A Meditation on Faith: Fear of Authority

Is it not patently obvious that obedience, in other words, the “freedom” to obey, is no freedom at all?

How can the rejection of freedom be a virtue under any circumstance?

And so, I insult my humanity every time I allow the powers that be tell me the difference between right and wrong… and I have not just the right, but the moral responsibility to challenge the preachers and politicians… to question not only their pronouncements, but also their motives, and by what right they have ordained themselves.
