Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication

It is with pleasure that the Committee reports continued friendliness with all editors of newspapers throughout the state. Only two items appeared in the columns of the press that needed correction; one was an article dealing largely with passages quoted from a book, which had apparently been taken from a London paper and reprinted in the Labor paper in Hobart. The other was a reference to Christian Science by a minister who linked it with Mohammedanism. There was no difficulty in arranging for the publishing of a correction in both cases. In one or two cases jocular remarks with respect to the healings wrought by means of Christian Science were made in papers, which it was deemed best to ignore.

Newspapers continue to print excerpts of the Lesson-Sermon regularly. Several articles taken from The Christian Science Monitor were published and, in most cases, due acknowledgment was made.

While there still appears to be strong opposition to Christian Science from some clergymen, we know that this arises very largely from wrong concepts of the teaching. However, with the advance of time, these wrong concepts are being broken down, and we have heard of a few appreciative remarks from the pulpit as to the healing work of Christian Science.
