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 2013-140: Headline: Homosexuality and the Scouts, the Power of Nag

The gay lobby and the forces that are out to destroy the foundations of this country will not give up on destroying the Boy Scouts as we know them.  Look again at the statement I looked at last time from the Reuter's article.
“If the resolution is approved, ‘no youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone,’ Deron Smith, the organization's spokesman, told Reuters.

But the policy is not changed for adults, the group said, and an internal document obtained by Reuters says that when youth members become adults, they ‘must meet the requirements of our adult standards’ to remain in the group.”
The long term plan is being laid out.  If they can get the children accepted now, they know that the children will grow up.  When the eagle scout decides that the next step is to become a scout master, how can you deny him, after all he has been a good scout.  This is really pretty basic.  You destroy from infiltration, from the inside.  After all, if he was good enough to be an eagle scout, why isn’t he good enough to be a scoutmaster.

It is logic.  It is the next step.  The problem is that the first step was wrong.  If a train gets on the wrong track there is little chance that it will arrive at the proper destination.

The left knows this.  The conservative voices make the mistake of assuming that there are no hidden motives or long term goals.

Nagging works because people get tired of it, not because it is right.
