What comes first to you God or Country?  

I have no intention of debating your choice and hope others recognize that your choice doesn't make you less faithful or less patriotic and will respect the answers provided. 

I will do a poll, but I'm not included "other" and I'm not including an option for atheists.  You can complain in the comments but I won't change the poll.  

ETA: the question has nothing to do with separation of church and state or wanting laws based on your religious beliefs.  It is simply what comes first in your heart/allegiance God or Country.

That's really hard to say. If I had an example, I'd probably be able to answer more accurately. I would break the law in an instant to practice my religion (which would put God in front of Country), but I see myself going to war for my country before religion any day.

I may donate more money to God (church) before I donate it to taxes (country).

In this secular nation, I advocate for laws that follow what's best for our country (gay rights) vs. what my religion says (country before faith).

So yeah.

 I really can't answer this honestly without insulting too many people, so I think I'll sit back and hold my tongue this time. Good post though. :)

Every Christian I know places God before anything, including family.

As the country is a part of what I see as god I cannot seperate the two.

Interesting question.

God has always come first with me but..........my country is indeed important.  

But when it comes to every one, as a whole, I will always support laws that encompass every one, does not make the point of exclusion and respect areas such as Separation of Church and State.  

While God may come first in my heart, I do not want this country run with that same thought in mind.  If that makes any sense.

I'll openly admit I'm not patriotic. If I have to answer, country comes first because I question the existence of God.
