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 2017-401: Headlines: Be Careful What You Wish For

Should Al Franken resign?  We need to be careful of our answers because, as conservatives, we believe in the rule of law.  That means that we don’t have one set of rules for us and one for them.  We are not liberals who think the rules only apply to people who are not special like they are.

Why would I like to see him resign?  First, he should not have been elected in the first place.  As I had read several places, he is a jerk.  In addition to that I would like to see him go because he is a force for political evil.  He also has one thing that almost demands resignation:  He has admitted to a lot of disgusting actions. 

Why am I cautious?  The same reason I call for reason and law in the case of Judge Moore.  So far it has been trial by media and hysteria.  As a member of the faceless masses I caution my fellow faces to stop reacting with mindless emotion.  Stop condemning someone just because the media wants blood.  If you get on a jury, listen to the evidence and give the verdict.  If you have an opinion, share it.  Never forget that we have rules and those rules are supposed to apply to everyone.  We have laws against rape.  We have laws that protect our physical person from unwanted touching and our mental person from verbal assault.  Apply them.

Don’t join the lych mob.  It doesn’t matter how nasty the victim.  Remember,
(Proverbs 29:27 KJV)  An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.
The disgust goes both ways.  Every exception to law breaks down the rule of law.

Having said that, I hope the guy crawls back under the rock that spit him out.

  1. Agreed, an allegation is only an accusation, not a conviction.

    1. It will be interesting to see if the call for blood dies down on Franken after he resigns. That was the way it was in all the Republican cases.

      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.
