Iconic Polarization

...The trouble with sharp, polarizing moments is that they become iconic. Like martyrdoms ancient and modern, and indeed like civil wars, they generate loyalties and counter loyalties: you must now take such-and-such a line, because otherwise you're a traitor.
-- N. T. Wright, Surprised By Scripture [New York, NY: HarperCollins, 2014], p. 5
