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 2017-070: Headlines: Where Are the Cops?

I am sure that by now those who get beyond CNN have heard about the brownshirts at Middlebury College.  They not only disrupted the planned visit of a world known scholar but attacked the car he was trying to leave in and roughed up the faculty member who was escorting him.  One reason we know this is fascism at work is that the faculty member was a liberal who had the temerity to actually be open minded and wanted to give the other side a chance to express its opinion.  To the fascist left that is probably the biggest sin.

We are going to see more and more of this but the reason I highlight this post is all in the title.  The title asks, “Where are the cops?”  Why are violent insurrectionists being arrested and allowed to find out what the rule of law means?  Every time we let them get away with this kind of thing and say, “Just childish enthusiasm” they will be emboldened to get even more violent next time.  If we do not start arresting, putting on trial and jailing the revolutionaries they will drive us from the square and take over our society.

Then the purges will really begin.  1984, anyone?
