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 2017-329: Critical Mass: Factions

Society has many bumps and potholes.  What happens when those potholes become sinkholes?  What happens when a small blip reaches Critical Mass.  Today I want to talk about extreme partisanship or factions. 

Being partisan is part of being free.  It is not a real issue.  What is an issue is the extreme form that becomes a faction.  A faction is willing to destroy the entire dining room just to keep others from having a place at the table.  We are seeing that attitude in activities like the use of special counsels to advance a political agenda.

I don’t have a problem with the special counsel digging into the dirt of Washington.  There is a heap of dirt to dig up and if he digs carefully he can discover where the bodies are buried.

What I have a problem with is only digging in one place and only recognizing one type of dirt.  The obvious example is the mountain of dirt that is clearly visible on the Clintons.  Does the Clinton Foundation ring any bells?  Does uranium for Putin sound familiar?  Where have I heard about some e-mails that got lost?  Are we looking into any of that corruption?  No.  They are on the protected species list put out by the left.

We have seen this kind of thing from Dan Quayle spelling potatoes in the alternative way supplied on a card by a teacher and being called ignorant to Barak Obama talking about visiting 57 states and being declared a genius. 

The Republicans could do something about the problem but they are secretly cheering the special counsel on.  They have more in common with the Progressives than the masses.  They don’t have a problem with destroying our liberty because they feel they will be among the select elite that run things when it comes crashing down.

So far the American people have been patient.  I don’t know how long that will continue.  The last election was the voice of the people saying, “Drain the swamp”.  All the elites hear is the anarchists and snowflakes chanting, “Not my president”.  My fear is that they will keep it up until the only answer is violence.  My other fear is that the masses will be complacent until violence is the only answer.

Vote the suckers out.

  1. I keep hoping I'll live a reasonably long life (another 15 years or so), but not long enough to see a civil war or the tribulation! - lol

    1. I am not sure you are going to make it. Maybe when things fall apart it won't spread to the well armed hills of West Virginia.

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
