Scioto Gazette

In your October 17 issue you printed an item by a doctor. In describing an interest in Christian Science on the part of orthodox church members as a flight from the church, the doctor misleads your readers, and I request the opportunity to correct such an impression.

This doctor catalogues Christian Science as "cultism" and as "a by-product of this chaotic age." Christian Science was discovered by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866 and, long before the world war, was established as a religion in the United States and around the world. Thousands of people in the present "chaotic age" find Christian Science a source of cheer and comfort and an active agent in the warfare to bring the world back to a state of sanity. A religious movement which has given the world a sane and sound daily newspaper in The Christian Science Monitor can hardly be designated as a "cult" springing from chaotic conditions.

We'd love to hear from you!
