BPR Quote of the Day: Three Kinds of Patriots

“There are three kinds of patriots, two bad, one good. The bad ones are the uncritical lovers and the loveless critics. Good patriots carry on a lover’s quarrel with their country, a reflection of God’s lover’s quarrel with all the world.”

Rev. William Sloane Coffin, Jr.

  1. In my book I distinguish only two kinds of patriots. One says “my country right or wrong.” The other says, My country, please do right and no wrong.”
