Jewish Post

I have read in your recent issue what purports to be a reprint containing reference to a supposed "outburst of Christian Scientists against Judaism." This committee is in a position to say that there is no outburst of the kind mentioned. There are those formerly connected with the Christian Science organization who have taken it upon themselves to assault the religious beliefs of other people. Loyal Christian Scientists, however, even while differing with the religious beliefs of other persons, do not resort to abuse, misrepresentation, or vilification. On the contrary, they heed the counsel which their Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, had given them in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 444), in the following words: "Students are advised by the author to be charitable and kind, not only towards differing forms of religion and medicine, but to those who hold these differing opinions."

Good will, cooperation, healing, and true manhood are among the desires inspired by the teachings of Christian Science; and its students make no distinction on account of race, doctrine, or creed. Further, this Science is demonstrable, capable of proof in every minute detail, and he who honestly tries to prove it will find only good in it and no harm. Students of Christian Science heartily agree with the sentiments of Rabbi E. F. Magnin, uttered when preaching at Temple B' nai B'rith recently—as recently—as reported in the Los Angeles Times. In speaking of the efforts of the better class of preachers of all denominations he said, "I have found [them] stressing cooperation between all religious groups, kinder thoughts, better standards of living, and universal peace."
