RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN THE UNITED STATES

From the January 1918 issue of The Christian Science Journal


As the national life of the United States is illustrating an advanced idea of democracy to all the world, it should be interesting to consider what the status of individual rights is in a land wherein the people are nominally self-governing. With all the progress in liberty of thought and action which has been realized in these states, it can hardly be said that the liberty of choice which true democracy guarantees is as yet thoroughly inviolate in matters pertaining to religion and medicine.
