Patriotism: Vice or Virtue?

Guest Speaker: Mark Bernstein                      Lay Leader: Allan Pallay

George Bernard Shaw wrote, “Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all others because you were born in it.” Is patriotism just a selfish, xenophobic act or does it embody the values of pride, loyalty and sacrifice and so is something to be admired? Why is patriotism defined in so many different ways in our country, particularly in these difficult and troubling times? And what do Unitarian Universalists have to say about patriotism? Mark Bernstein has been a patriotic member of Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County for the past 22 years. A former Congregational Life staff member of the Central East Region of the UUA, he                                    regrets that he has only one life to give for his congregation.
