Michael J. Gorman quote ("Reading Revelation Responsibly")

According to Revelation, in the church's worship we should honor
and remember prophets and martyrs, not veterans and fallen warriors;
faithful witnesses, not loyal patriots;
the One who was slain to secure our freedom, not the ones
who killed and were killed to preserve (so it is claimed) our freedom.
That this self-evident truth about worship seems so odd, so radical,
simply demonstrates how comfortable the church has become
in bed with the beast.
