As originally introduced the resolution named Father Charles E. Coughlin the magazine Social Justice and the Christian Front and denounced them as advance agents of Fascism. The resolution committee recommended that the resolution in that form be referred to the executive board. After discussion on the floor the resolution was amended to eliminate all names.
