Christian Science, like almost every religious belief...
Jackson (Miss.) News
Christian Science, like almost every religious belief that has sprung up in this world, has thrived under persecution. Men have ever been intolerant in regard to religion. Even in the old pagan days, before the Son of Man shed the light of his life on the world, there was orthodoxy and heterodoxy among the pagans, just as there is to-day. In the blazing sun of the twentieth century no one is drawn and quartered, or burned at the stake for his religious belief, but the world has a way of letting one know that it does not approve of one's belief if it is not strictly orthodox.
This writer is not a follower of Mrs. Eddy, but sees no reason why she and those who believe with her should not be permitted to enjoy their religion in their own way. Those who have embraced the faith seem to enjoy their religion as much as the ordinary person, and they take it into every-day life with them, living in an upright, honorable, and consistent manner. ...
Just as much now as in the days of old we need religious tolerance, and while there are creeds and cults our judgment does not approve, yet we are under obligation to accord to others the same privilege in regard to their religious beliefs that we take for ourselves. Christian Science is an impelling force with thousands of followers all over the world, and there is no reason why the rest of the universe should not allow them the enjoyment of their belief free from sneers and scoffing. Mrs. Eddy, according to orthodox belief, is all wrong in the scheme of religion she has evolved, but her recent examination by a committee of celebrated alienists shows that she is a remarkable personage, and those who believe in the square deal will be glad that she has triumphed over her enemies in such a signal way.
