Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2011-175, Headlines: Limousines under Obama

I am not a fan of our current president.  I consider him to be the biggest disaster to our freedoms since FDR.  He would probably consider that a compliment.

However, why don’t we concentrate on real issues instead of nit-picking.  A case in point that I first picked up from the Drudge Report and later did a search for, is the report on the increase in the number of limousines in the federal government since Obama took over.  You can read a short version at Fox News.

If you read it carefully or other sites that carry the story you find that none of the numbers are secure and the build up may have started under George Bush. 

Let’s get real about something.  It is expensive to provide security for a president and government officials that may be the targets of crazies.  I do not begrudge them their armor plating.  No one is trying to shoot at me on a daily basis.  I am not even sure I care about their expensive state dinners.  Such is the price of doing business.  They are part of the rich elite.  They are heading the most powerful (?) country in the world.  They need to act like it.

Now if you want to talk about the erosion of our freedom with nutrition laws, light bulb laws, carbon dioxide laws...
