Golden heresy

From a poem by George Russell that I encountered as a hymn at the local Unitarian church, I offer this delicious and profound verse:
No blazoned banner we unfold—
One charge alone we give to youth,
Against the sceptred myth to hold
The golden heresy of truth.
What better legacy could we carry forward, from ancient skeptics and enlightenment humanists, through us, and on to our children: the golden heresy of truth.
