If I joined a cult

I'm reading this book about Father Divine, a celebrity preacher in the twenties and into the Depression. His serious followers were expected to leave all aspects of their former lives behind, and as part of that would take on new "spiritual names." Some of these were biblical, like Queen Esther, and a lot of the others were things like Heavenly Rest and Humility Consolation.

I immediately knew what my name would be: Righteous Indignation.
