July 4th – with God on their side?


Independence day (and as it turns out memorably for me at least my wedding anniversary!) I include this link which may I say I find disturbing. Even revolting.  But then I'm not American. And it may be that all shows of patriotic fervour where God is co-opted as cheerleader are disturbing to whoever is not a member of that tribe. I don't grudge America the right to exist but I don't agree with the notion that this involves special or unique privileges.

The takeout for me is that if you one of those fortunate human beings blessed with a happy life. Be very careful before you use the language of rights and divine endorsement. We've all done it. It ain't necessarily so.
