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 2018-079: Headlines: What Is Good for the Goose...

Impeachment made the headlines again, this time on Yahoo with a quote by Jimmy Carter.  When I saw the click-bait my first reaction was, “Who cares what Jimmy Carter thinks?”  I guess the answer to that is the MSM and the Never Trump sycophants.  I did not bother reading the article but considered the idea.

If the Democrats really want to impeach Trump then they need to be informed that the line forms on the left.  We can start with the earliest known cases of high crimes and misdemeanors.  I would suggest that we limit the pogroms to living presidents, secretaries and judges.  Trying to impeach Thomas Jefferson, Lincoln or FDR would be kind of pointless.  The list of the living is long enough and includes two Clintons, at least one Obama, numerious FBI power-brokers and a long list of judges who have applied their personal opinions rather than the Constitution.

I kind of like the idea.  Maybe we could have some legislation passed so that the general population could vote on the verdict.  Better yet, use the electoral college.  We have had two attempts at impeachment.  The first, by the Republicans, was a trumped up job and justice prevailed by one vote in the senate.  The second was an open and shut case by the Republicans but they didn’t have the testicles to apply the law as justice demanded.  Maybe the third time would be the charm.

Eventually they might get to Donald Trump but by that time he may have joined Jefferson, Lincoln and FDR.
