And then, when you're done with that, I want to know more about allegiance. "country first"? Where does that leave God? Are we creating an idol?
While I'm listening to the RNC right now (obviously), I think these questions apply to both parties (I was just too busy to blog last week--and this week I'm forcing myself to make the time because I'm beginning to go insane) and to our whole national life. And especially to our faith life--what does it do to us when we replace God with an idol? How is this related to the idea that some are less blessed? To other ways we view ourselves and our political and religious leaders?
Discuss. I'm going to finish Breaking Dawn so I can blog about the Twilight series...
