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 2017-108: Headlines: Surprise! California Heads Toward Sanctuary

I kept hearing rumors that California had become a Sanctuary State yet I was not seeing it in any of the headlines.  I finally did a Google search and got the status.

The California State Senate has passed a law that would make the People’s Republik of Kalifornia a state that ignores federal law on immigration and thus makes us a Sanctuary State.  We would join Maryland in rebellion.  It passed on party lines.  It is now going to the Assembly where the Democrats have a super majority and from there will go to our own governor Moonbeam, the Honorable Jerry Brown.  Guess what party he belongs to.  Since the Democrats are the party of “we hate America” I expect it to pass. 

I then hope that President Trump and his cabinet proceed to fulfill their promises and cut off all federal funds to the state.  Won’t that be fun to watch!  Think of an already crumbling highway system with no federal money.  Think of schools kept afloat with federal grants sinking like a sieve.  Think of welfare programs without the billions to pay their social workers.  Think of all the politicians and government officials without the bottomless largess of the federal government to siphon funds from.  It will not be a pretty sight.  Actually it will be a beautiful sight.

I hope it happens.  I plan to be gone from the state before it kicks in so I will be able to enjoy it from afar.  The only problem is that things may get so bad that the rest of the rats might try to desert the sinking ship.  We may need to draw new lines for the border fence.

  1. The Mexicans have been sating for years that it REALLY belongs to them. I say deed it back to them.

    1. When Americans started moving to Texas with Austin there were only 3,000 Europeans living in the state. California had similar numbers. It was never really theirs so it will be hard to give it back.

      Wait for me to get out before you sign the papers.

      Grace and peace.
