I get it!
Well I certainly agree with you on being pulled about patriotism. I applaud you for saying it out loud because many will shake their head at you perhaps. But I get it. As a Christian I have trouble saying "God bless America" because it sounds elitist and I really think to myself "God bless this world".... all of it. God created it ALL! I have "war issues" too because as a Christian I strive for peace above all else. I believe God commanded us to love one another, and although I know there is a bad "force" (call it the devil or our own sinful ways) in the world, we are not to kill as easily as we nations/people seem to do. I think God is disappointed in us. I also dislike the crazy rush in December... and the way Americans have taken Christmas and turned it upside down. I have talked about it in my posts too.
