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 2018-268: Gauntlet Time

I, like many Americans, do not have a clue to what is going on in Florida and Arizona.  Everything I read comes from one side or the other but it is strange how the same areas have so much trouble counting votes and always seem to find piles of uncounted Democrat votes after the Republicans win an election.

Now is the time to throw down the gauntlet of the law.  Or else this is the time to shut up and slink away.  As conservatives we are supposed to believe in the rule of law.  We are against rule by fiat or personality.  There are rules and they should be followed.  One of the basics of life is that you never win a game when only your opponent is allowed to cheat. 

So put up or shut up.  If the duly elected election officials of Broward County have been ignoring the laws passed to govern the validity of elections then here is what we do:  Arrest, Arraign, Indict, Try, Jail.  It is pretty simple.  Do it.  If there is no indictment or conviction then either you are full of hot air or you are incompetent.  If there is no significant jail time then you are part of the problem. 

The alternative is not acceptable to conservatives.  One of the character attributes of true conservatives is integrity.  I don’t mean just talking about it.  I mean living it.  We refuse to cheat.  We refuse to get violent until every other course has been followed.  We are patient and try to work through the system.  We cannot honestly cry “foul” until we have actually worked the system.

So use the law.  If we are forced to the alternative then we have lost because violent vigilante action usually ends up destroying the system it sets out to protect.

What does the arrogant rule breaker often say when caught in the act?  “So sue me.”  Do it.
