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 2017-319: Headlines: Coming to a Blood Bank Near You

I was recently going through a procedure and one of the questions they asked me was “Are you willing to take blood if you need it?”  It sounds pretty innocent but I said “No.”  One reason I said “no” is because I don’t believe the blood supply is safe.  That feeling was reinforced recently when I was looking through Ninety Miles from Tyranny and came across a post about my beloved ex-state of California.  Evidently Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown is ready to sign a bill which had passed the state assembly and senate which removed the felony charges for anyone with the HIV virus to knowingly give blood.  It seems that the People’s Republik is ready to allow the blood supply to be infected. 

This site links to something called Your News Wire.  They quote Fox news. 

It may come as no surprise that this is the work of the Democrats.  According to the article,
“All Republicans came out against the bill, claiming a reduction in penalties for exposing someone to HIV puts the public at risk.”
This would be a no-brainer but when you talk about Democrats that seems to be a synonym.  Keep in mind that California has no state-wide offices held by a Republican.  Republicans may not be the answer but we know that the Democrats are the problem.

  1. Don'y you know it's not PC to discriminate against HIV folks who want to "help" by donating their poisonous blood?

    1. I have neighbors who keep feeding the feral cat population. I think they wonder why there are always more of them and my wife wonders what happened to her road runner.

      Grace and peace.

    1. So far I have seen one and sent a reply to it a few minutes ago. Maybe the other will come soon.

      Grace and peace
