As a WW II sailor I was both delighted and amused that you printed "A war historian's spiritual persepective" in the December 17 issue.

Delighted because Jerry Collester is so clear on war as it seems to affect us and then quotes Mary Baker Eddy to show that his points are obviously in line with her thinking and writings concerning war.

Amused because you felt you had to print a disclaimer at the end that seems to indicate that this might not be an accepted Christian Science view. And then perhaps for balance you printed a pacifist's view which was written by a Jewish/Buddhist adherent (and of course with no quotes from Mrs. Eddy). Then since this one had no disclaimer at the end the readers would assume that this article is accepted as the Christian Science viewpoint.
