“I will never understand…”

I agree, but actually would expand the thought to include any one (and especially white evangelicals) who claims to follow Jesus and yet ignores those in greatest need. The Gospels are not just clear on this point, but explicit.

my dirt is better than your dirt

Educated and rational folks need to remember this, especially in the coming days. The United States is a wonderful and blessed country. We all know that.

But we need to always remember that “God so loved the world…” Our nation, as blessed as it is, is no closer to God’s heart than any other.

There is a real likelyhood over the next couple of years that our leaders are going to attempt to stir up in us a sense of nationalism that will be both ugly and dangerous. When that happens we need to fight against a false patriotism and national pride that promotes our dirt is better that other peoples.
