Correction to conservative story Reply

A story in the Nov./Dec. 1851 Chronicle (Concerned conservatives contest criticism) contained a few inaccuracies. First, Christa Case Bryant, the speaker featured in the story, lived in Jerusalem for three years, and not six years in Palestine as the story reported. Second, Bryant was already an employee of the Christian Science Monitor during the 2016 Presidential Election, at which time she began working for the CSM’s National News department. Third, the story reports a gun shop in America sold four weapons in one week which were used to commit suicide, when in fact the number of weapons/suicides was three. We apologize for these errors.
