According to the 15 year old…
I asked Oz what the most patriotic song in America was. He says, without skipping a beat, Yankee Doodle Dandy. He’s right. He’s pretty cool.
It’s too bad that America doesn’t have a common enemy these days. We’ve turned on each other and it gets worse each 4th of July. While I see the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding Gay marriage rights as a good thing, I am disgusted at the verocity of which anyone with Christian values are now being attacked. We have entered a day and age where stating that you’re a Christian, which should be okay to say in America, will automatically label you as some backwoods anti-gay teabagging hate filled monger. For some reason, that makes me feel sad.
So here’s to our revolutionaries. The one’s who stood up to fight for a new nation. A free nation. One goal, many battles. A common enemy throughout, not each other. See, they didn’t have time for that. They needed each other to succeed. It seems so simple and yet, so impossible in today’s America.
Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience can both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.
