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 2014-179: The Fix Is In

In regard to my previous post I am wondering if the judicial system has any way to police their own house.

If you read the article at the Washington Post about Judge Christopher Cooper you begin to wonder if there are any judges being appointed at this point that are anything but political hacks.  Granted, he has not even entered the courtroom as a judge yet, but the writing is on the wall.

Look at the political connections:
A brand new judge, not on the bench yet, is assigned a massive case that could make the administration look bad.
His wife worked for Eric Holder.
His wife supervised the prosecutor in the case.
His college room mate and close friend is the brother of Susan Rice who was a front for the president on the Benghazi scandal.
He helped defend Saudi officials sued by families of 911 victims.
Should I expect corruption?  Do you expect to smell garlic at an Italian restaurant?

You can’t make this stuff up.  It reads like a spy novel.  If I were reading a book that had these plot lines I would put it down because it was too implausible.  Yet this is where our government is going.  This is the kind of person nominated by our president and approved by our Senate.

Maybe it is time to get the courts to deal with the corruption in their own ranks.  How am I, as a common citizen supposed to have any respect for the courts?  How am I to sit on a jury and listen to the judge tell me he will tell me how to interpret the law?  Really?  Next time I will ask the judge if he is an Obama appointee.  That should get me thrown off the jury or a contempt citation.

Is it possible to impeach a judge before he is sworn in?  How do you get congress to impeach someone that they just approved? 

America is the last hope.  Where can we run from here?

Elections matter.
