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 2015-29: Headlines: Two Strikes

Two stories have been in the news, if you are paying attention.

First we have the President of the United States announcing he is not open to meet with the leader of our only real ally in the Middle East because President Obama feels slighted.  Israeli Prime Minister, Bibi Netanyahu, has been invited to address congress.  He accepted.  Obama and the state department were out of the loop.  Now they are getting nasty.  They say it is against policy to meet with leaders of nations who have pending elections.  Evidently this policy is ignored when it is convenient.  Since Netanyahu does not jump through Obama’s hoops he is to be chastised.

At the same time our state department has hosted a meeting with official delegates of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Muslim Brotherhood is an organization that hates the United States with a passion and is a big backer of terrorism.  They used this meeting to build their prestige and gain visiblity on the world stage.  After all, if the state department of the United States of America has a special meeting with you, you must be important. 

As a reward for our president, shortly after the meeting the Muslim Brotherhood issued a renewed call for jihad and war against the west

Well done, Mr. President. 

In a short time the administration of Barak Obama has done everything it can to undermine and weaken our best ally in the Middle East while giving free publicity and credibility to one of our biggest enemies. 

Candidate Obama said he wanted to fundamentally remake America.  He is doing a good job of making us a second rate, third world country.  Soon no one will trust us or be willing to work with us. 

Quite a legacy.  You elected him twice America.  It scares me that people get the government they deserve.

  1. That's the scary thing; the morons would vote for him aTHIRD time if they got the chance!


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
