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 2017-384: What Happened to the Rule of Law?

I am so disgusted to be a Republican.  I keep thinking I am going to register as an Independent but they are just as disgusting.  Which is more a danger to our future freedom, due process and the assumption of innocence until guilt is proven or accusations of inappropriate behavior that took place 40 years ago?  To me the answer is so obvious I wonder why Mitch McConnell and his cronies don’t see it.  Or maybe they do and don’t care because it is all about being loved by a mass media core that hates them with every ounce of their being.

So let me act like you are mature adults dealing with a bunch of middle school students making an accusation.

First, consider the source.  When I have a student accusing someone of something I would sometimes ignore it and other times get concerned.  If a student who would not know the truth if it were on his lunch tray tells me something, I am a bit skeptical.  People who lie regularly about whether they have gum in their mouth or whether the trash on the floor is theirs can’t be trusted to tell the truth about anything of importance.  Who is the source of the accusations against Judge Moore?  The Washington Post and a reporter with a long record of deceit and partisan activity.

Second, consider the accused.  When someone tells me that another teacher has said something I always ask myself if that sounds like what that teacher would do.  Students would have a hard time convincing other teachers I had cussed the student out because no teacher has ever heard me use profanity or vulgarity.  The principal would believe them but she isn’t known for her discernment or objectivity.  I have followed Judge Moore for years and have seen a man of principle and integrity that has stood up to the forces of liberal anti-Americanism and anti-Christian bigotry.  The accusations just don’t sound right.

Third, is there an ulterior motive?  You may not get out much but when a student is caught red handed they often try to distract from the issue at hand.  Or they may be mad at someone who did something they didn’t like and they are out to get them.  Can you really expect a football player at UCLA to say anything nice about a lineman from USC?  Picture all the sport events you have seen with players getting in the face of the referee trying to convince them that they have been wronged.  Unfortunately we do not have instant replays of events from 40 years ago.  We have a press corps that is in the pocket of the Democrats.  They hate conservatives.  They hate Christians.  They hate traditional values.  To them Judge Moore is fair game.

Is it possible that he acted in a totally unacceptable way 40 years ago?  Of course it is.  It is also possible that the American astronauts on the moon were really on a Hollywood set or that Bill Clinton never cheated on his wife.  This is why we have courts.  This is why it is on the accuser to prove his case in front of an impartial jury.  Let’s look at a few of the trials by media that we have faced:  Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, George Zimmerman, The Baltimore Police, Bruce Herschensohn, Dan Quayle, etc.  The list is long.  The charges have usually not been filed.  When the charges were filed we find that they were false.

There are times when I feel like I live in the France of 1793 (Reign of Terror) rather than America in 1868 (Impeachment of Andrew Johnson).

The American solution is to let the election proceed, file your charges and see where the chips fall.  If he is guilty then he can serve his time in the Senate and the State Pen concurrently.

  1. It's becoming common democrat strategy to wait until just before an election and make sexual allegations about the republican candidate. That way, the republican doesn't have time to prove himself innocent in time for the election.

    As for party affiliation, I registered as "not affiliated with any political party," after the republicans figured McCain was the man to run for president a few years back.

    1. Yeah, and look what we got a president who is keeping his promises, reviving the country and trying to drain the swamp. You should be proud.

      Grace and peace.
