The Thorn bill, legitimatizing the practice of Christian Science...
New York (N. Y.) American
The Thorn bill, legitimatizing the practice of Christian Science healing in New York state, now before the judiciary committee of the Assembly, should be reported by that committee and passed. Twenty-five states of the Union now recognize Christian Science, either by name or implication, as a legitimate method of combating illness. New York stands almost alone in subjecting its practitioners to the persecutions of medical societies taking advantage of a badly worded statute.
The United States government, in executive orders affecting the territories, especially recognizes the right of people to seek and practitioners to offer aid for physical ills by other than material means. The Canal Zone, which we offer to the world as the most perfect example of sanitation ever produced, is governed by a sanitary code from which this is an extract:—
"Provided, That nothing in this order shall be construed to prohibit the practice of the religious tenets of any church in the ministration of the sick and suffering by mental or spiritual means without the use of any drug or material remedy, whether gratuitously or for compensation, provided that such sanitary laws, orders, rules, and regulations as now are, or hereafter may be, in force in said Canal Zone are complied with."
