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 2017-083: Sanctuary Homes, Anyone?

How come the people who are in favor of sanctuary cities seem to be against the sanctuary home.  You know, where a man’s home is his castle and the government should stay out.  Where self defense is an obvious right.

I guess it may be the same concept, really.  They believe that lawbreakers and criminals have a right to go about their business without the local citizens having the right to protection.  The police are told not to comply with the law, not to protect the law abiding from invaders and to penalize anyone who stands up for the American citizen.

The same is true if I defend myself in my home from a lawbreaker and criminal.  In California I am told that if someone breaks into my home and threatens my family and I use a gun to defend them, I am to assume I will be arrested and go to jail.  I may get out in a few hours if I have a lawyer, but I will be going to jail.

Welcome to Progressive, Democrat, liberal America.

Now go home.
