IC's Friday QOTD

Gee. And I always thought Scripture said God First.

(p.s. I'm an equal opportunity offender in American politics. See my snark on Obama here. Now let's all go read Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship and pray that novena, shall we?)

Well, God is first, but he's not running for public office. Being Supreme Monarch of the Universe, he doesn't need to be re-elected every term.

I suppose at the Dem Natl Con, they had signs reading "Classical Music First." NPR listeners, you know.

I assume they mean "My" country first, rather than "Country First, Cty Second or Third."

I don't know, Allen. Between Change you can believe in and Country First, the language is a shade close to idolatry for me.

But I love--
"I suppose at the Dem Natl Con, they had signs reading "Classical Music First." NPR listeners, you know."

Ha! Thanks!

The DNC had God first signs. Problem was they mispelled God.
O B A M A.

Allen's Brain said...

Ah! Well, you know... "Obama" is an anagram for "A Moab"...

Just a warning from your friendly neighborhood wacko prophet of doom.

Well, at least one didn't have a temple, religious like appeal to its stage.

Country First sounds like a mortgage company to me.

Bob Underhill said...

There is no such thing as country in God's eye. Patriotism is a test of faith. You're either for God or against Him -- "Country First" is a slogan for those who are clearly against Him.

We have to fight for God and only his beloved children.

Was only reading your comments with no intention of posting one myself, but I thought I'd let you know that the word verification is:


..and I'm not even playin.

I wonder if that's anything like an iPod.

Theological reasons aside, I'm not fond of the slogan. I'm a human being first, a husband/father second, and an American third.
