The report of an address by the dean of the school of medicine of our state university misstates the facts regarding Christian Science and its Founder, Mary Baker Eddy. In the first place let it be understood that neither Christian Science nor Christian Scientists have any quarrel with the medical profession; most of us in our earlier years have had occasion to be grateful for the gentleness and kindness of the family physician and to appreciate his devotion to duty.

Indeed, as Christian Scientists we honor and respect all good and true men and women who have unselfishly labored in the cause of humanity, who have sought to relieve the distresses of the world in whatever form manifested and by whatever means or methods. This does not mean that we agree with them in their views and methods, but it does mean that we recognize and appreciate their earnest endeavors and sincerity of purpose,—certainly traits which Christian Scientists seek to cultivate, and which are not to be condemned. We therefore take no issue with the doctor as to the honor which should be accorded those of his profession whom he mentions, nor the amount of praise to which they may be entitled.

We'd love to hear from you!
