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 2014-148: Headlines: How Would You Feel?

As I watch the march of Islam back into Iraq my heart goes out, not to the Iraqi people being conquered, but to the American families who lost loved ones in the successful attempt to allow these people to live in security and freedom.  It was successful.  Face it all you Bush haters.  The war was won thanks to the determination of George Bush and the sacrifice of American soldiers.  All the Iraqi’s had to do was man-up and hold on to it.

They have not done so.  It continues to be true that you can’t win someone’s freedom for them. 

I grant you the abandonment of the Obama regime has been a major contributor.  Announcing when you are pulling out and adopting the old, failed Rules of Engagement are sure ingredients for failure.

I believe that American soldiers went to Iraq to assure our security and give the people of that country a chance to establish responsible government and personal liberty.  Both goals were achieved.  We can be proud of that but if I had lost a son in that effort I would be filled with rage now as our current Wimp-in-Chief throws it all away because in his heart he hates what America has been.

Will Iraq survive for two years until we have a change in leadership?  I have my doubts.  It will depend on the citizens of Iraq at this point.  Do they want to submit to murderous thugs or will they fight for their freedom?  Will we survive for two years until the Executive Order president is forced to step down?  Sure, but we don’t know how much more damage he will cause. 

Elections have consequences.  If you voted for Obama the first time you obviously were not paying attention to who he was and what he said.  If you voted for him a second time you are either a fool or are into race-baiting politics.

I think an ingredient for the survival of our republic will be how many of the incumbents are voted out in the next election.

  1. Anyone who voted for him a second time just plain has the devil in them.

    1. Am I to assume that they don't have the kool aide in your area or have you just not been drinking it?

      Grace and peace.
