    Not at all! It's a funny story: I really started learning about the Covenanters more along my journey of researching family history (of my husband, not me) and it coincided with our own reformation in which we learned a lot about church history. So the more I read about the history that made the existence of my husband possible (his great 10x grandfather is John Waddell, one of those accused of Archbishop Sharp's murder after Bothwell Bridge), I couldn't help but say one day working on a family line, "Wow, I think I'm a Covenanter."

    Of course, I'd be the first out of probably thousands of years of paganism and Catholicism...

    But I see how much their zeal and "oomph" for lack of a better word can be just the thing to inspire the church today in her complacency to culture.

    That's how one should appropriate the Covenatner tradition. The danger is that there are numerous schisms within it because it's not always clear which Covenanter strain is most faithful to the Solemn League and Covenant.

    I would urge everyone to go back to the historic Bellamy Salute instead of that modern innovation. For those unfamiliar with it, here's the Wikipedia article with pictures. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellamy_salute

    Last time I was in rural Mexico (obviously many years ago, since I survived the experience) we went by a remote school at the beginning of the day, and the students were gathered around the pole, so saluting the Mexican flag.

    Dualism is also found in Hermeticism.
