The need for Christian Scientists to be awake to the subtle manner in which attempts to secure legislation against them are being made, is well illustrated in the recent proceedings before the Kentucky legislature, and we cannot be too emphatic in warning our people to be on guard against such attempts. The policy generally pursued by those who heretofore have sought such legislation has been to incorporate into the laws regulating the practice of medicine some strained and arbitrary definition by which they hope to include every system of healing, and thus include the practice of Christian Science without specifically naming it. We do not mean to be uncharitable, but a reasonable explanation of this course seems to be that by adopting such a plan it is expected that the true intent of the proposed legislation will not be disclosed to Christian Scientists nor to the legislators who otherwise would protest against a manifest violation of individual liberty.
It would seem that in the instance referred to, the plan was successful up to a certain point, but suffered defeat in the end because both Christian Scientists and legislators finally became aware of the purpose of the bill.
