For God so Loved… America?

Vicky and I visited a well-known Christian bookstore recently. After purchasing the things we needed, our unofficial (but usual) game of “who-can-find-the-Christian-thing-that-will-make-us-laugh-and-weep-simultaneously” began.  I found a book I was fairly confident would win, but when I heard Vicky whisper my name, I knew the game was over.  She stood next to a display case of drinking glasses with the holy grail of patriotic-Christian irony in her hand.

*In case you are hard of seeing or have a difficult time believing what you see… yes, that is an ellipsis after “For God so Loved”
