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 2013-224: Links: Police Officers and Gun Control

One of the lies we often hear from the media and government is that police officers are in favor of more gun control.  I have often read that this is not true.  The political heads and leaders in left wing organizations with the name “Police” in their title are in favor of gun control, but not the cop on the street. 

I came across a statement to this effect by Massad Ayoob in Backwoods Home Magazine.

His discussion of this is in sections early in the article entitled “The View from the Street” and “Street Reality.”  Later on he explains why Police Chiefs come across more into regulation and sheriffs are more into the Second Amendment. 

Don’t take my word for it.  Check it out yourself.
