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 2013-50: Loyal or Gullible?

How loyal is the loyal opposition? 

One of the themes that keeps being mouthed in politics is that we may disagree but we are all Americans.  When a Democratic senator smears American marines as murderers with no evidence but the word of the enemy the first words out of everyone’s mouth seems to be, “We don’t doubt his patriotism...”  I do.  It seems that many people in power are so elitist that they are quite willing to destroy the country for their own personal aggrandizement. 

It is time for the Loyal Opposition to realize that the best way to be genuinely loyal is to be adamantly opposition.  While it is true that half a loaf is better than none, it does not follow that half a lie is better than none.  While I may be willing to die to defend your right to disagree with me, I should not be willing to die to defend evil.

Evil exists.  It is not always the same as just being wrong but it exists.  Just because someone believes they are right does not make them righteous.  Just because the Democrats who filibustered the Civil Rights Bills of the past genuinely believed that the black race was inferior does not mean they should be exonerated.

It is time for those who claim to be conservatives stand up for what is best for the country and, by extension, the world.  It is time to make hard choices and vote for what is right even if we know that the media will lie and distort what is happening.

At the same time those of us who vote and hope need to support those willing to take the hard road and roast those who compromise because they have forgotten why they were elected.

We are loyal to the Constitution.  We must oppose the elites of socialism.

  1. It should never have been otherwise.

    1. You know that. I know that. But we are not in the ruling class.

      Grace and peace
