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 2015-426: Bullying Curriculum Goes International

One of the themes that is being run into the ground in public education is bullying.  I had another packet dumped on my desk, from another website, with the same tired topics to discuss.  It is part of the Nanny State trying to turn everyone into victims and make them call on professionals to help them find security.  In this approach almost anything that makes a person uncomfortable can be construed as bullying and the assumption is that the bad guy will become a warm and considerate human being if you treat him nice.

You are seeing the application of this in American foreign policy.  Our president thinks that if he is nice to international bullies and keeps giving in and being understanding that eventually they will see th error of their ways.  There is no line in the sand that he is not willing to erase.  There is no agreement he is not willing to give in on.  There is no concession he cannot love.  There is no place for pushing or force.  All you need is a meaningful conversation.

How is that working for you?  How is that working for the Middle East? 

Iran will get the bomb and missiles to deliver it.  Russia will back their play.  Obama is already playing Chamberlain to Putin’s Hitler.  Get ready.  War is in the works and the chances are it will not be just a matter of “over there” this time.  The Germans tried to enlist Mexico on on their side during World War I.  Who is to say that the drug lords of Mexico and the crime lords of Moscow can’t come to an agreement this time.

      Grace and peace.
