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 2012-193, Plow and Crown: A License to Hunt Deer

I was reading a post at Georges Grouse called “The Deer Look Awful.”  Take a look at what he has to say if you have not read it yet.

He questioned the motive of deer management and was so audacious as to suggest that poor people should be able to hunt without a license.  This got my mental juices flowing on one of my themes, the attempts of the elites to control the masses.

This goes back to medieval days.  In those times all of the land was owned by the king and his nobles.  The peasants were not allowed to hunt in the kings forest.  If you are familiar with the old movie about Robin Hood you might remember the feasting they did on “the king’s deer.”  That was probably as big a sin as appropriating the kings taxes.  The common folk were expected to go hungry while the deer ate their crops.  The nobles maintained a group of foresters who were to keep an eye on poachers and punish them.

When our ancestors first came to this new world did they need a permit to hunt?  I doubt it.  That is one of the reasons they came here.  Land could be owned by common people and the wild animals were there for whoever wanted to hunt them.  They had disagreements with the American Indian tribes but that was the same conflict that they had with each other.  It was survival, not permits in triplicate. 

Slowly but surely governments have been encroaching on what was once part of our liberty.  There are some obvious controls needed, such as hunting with a long range rifle next to a residential area but that is not what we are seeing.  From Georges comments and others I have read it also isn’t about managing the forest for the most yield.  That might be forgivable because we do have a lot of people. Again, that is not what this is really about.

The Control Freaks of the Elites want your liberty.  They are winning.  November is coming.

  1. I hadn't even thought of all that, but you're right on all counts.

    1. The battle continues, unfortunately we are currently losing. But that is okay. I read the Book and I know who wins.

      Grace and peace.
