In Boston has built Into the Irish-American mind such a sensitlvene.ss to critlci.sm, and so automatic an impulse to de¬ fend anything Irish and any¬ thing Catholic, that the vast ma¬ jority of respectable Irish-Amer¬ ican citizens find themselves used as a shield by the breeders of hate ami disunity . . ." Speaking of tolerance and goodwill movements in Boston, organized in an effort to stem and extirpate AntiSemltism, he observes: "Yet In those move¬ ments the Catholic Chlirch In Boston has nol come strongly forward. With ull its enormous pr'(>stlge and power, it has chos¬ en to speak little anfl late. Among Catholics there is a widespreafl feeling that if the Church fights antl Semilism it lays Itself open to the charge of having fostered it before". Tlie Avriler says thai "though one can unflerstand why that atti¬ tude |)erslsts, one cannot agree with any part of it". In a flirect appeal to the Catholic Church of Boston, he says: "For the sake of rellglt)us peace in the city of Bf)ston, ftir tho sake nf the Amerkran.ci-eofi of diversity without flisunlty, il la high time Catholicism in Rfjs- ton made very clear that It Is not In sympathy with the prop¬ hets of dlssenslf)n".
