Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication for the Year Ended September 30, 1927
The editors of our state are becoming more and more careful to keep from the columns of their publications unjust remarks about any religion. One of the largest daily newspapers printed a detailed account of plans for church building in Columbia, and later commented editorially upon the handsome stone structure which was being built by Christian Scientists of that city. This church, which is built of native granite, will soon be ready for occupancy. It is built on the lot owned by First Church of Christ, Scientist, where a small wooden building formerly stood.
The seventy-seventh session of the General Assembly convened in Columbia on the eleventh of January, 1927. This session was a most intersting one to Christian Scientists, because of the passage of a bill, sponsored by them, which provided for Christian Science treatment for the children of parents and guardians who desire it. This bill (House No. 721) was designed to defeat compulsory "medical treatment" for children. After the words "medical treatment" in a former bill, the following amendement was added: "or other modes of treatment as recognized under Section 2400 of 1922, Code of Laws of South Carolina." The section referred to in the above is embodied in the Medical Practice Act, enacted in 1920, which contains the following amendment: Provided, "that nothing herein contained shall apply to those who practice the religious tenets of their church without pretending a knowledge of medicine or surgery and provided that the laws, rules and regulations relating to contagious disease are not violated."
