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 2014-267: Discernment Watch: NRA Insurance

Lifetime NRA membership is cheap insurance.

My wife was watching a news program and she shared that some liberal politician, in a frantic attempt to run to the right for next week’s election, claimed that he was a life-time member of the National Rifle Association.

Any liberal can buy the card for insurance and pull it out like they are doing now.  You can support President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg for your term of office minus a month and pull out your card at the finish if you need it.  Like I said, it is cheap insurance.

Even Harry Reid has a high NRA rating.  He may even be an avid hunter.  I don’t know.  It is, however, part of the profile of elitists (Progressives, liberals, Democrats, Rinos, socialists, Communists). Liberals reserve large areas of life for their own use while denying the privilege to others.  Thus Diane Feinstein is reported to have a license to carry but wants to deny it to others.  The Sierra Club wants to keep you out of the forest so they can enjoy it undistracted by the dirty masses.  Al Gore wants you to have a small carbon footprint so he can take big strides.

Conservatives and people who believe in liberty, which are usually the same, believe that the good things of life should be available to anyone who wants to work for them.  Not for everyone, that is welfare.  Not for the few, that is liberalism.  For anyone who wants to work and plan.

That is one reason I am a conservative. 

So let them join the NRA.  The money will be well used.  But keep an eye on them.  They can’t be trusted with our future.
