Religious liberty, a basic tenent of our land, implies freedom from misrepresentation and disparagement, though apparently there are those who fail to comprehend or observe the spirit of the constitutional right here posited.

A case in point is the recent radiocast of a sermon by a religious organization. The sermon purported to be an an in part, of the teachings of Christian Science (though it failed utterly to be such in important particulars), and asserted an influence by Christian Science that is wholly at variance with the truth.

To allege that those who have become adherents to the teachings of Christian Science have done so through the machinations of the evil one is to assert something that is patently absurd; and such a statement ill becomes one who claims for himself the right to be known as Christian, but who denies that equal right to others, however "kindly" the intent. Such a declaration betrays at once an inexcusable ignorance of Christian Science and a lack of acquaintance with Christian Scientists.
