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 2017-273: Wasn’t Robert E. Lee a Democrat?

I have been working on this for a couple of days and now I read that Rush has done a piece on the same subject.  Here is what I had ready for tomorrow.

The leftists and racebaiters of this country are trying to remove every bit of evidence that America fought a civil war over the issue of states rights.  They want to tear down statues of Robert E. Lee and any other soldier who fought for the Confederacy.  Well, I guess the winners get to write the history but the winners found a place for the losers.  It is the modern losers that are going after these monuments under the excuse that they are people who supported slavery.

Okay, I get it.  Now let’s go to the next level.  You don’t like the KKK?  Then lets expunge any record of the late Senator Robert Byrd.  We must remove his name from every building in West Virginia that he had erected.  We need to remove from the history books any mention of a self identifying Democrat before Lyndon Johnson.  The Democrats were the party of slavery.  Remember that.  The KKK were all Democrats when they actually had muscle.  They even came to Democrat national conventions and demonstrated to force the choice of their candidate for president.  Woodrow Wilson had some very clear racist ideas.  Guess what party he belonged to.  Jim Crow?  Democrats.  Black Codes?  Democrats.  School segregation?  Democrats.  Locked up the Japanese?  Democrats.  Do you see a pattern?

We could go on.  If we are going to be consistent we need to remove the legacy of anyone who belonged to the party of slavery.  We might want to go back to Africa and get rid of some of the descendants of the people who sold the slaves to European traders also, but we can leave that for another day.

  1. Careful now, Pumice, you wouldn't want to show hatred toward the left by forcing them to see the truth.

    1. That is a hate crime I could embrace. Have we come up with "cruel crimes" yet?

      Grace and peace
