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 2017-305: Should-a-Beens: The Rule of Law

How come the left thinks that burning an American flag is an honorable expression of free speech but a bumper sticker with a Confederate flag is an expression of hate?  We are seeing the results of the Progressives attempting to push “hate” crimes.  That means they get to pick and chose whom to prosecute and the ones they pick are the ones who disagree with them.

The Constitution does not recognize speech or thoughts as being something to have laws against.  In fact we are guaranteed the freedom of speech and the press just so we can express thoughts and beliefs that people hate.  No one passes laws against ice cream.  Well, maybe they would in California, but what do you expect there.  I have never heard anyone advocate a law against ice cream.  I would be in favor of a law against liver and onions being served in public, but I know I would be laughed out of the office.  Some things are not allowed.

Liberty means that we are not only free to have our opinions, but so is the other guy.  It is called the rule of law.

Hate that can be legislated against is the hate that brings physical abuse against another.  I can say I hate rap music.  I can advocate against rap music.  I can ban rap music from my home.  It is not a crime until I go out and beat up a rapper.  That is why the KKK can get a permit to march in protest.  That is why CNN can create fake news.  That is why politicians don’t go to jail for not keeping their campaign promises.  That is why these anarchists of the left that beat up conservatives should be going to jail.  It isn’t because they disagree.  It is because they assault.

The authorities need to enforce the law not ignore it when the violation is from the left.

    1. The left is pushing for a violent reaction. The big question is can they be stopped short of the violence they seek.

      Grace and peace
