My boss was all atwitter today with Bev Perdue, the Governor of North Carolina, stopping by our homeless shelter to have a quick look. My boss is a politician, I am not. I don’t remember people’s names, I don’t like playing favorites, and I mostly believe that Jesus’ actions were on the socialist edge. So I don’t fit well in the political scene. In fact, I can’t join the Rotary Club because I won’t pledge allegiance to a flag. Not the US flag, not even the Episcopal flag.
I like my country, don’t get me wrong. I’ve travelled enough to have seen how easy we have it here. But for me it is God before country. Sometimes I think I should become a Quaker, and for all I know I may end up there. I do like oatmeal!
