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 2018-234: Little Details

I missed it.  I was too angry at the gotcha question that Senator Booker kept repeating.  A “gotcha question” is one that goes like this:  Have you stopped beating your wife?  Just give me a “yes” or “no” answer.  In this case most of us can see the trap.  I guess Booker and the other Democrats who kept asking their version of Have You Stopped Beating Your Wife thought that the judge was as limited as they were and would not see it.

I picked it up in an article at Chicks on the Right.  They looked at Booker’s question and focused on a two word phase:  her truth.  I don’t know if it hits you right away but this sums up the difference between the rule of law and the rule of despots.

Our country’s founding fathers had a lot of differences but the vast majority of them had a mind set based in Judeo-Christian thinking that says there is objective truth.  All things are not relative.  There may be disagreement on what that truth is.  There may be solutions that can not grasp the whole truth.  We may not understand it, but there is truth.

The Democrats (Socialists, Communists, leftists, elites, Rinos, Progressives, Liberals) on the committee reject that position and it was demonstrated by Cory Booker’s statement.  He was basically saying that even if the alleged attack never took place, to her it did and that made it “truth”.  Even if it was a lie, it was truth.  That sounds very sensitive and touchy feely.  If you are trying to decide who gets the biggest slice of pie for desert it is no big deal but if you are responsible to pass laws and enforce them it is chilling to civilized behavior. 

What is does is allow you to have a living Constitution.  That means that the law can mean anything that the latest judge wants it to mean.  The world is their oyster and we are the sand that they get to make their pearls with.  It means that any woman can accuse any man of anything at anytime and he is guilty.  It means that any non-white can accuse any white of anything at any time and that they are guilty.  You can rewrite that statement any way you want.  Fill in your own nouns.  What it means that we all walk in fear because we don’t know what will set someone off.  It could be anything as silly as the color of your sox to the look on your face.

No, Senator Booker, it was not “her truth”.  It might be her belief.  It could be her opinion.  It could be all kinds of things but it is either true or not.

Liberty is based on such small details.  Stay awake.  We have an election coming.  If you want people of good character to refuse to seek public office then by all means vote for a Democrat.
