Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

Wright Love

(Credit: Politirazzi)

George Stephanopoulos asked Obama, “Do you think Rev. Wright loves America as much as you do?”

What an offensive question! That would’ve been my response. Why do people assume love and patriotism is only properly expressed by blindly supporting and defending a country no matter its wrongs and atrocities? I love America. I am patriotic. But this country has done great harm to it’s citizens and enemies on many occasions. Proverbs 13:24 says, He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. Correction is an expression of love. Someone pointing out a couple of America’s wrongs does not make him unpatriotic. I’m sure some of you may think differently.
