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 2013-248: Cornerstone Considerations: CUSA, Insurrection

Have you noticed how the president seems to make comments that divide the nation?  I have seen titles of articles that say he is the most divisive president we have ever had but I don’t bother reading them because I assume they are opinion pieces based on questionable research.  But it matches what I see.  Why?  One reason that the president is deliberately stirring up race riots is to find an excuse to take over the country.  I don’t think it will work, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a desire of his heart.

If he can cause enough violence in the streets it will give him constitutional power to suspend our rights.  From Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution:
“The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety require it.”
All he has to do is declare that the “public safety” requires his being able to arrest the trouble makers.  Abraham Lincoln did it during the Civil War.  I think Wilson did it during World War I.  I am sure it was part of the justification that Roosevelt used to inter the Japanese during World War II.  The precedent is available.

Later you see another justification in Article 4, Section 4
“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened), against domestic violence.”
In addition to riots this could be one reason that he doesn’t want to secure the borders.  Call illegal immigration an invasion and you can take over Texas, Arizona and California. 

Of course it would be for our own protection.

I don’t think this is what the Founding Fathers envisioned.

  1. No, our founding fathers didn't envision it, but the New World Order certainly does, and Obama is just another useful idiot for them.

    1. I have always appreciated that term "useful idiot." The pain comes in seeing so many of them.

      Grace and peace.
