A reflection on "real American exceptionalism"This struck me as a good thought for an Independence Day post. From Henry Green, Real American exceptionalism Associated Baptist Press 06/29/2012:
History is a helpful instructor. While as citizens we should have a healthy pride for all the great accomplishments our nation has achieved, as Christians we must see American exceptionalism -- the idea that the U.S. is uniquely virtuous compared to other countries -- as antithetical to our global witness.A useful reminder that Christianity should not be linked to nationalist jingoism.
