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 2015-424: A Day of Mourning

Mostly Cajun has a feature called “Today in History”.  On November 3 he us it was the day that the United States introduced the income tax.  It is a day to wear black.

I am not sure if Cajun is referring to the tax during the Civil War, later attempts to introduce the personal income tax (and the courts rejected it) or the time that the Constitution was amended to make it legal.  According to Wikipedia the 16th Amendment was ratified on February 3.  Who would you believe, Cajun or Wikipedia?  Both are entertaining. 

The real problem is that it was ratified, showing why the Founding Fathers had serious doubts about pure democracy.  Of course they would have never believed that people would be so stupid as to accept the current nonsense about identifying as transgender.

Sodom move over.  Rome, take a back seat.  America is coming just as soon as our taxes are paid.
