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 2017-206: Headlines: Socialized Medicine at Work

My attention was caught by a post on the Trumpland site.  Since I originally put it in my “Fun Sites” folder, I can never tell at first glance if it is satire, true or both.  With all the Fake news around it is often hard to tell the difference.  The basic facts seemed too evil to be real.  A baby was born with serious brain damage.  The doctors had done everything they knew to do and said it was time to let the baby die.  The parents raised almost two million dollars to take the baby to America for some experimental treatment.  According to this site the courts had refused to let them do so.  This couldn’t be right, could it?

I followed the link to something called “Right Wing News”.  While I might find that an indication that they were reliable, I know that many others would not.  So I looked for a further link, and found it.

Which takes us to a “real” newspaper.  I assume the British Daily Mail could be considered a legitimate source of news.  What I found was that all of the details in the first post were accurate.  Even though the parents had raised the money to move on, the government court took the slot reserved for the proverbial “death panal” and said the baby must die.

This is European socialized medicine at its best.  This is the great health care system of Great Britain that so many American Progressives like to hold up as an example.  This is what is coming to us if the Republicans don’t get their act together and follow through on their promise to repeal Obamacare.  This is a socialized, central controlled health care system that won’t even let people spend their own money for health care.

Welcome to the goal of Obama and the Progressives.
