From the December 1906 issue of The Christian Science Journal

ANY forward movement, or one regarded as such by those participating in it, always meets with opposition more or less strenuous, according to its nature and the extent to which it seeks to overturn previously formed beliefs or ideas. In no field of knowledge or experience has this been found to a greater extent than in matters of religious belief and teaching, and in no other has the opposition to any change of or interference with preconceived ideas or beliefs and practices been more intolerant or vicious.
