Whereas, Protestant churches across the U. S. have been urged to support a policy of diplomatic recognition of Communist China, and

Whereas, such a policy, if adopted by the U. S. Government, would undoubtedly lead certain nations in the Far East to capitulate to the demands and pressures of Peiping, thus cutting off the existing opportunities of Christian witness in such areas, and

Whereas, Communist China is dedicated to the overthrow of all religious principles and concepts,

BE IT RESOLVED THAT the National Association of Evangelicals reaffirm its opposition to recognition of Red China and seating of Red China in the United Nations and urge Christian citizens everywhere to communicate to those responsible government officials their opposition to the demands of the Communist dictators for such recognition.
