I realized that I don't have this perspective on family religion. In my house, I was raised with a collection of venerated icons on the walls of the house, as I imagine that some families might put up small shrines to Saint Michael or Mary Mother of God. Except that in my house, the icons were selected from the radical pantheon: Mohandas K. Gandhi, Emma Goldman and Che Guevara; Bernice Johnson Reagon, Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger; Fanny Lou Hamer, Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Junior.
I'm lucky -- most people who find their way to this pantheon have to reject the family line, whether that be faith in government, religion, or sexism. I am blessed by being born into a family that already sees the way of engaged compassion as something to strive for.
