Spirituality and Defiance
Here we see Jesus teaching a woman how to give the finger.
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.
Only those interested in keeping power oppose defiance.
Unless it's defying logic or love.
(Disclaimer: When I speak of spirituality, I don't necessarily invoke a divinity. To me, spirituality is about the inner life of a person, with or without reference to a divine being or the supernatural.)
