CRN has been warning of the patriotic idolatry that seemingly is consuming America, especially during this election season. As one example, last month Erin Benziger of Do Not Be Surprised shared some concerns surrounding the ‘America for Jesus’ rally that was held from 28–29 September. Now that this event has concluded, Christian News Network offers a balanced report of what took place, and more interestingly, relates some of the concerns that were expressed about ‘America for Jesus.’ The article begins:
