Israel in Babylon: A Parable of the Game Played in Heaven

The Australian Rugby Union built a statue of pure gold that glistened, rainbow like, in the sun.  And the head of the ARU placed it in the centre of a green plain in the middle of Sydney that measured 120 metres by 70 metres.

And the head of the ARU instructed that when the Australian National Anthem was played all of the ARU community should bow down to the idol of gold that glistened, rainbow like, in the sun.

And Israel replied:
