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 2015-145: Headlines: Body Counts

I am sure you have seen the blaring headlines about the dead bodies in Chicago and Baltimore.  I think I saw New York too but in just those two cities we had 21 dead.  Just think, it is more dangerous to be a civilian in Chicago than a soldier in Afghanistan.  Remember when the number killed in Iraq was a glaring headline.  Remember when the president and his Progressive allies were calling to pull out?  Maybe that should be the solution for our big cities.

The problem is, “Whom do you pull out?”  It seems that those being killed are civilians.  It seems that those doing the killing are civilians.  I would guess that a significant number were black.  For those who want to bleat about how black lives count, they can add 21 to the count.  Why don’t we hear that black killers count also?  Where were the police when this tragedy was going on? 

At least six of them were on trial in Baltimore. 

That sure kept the people of Baltimore safe, didn’t it.

  1. I think the same thing will work both places. Get out of the way and let them kill until no-one's standing.

    1. Although I might agree with that intellectually, physically my body is residing in one of those kill zones. Of course, if it would contribute to the betterment of society, I would be willing to take the risk of survival. Better yet, I could speed up my schedule for getting out of Progressiville.

      Grace and peace.
