The Sandusky (O.) Star-Journal
It is doubtful if, since the days of the primitive Christians, there has been such a wonderful demonstration of religious faith and enlightened zeal as that exhibited at Boston, Sunday, when forty thousand Christian Scientists from all parts of the world assembled to participate in the dedication of the Extension of The Mother Church of that denomination. These people were of the highest order of intelligence, many of them prominent figures in the social and business world, and none of them afflicted with the slightest trace of fanaticism. The gathering can in no sense, save one, be compared with those of Mecca and the Hindu shrines, where fanaticism dominates everything else. The one point of resemblance is that the Christian Scientists are thoroughly in earnest and take joy in attesting their faith in the creed of the church of their choice, It is a faith based upon reason, and reached only through intelligent and unbiased study and comparison with other creeds.
A remarkable feature, perhaps the most remarkable, of the gathering was the generoisty of its adherents toward their church. The building they were in Boston to dedicate cost approximately two million dollars. Members were invited to contribute what they could to pay for it. The money was sent in such quantities that before the day set for the dedication arrived the fund was full to overflowing and the members were asked to quit giving.
There are many who have regarded Christian Science as heretical. Many others have regarded its adherents as inoffensive cranks, just a bit lacking in intelligence. A few have looked upon the belief and its practices as dangerous to society.
