What does everyone think of a church having Patriotic Sunday? The church my family previously attended has one every year. Here's the banner from their website for this year: They would have a presentation of the flag (and there are already several US and state flags in the church) by veterans, a tribute to the veterans, sing patriotic songs--the National Anthem, God Bless America, Onward Christian Soldiers, etc., and then a sermon about how the U.S. founded was on Christian principles and ideals. How God is on our side, democracy is the best, other systems of government are inferior, etc. etc. At times, IMO, it borders on worship. Given the recent ruling by SCOTUS on SS marriage, along with the millions of babies aborted each year, plus the filth and violence (among other things) that is in the culture, what exactly is there to celebrate? I can understand an acknowledgement of our veterans, preferably on Memorial Day weekend or the Sunday around Veteran's Day, but this full blown tribute to the U.S.A. in this day and age I feel is misplaced. Thoughts?
