Rev. Joseph Christie, a leading Jesuit priest in Britain, denies an Anglican accusation that Catholics are hunting for converts among the seriously ill and dying. According to Christie, Catholics don't need to hunt for converts because "they are driven to us by Communist and agnostic clerics."

Rev. Christie says:

"No one who has been engaged in receiving converts into the church can have failed to notice that the first impetus comes, not so much from the proselytizing efforts of Catholics as from the deficiencies of the Anglican Church.

We do not need to seek converts: they are driven to us by Communist and agnostic clerics, within the establishment itself."
