              by Jim Rapp 

When I disparage politicians,
wrapped in flags
and carrying Bibles,
I mean no disrespect
to the flag;
certainly none to the Bible.

The flag, properly used,
symbolizes a people
joined in purpose;
likewise, rightly understood,
the Bible holds inspired Truth,
conveyed through mortal men.

True love for flag
allows it to fly, symbolic,
not of my American-ness,
but of the aspirations of all;
regardless of origin,
ideology or creed.

True Bible lovers –
as true lovers of every sort –
do not denigrate that they love
by making it an apologist
for their idolatrous beliefs
and adulterous deeds.
