God AND Country

I am not trying to cause any trouble, but I am willing to ask some uncomfortable questions.  In this instance I am very thankful for the country I live in and the freedoms I enjoy.  I also realize the great sacrifice that many people have made to protect those freedoms.

That being said, I know that most pastors would be deeply opposed to adding anything to God.  I can hear a sermon on single-mindedness that has an application something like this:  “You cannot love both God AND _______________ (insert particular idol here)”… money, sports, success, comfort, etc…

Why is it okay to put “country” in that blank?  Is it okay?
