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 2017-418: Headlines: A Democrat Rediscovers Due Process

The Democrats continue the charade of being law abiding.  Now the Boston Herald tells us that Senator Leahy is recanting on his call for Al Franken to step down.
“Sen. Patrick Leahy says he regrets calling for Sen. Al Franken to resign instead of waiting for an ethics investigation.”
His reason is a sudden conversion to the rule of law.
‘The Burlington Free Press reports the Vermont Democrat released a statement Monday, saying he has "stood for due process" throughout his career, and that he regrets "not doing that this time." He says the Ethics Committee "should have been allowed to investigate and make its recommendation."’
I wonder if his conversion extends to Roy Moore.

I wonder how many other Democrats will suddenly become converts to due process.  What they forgot is that “due process” can become the refuge of the scoundrel as much as the innocent.  For the criminals in congress you refer it to a committee.  Keep in mind that when you want nothing to get done you refer it to committee.  Every chairman of the board knows that.
