Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication


The Oklahoma editors and publishers have shown the greatest consideration in handling objectionable reports and comments dealing with Christian Science, Christian Scientists, and our Leader. The principal attack through the press was that of an editor who delivered an address before the guests attending the annual clinic dinner of the Oklahoma City Clinical Society. The statements made were reported in one of the leading papers after considerable deletion.

The editor of the paper gave your Committee a column and a half in which to reply defending Mrs. Eddy and Christian Science in general, affording us an opportunity to cover in a very comprehensive manner the misstatements made. An interesting experience in connection with this attack developed a few nights later. One of the guests at the clinic dinner decided to ascertain firsthand if any part of the statements made were true. Seeing a Christian Science lecture announced, he attended the lecture. He expressed his appreciation for the good received, thoroughly convinced that the attack was unjust and unwarranted—again proving the words of the immortal Lincoln, "Truth is generally the best vindication against slander."
