New York (N. Y.) American
The report from the judiciary committee to the Assembly, of the Thorn bill legitimatizing the practice of Christian Science in New York, is a first step in the right direction.
There are, as is generally known, hundreds of Christian Science practitioners in New York state today ministering to the needs of several hundred thousand people who hold that faith. Their position before the law regulating the practice of medicine is, however, ill defined, and they practise under toleration until their exact status shall be fixed, either bu new legislation or by the final interpretation of the existing law by a court of last resort.
The numbers and standing in their home communities of the believers in Christian Science today exclude the argument that their cardinal precept of healing disease without material means is to be discarded as a mere vagary. The enormous volume of testimony to the efficacy of their method of treatment condemns the state that would attempt to outlaw its practitioners.
