NEITHER IS THE BIBLE APOLITICAL. Here is William Stringfellow in An Ethic for American Christians and Other Aliens in a Strange Land, 1973:
“Despite the habitual malpractice of translating biblical politics as the American story, there is also the odd and contradictory custom among many Americans to denounce the truth that the Bible is political…American experience as a nation--as well as biblical scholarship--discredits any attempted Americanization of biblical politics and confounds the notion that the Bible is apolitical.”
