"Like This": On Spirituality and Defiance
A good, healthy spirituality teaches us how to be defiant.
In fact, in all religious traditions, defying evil, injustice, and tyrants... what Saint Paul called 'the principalities and powers'... is a major theme.
It's funny that I get chastised so much for being defiant by the religious when my inspiration comes from most biblical characters.
I've discovered that only those interested in keeping or being subservient to power oppose defiance.
In that is a great lesson!
