The perennial relevance of "Chariots of Fire"

I re-watched Chariots of Fire the other day, and was struck by a few lines and exchanges that seem particularly timely and relevant:

HRH Edward, Prince of Wales: There are times when we are asked to make sacrifices in the name of that loyalty. And without them our allegiance is worthless. As I see it, for you, this is such a time.

Eric Liddell: Sir, God knows I love my country. But I can't make that sacrifice.

. . . .

Lord Cadogan: Hear, hear. In my day it was King first and God after.

Duke of Sutherland: Yes, and the War To End Wars bitterly proved your point!
