Respect

Recently I have happened to have come across writings about respect and religion. Respect is perhaps /the/ necessary pillar of religious dogma.

But respect changes nothing, there has to be a certain amount of disrespect in order to challenge the staus quo and force introspection and renewal. E.g. Jesus and Judaism, Martin Luther and the Catholic church, Malcolm X and the US establishment or even a teenager and her parents.

Respect disrespect.

Jesus himself still respects Judaism

Perhaps the Jewish establishment at the time then?

Jesus to me is a kinda Che Guevara rebellious figure, suppose that's what I was trying to get at...
