"`Reader's Digest' has published an article alleging that the World Council of Churches (WCC) has drifted away from a goal of Christian unity and embraced a political agenda with Marxist overtones. An article published in February  alleges some WCC leaders have been agents of the KGB, the former Soviet spy agency. WCC General Secretary Konrad Raiser said the 'Reader's Digest' article, entitled 'The Gospel According to Marx', was distorted and one-sided". "Rev. Alyson Barnett-Cowan, ecumenical assistant to the general secretary of the Canadian Anglican church, said the 'Reader's Digest' article `depends on distortion of fact'. ... Ms. Barnett-Cowan added that many vital aspects of the work of the WCC were not touched on by the article."
