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 2013-232: Cornerstone Considerations: CUSA, the New Nobility

Two places the Constitution of the United States forbids the granting of titles of nobility.  The first is in Article 1, Section 9 the last clause.
“No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States:...”
The second refers to the states and is found in the next paragraph, Article 1, Section 10
“No state shall ... grant any title of nobility.”
Historically a title of nobility was something which said a person was better than others simply because of blood or royal decree.  The lower classes had to make way for you, bow to you and follow your orders.  You often were exempt from taxes and fees.  You wore special colors and materials.  You received preferential treatment.  You lived high and had to contribute nothing.

I submit that the welfare classes have become the new nobility.  They live off the sweat of the laboring classes and produce nothing.  They get preferential treatment.  They are becoming a burden on society and are very arrogant about their rights.  We coin phrases such as “welfare queens.” 

I submit that this is unconstitutional.
