Look what the Statue of Liberty is up to!

Some might say this is between the USA and Mexico. But I’ve heard Canada mentioned a few times too.

My wife’s American. Our 3 children are dual. We live in Canada not far from the U.S. wall. I mean border.

  1. Yeah cause those Canadians are a troublesome lot. Just look at what they are like with ice hockey 😉

  2. I lean towards our churches having a system that ultimately makes them inward facing, then creating an in-group, then their own language and world view. Finally, the system would build a wall from which brave knights will charge out to fight dragons – that is, selected easy targets of the out-group.

    In the midst of the us-versus-them, with God on our side, the church membership grows… until everyone tires of the war, and the next generation abandons the church system in droves… saying “what does this have to do with Jesus?”

    May I offer that you could replace the Statue picture with one of the American Jesus?

  3. Caryn,

    American Jesus, or the temple in Jesus’ time, Christianity in the times of the Roman Empire post the conversion of Constantine, the Crusades in the middle ages, the British Empire oh and any presidential candidate claiming they are a Christian and being vociferous about bombing foreign countries that don’t comply with American hegemony perhaps.
