Plain in the city

A plain Quaker folk singer with a Juris Doctorate in his back pocket, salt in his blood, and a set of currach oars in the closet, Ulleann Pipes under his arm, guitar on his back, Anglo Irish baggage, wandering through New York City ... in constant amaze. Statement of Faithfulness. As a member of the Quaker Bloggers Ad Hoc Committee I affirm that I will be faithful to the Book of Discipline of my Meeting 15th Street Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.

Christian Patriotism vs. "Christian" Patriots...

Christian Patriotism vs. Christian Patriots...

On the site about which I wrote, it appears that they are advocating Christian Patriotism rather than the "Christian" Patriot Movement, which I hope is the case. I am less than comfortable with the outward expression of patriotism in the same way I am less than comfortable with outward showing of religious effect which Quakers referred to in the past as parroting. But, I am thankful that it seems that the plain clothes web site is not associated with "Christian" terrorism -- just a little flag waving.

(Thank'ee Amanda for careful reading!)
