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 2018-301: Hostile Takeover

My understanding of a hostile takeover is when a group of businessmen with money buy out a company that has a lot of assets and is worth much more than its stock price.  They then sell off everything with worth and dump the rest.  In the process they make a bundle and feel real good about themselves but all the people who were working and producing in the previous company are out on the street looking for work.  If the scam artists are really good they can loot any value in the retirement accounts also.

That is my view of what is happening to the Boy Scouts.  I have not read the articles but I am seeing more and more references to the Scouts declaring bankruptcy.  The problem started when a small group of activists weaseled their way into positions of power and began to change the moral compass of the program.  They allowed the homosexual agenda access to the young boys of America.  They then decided that they would allow girls into the scouts and I believe actually changed the name to reflect that. 

Is it any surprise that the people who were the heart of scouting, those with traditional moral values, have been leaving the program?  Is it any surprise that the organization is falling apart?  Not really.  I believe that was the plan from the beginning.  Keep in mind that there are people out there who will not rest until they have destroyed every grain of moral fiber from the country and its organizations.  Colleges and universities are jokes with endowments.  Newspapers are becoming Soros subsidies.  The courts have thrown the rule of law under the bus and rule by what is currently politically correct. 

Maybe the scouts will continue to exist but they will be an empty shell of what they once were.  It may come to the point that people will need to state that they were an Eagle Scout pre 2018 or some such.

homo unius libri


  1. When I was a Boy Scout, they had a badge called "God and Country." It's been gone for years. Incidentally, they thought they were going to get more members when they let girls in. Instead, they lost a quarter of a million scouts when the Mormons pulled their boys out. A thought I have is what sort of perverted parents send their girls to the Boy Scouts when the Girl Scouts still exist (in theory).

    1. The Girl Scouts caved years ago to the gay agenda. I thought the BSA would hang in there. Goes to show how much I know.

      Grace and peace
