IIRC, CSM has been a respected and fairly even-handed news journal for decades. I'm not aware of any anti-science/anti-medicine attitude.

I don't want to assume anything, but are you just having a kneejerk reaction to the word "Christian?" Or is there something about CSM I haven't heard?

No jerking. I completely agree with your assessment. I had assumed they were associated with Christian Science. Totally different and hence the confusion.

Yes, he must be having a knee-jerk reaction to the word "Christian" because everybody knows Lutherans never do real science or medicine.

Or.... maybe he's legitimately surprised that a Church with as manifestly kooky believes as the Christian Scientists (hint: cornerstone belief is that sickness is an illusion that can be dispelled by prayer alone) would have a good newspaper.

No, you were right.  Same group.

Church of Jesus Christ, Scientist is the same group as the Christian Scientists.  Their newspaper is the Christian Science Monitor.

Thanks.
I was wondering if that was putting a good face on their derp. Now I feel dirty for liking their articles.
Anyhow, hurray for the salmon! They're tasty :)

Nah, you don't have to feel dirty for liking their articles.  Brimed03 is right, the Christian Science Monitor is a generally well-respected publication.  As far as I know, it isn't a propaganda arm for the Church itself.  They seem to feel that maintaining the journalistic integrity of the periodical reflects well on the church.

/In this day and age there's nothing wrong with being surprised that organizations can behave with that kind of maturity.

I fully support this work. Not just for the environmental benefits. Salmon is my favorite meat, by far.
