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 2014-91: The Problem Is Not Immigration, part 2 of 2

Again, the problem is not immigration.  The problem is educators, judges and the media.

The problem is what we do with immigrants once they arrive.  We put them in schools that are run by administrators who hate what America represents.  They reject the idea of unbridled freedom and people who are free to make their own choices.  The entire concept of mandatory education and criminal proceedings for those who refuse is an example of this.  They want a socialist state where everyone has equal outcomes and they don’t care how many bright lives are dimmed to make us all the same watts.  They teach multiculturalism and are turning a melting pot with a few chunks of Brussel sprouts into a tribal cacophony of liver, rutabaga, turnips and lima beans.  They want a society that can only be controlled by the point of a gun and they want all the guns.

We have courts that define justice as the latest trend of the Progressive (Democrat, socialist, communist, tyrant, leftist) intellectuals.  Thus a homosexual judge can declare that defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman is against the Constitution.  Thus we have a supreme court that takes away our property rights at the whim of a city council.  We have a supreme court that says we can be required to buy health insurance.  We have unelected regulatory agencies limiting and contorting our lives with the collusion of the courts.  We have courts saying that illegal aliens can practice law and are to be awarded all the rewards of citizenship. 

We have people in the media who decide what to tell the public.  It is done for their own good of course.  It is strange that all of their decisions are in agreement with the Progressive agenda.

So the problem is not immigration.  People come here with a dream.  They come because they see more hope and opportunity in this country than in the one they left.  If we nurture that dream and let them loose they will become Americans, their children will become assimilated and their grandchildren will not speak their heritage language.  They will become a part of the idea of America instead of a part of the tribe that hates the guy who ties his turban different or takes his shoes off when he goes into the house.

Look at your coins.  They say e pluribus unum.  Out of many, one.
