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 2018-154: Election 2018: Enforce the Rule of Law

The left is doing everything is can to incite violence.  They keep pushing the envelope.  The past few weeks have seen a rash of abuse on Republicans as they go about their daily lives.  Maxine Waters has openly called for violence.  It is building and there is a temptation we face as conservatives.

We have this feeling that we are the problem and if we will just give them what they want they will go away. 

It doesn’t work that way.  They are demonstrating the classic bullying behavior that keeps thugs in control of neighborhoods.  It is the standard form of negotiating from the progressives.  They demand half of your loaf.  You give it to them and hope for peace.  They realize you are not going to resist so they again demand half of what is left.  You think that will do the trick so you give it to them.  Then they want more.  It goes on until one of two things happen, either you punch the bully in the nose or you are destroyed.  It is part of the bully code.

So the right will have to stand up to the bullies sometime.  They are going to keep pushing until we respond vigorously.  This week Paul Ryan gave the Department of Justice a deadline.  When they did not meet it he blinked and extended the deadline.  It is time to lower the hammer while it can still be done without violence.  The conservatives need to start using the courts and due process to bring the bullies into line.  We need to put the fear of the rule of law in their hearts.  We need to write it loud and long.  We need to not give up until they turn and run and then we need to make sure that they did not hide anything we missed.

The way we can guarantee violence is to keep giving in until we either have no other option or we lose our collective minds.  When you have crowds spitting on government officials have them arrested and file charges.  Such behavior is not allowed.  When a loud group surrounds a conservative as they are trying to watch a movie, call the police, file a complaint and make them hire the lawyers.  When a judge lets his personal prejudice overrule the law, impeach.

And vote the suckers out.  If it is Republicans who want to play nice, let them look for other jobs.

  1. Sad but true. Bullies only win against the passive.

    1. It sounds like you have been outside the cocoon.

      Grace and peace
