Finish the sentence: Traditionalism is ….
Here is my attempts (trying to cover quite a few religious traditions and seeing the term as primarily derogative) that are not all serious:
- …. a worldview where the perceived defined self-identity of a community is being changed by shifting ways of expressing and interpreting that same self-identity.
- …. an attitude defined by ‘new’ bad, ‘old’ good.
- …. old people who hanker for the good old days.
- …. what the religious leaders did and taught when I was growing up.
- …. what I say it is so just leave me alone.
- …. for those who cover up their ignorance with a religious reason.
Further, is biblicism and fundamentalism a form of Protestant traditionalism??
