"Kindly permit me to call attention to a misleading..."

Daily News

Kindly permit me to call attention to a misleading statement with reference to Christian Science in “Wanderings,” published in the Daily News of recent date. Noting the evidence of a plague in a city to be visited on a trip to Mandalay, the author writes: “We decided just to play that we were Christian Scientists and forget it.” May I submit that a Christian Scientist does not merely “forget” a plague? While it requires correct understanding to demonstrate its teachings, the modus operandi of Christian Science practice does not involve pretense, nor does it include the error of forgetting. Many Christian Scientists bear witness to the fact that their religion furnishes immunity from the ravages of epidemics or so-called communicable diseases. I am not in the least surprised to learn that the writer found, as she states, that “playing with Christian Science had really been of little avail.” Under the circumstances, as related in the article under consideration, it could avail but little.
