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 2018-219: Cornerstone Considerations: BRVI, The Haters Strike Again

Amidst the weeping and gnashing of teeth about the lack of civility from our liberal snowflakes we have the latest bit of hate filled smear aimed at Brett Kavanaugh.  Someone, who does not want to be named, wrote a letter to a Trump Hating congresswoman and asked that nothing be done about it.  Say that again?  The continued leaks infer it was something from his high school years.  The media has been having a hay day with it.

It now gives us a good test of Kavanaugh’s character.  I am not talking about whether he acted like a fool when he was in high school.  No sane person really cares about that.  I mean does he have the courage to stand up to the Democrat hate machine when it gets this bad.  If he cannot stand up in the face of this then he probably will not stand by his principles later.  I could say the same thing for the Republicans who should get this vote over without a hiccup. 

We also need to get past all this anonymous nonsense that is going on about calling a hot line if you see something happen.  Anonymous hot lines are the tool of the devil.  The Founders understood that when they wrote the Sixth Amendment to the Constitution which says anyone accused of a crime has the right
“ be confronted with the witnesses against him...”
It is very easy to call people names when you don’t have to be held accountable for your accusations. 

I would vote to censor Diane Feinstein before I would want Judge Kavanaugh to be rejected over this.
