Portland (Ore.) Journal

We do not all agree with the beliefs of Christian Science, but all of us who are in harmany with the spirit of American institutions are going to accord adherents of the cult the liberty of conscience. Who among us is bigot enough to draw his skirts about him and insist that his creed is the correct one and all others wrong? Once, there was refusal to accept even Jesus Christ, and he was spurned. There was a day when followers of Christ were stoned and burned for their beliefs. But since then Christendom has moved, and the great moral lesson that has come down through the ages is that it is wise as well as Christlike to be tolerant of the religious beliefs of others.
