    Background: Amid their own domestic troubles, one group of Japanese Christians have found time to demonstrate their support for President Richard Nixon of the United States. After a prayer meeting on Friday (25 January), 1,500 members of the "Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity" marched to the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo to deliver messages of support for the President. They were addressed to American Vice-President Gerald Ford and the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives' Carl Albert.

    During their prayer meeting, the Christians called on the people of the United States to forgive their President, who is currently embroiled in a series of domestic problems, and follow Christian precepts.

    The demonstrators called for forgiveness, love and unity -- the theme being used by the Korean evangelist, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon who is currently making a 21-city tour of the United States. Master Moon, as he is known to his followers, is the leader of the group responsible for the Tokyo fully, and has been calling on the American people to show support for their President during his religious crusade.
