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 2018-051: Conspiracy, Anyone?

I don’t have a membership card in the Tin-Foil Hat Society but today I am going to apply for a one day guest pass.

In case your taste in viewing is a little more sheltered than some, you need to know that there is a plethora of people publishing video blogs who are convinced that the deep state is poised to overthrow the duly elected president of the United States and put the resources of America at the disposal of a One World Government.  One of their themes is that the CIA and FBI have sold out the citizens of the country and are at the root of most of the crime and corruption in the country.  They talk about human trafficking and the sale of body parts.  They have linked almost every president back to George I and they are all out to bring down Donald Trump.  On a bad day they think that Donald Trump is in on it too.

One of the theories they are throwing out is that the recent school shooting was actually done by the FBI and the Cruz kid is just their dupe.  It sounded crazy to me.  It sounded like Tin Foil Hat time.  It was laughable.

Then I find out that there was a sheriff’s deputy on the school grounds during the entire shooting and instead of engaging the shooter he hid.  That also does not make sense.  He was not a new cop.  He had received rewards for how well he worked with the kids which means to me that he would have some emotional involvement with them.  Why would a seasoned cop hide from a kid who only had his gun for a few weeks? 

Maybe he wasn’t hiding from Cruz.  Maybe he saw a group of organized and obviously trained men executing children and realized he was dead meat if they ever became aware of his presence.  Maybe the Tin Hats have something.  If you read the article about this officer it says that he has resigned and is being guarded by six deputies.  The reason is to protect him from the public.  Do you need six officers to protect someone from a bunch of high school snow flakes?  Maybe they are protecting him from the FBI.  Sounds crazy, doesn’t it?  And now we find there were at least three more deputies cowering outside the school.

I have not been reading everything about the shooting but in what little I have seen there are no eye witnesses to Cruz actually doing the shooting.  Have I missed it?  Then you have the video of the girl who said she was talking to Cruz as the shooting started.  Is she still alive or has she committed suicide or died in a plane crash?  Sure he confessed but with all of the mental problems he obviously has would that be hard to coerce?

Why would the FBI do something like this?  Why do they do a lot of what they do.  Ask Scooter Libby who did nothing wrong.  Ask Mike Flynn who did nothing wrong.  Ask Hillary Clinton who has broken repeated laws and is still walking free. 

We live in interesting times, tin hats or not.

  1. I'm sure there was only the one kid DOING it, but who knows who might have encouraged him and ALLOWED it.

    1. And I had a tin foil hat waiting for you. Either way be glad you don't live in a gun free zone.

      Grace and peace
