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 2019-067: Did Hitler Project?

One of the progressive left’s greatest projections is that of Hitler.  In case you were not paying attention in your high school or college psychology class, here is a definition from Wikipedia:
“Psychological projection is a defence (sic) mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.”
One example is Hillary and her “vast right wing conspiracy”.  Another example is the left accusing conservative talk radio of inciting violence.  They do the same with Hitler and the Nazis.  They take the attitudes of liberals, which are very close to those of the National Socialists, and they try to lay them on Donald Trump and his conservative supporters.

They claim to be for the people when they are only for people who will fall into lock step and do what they are told.  They call us intolerant when it is the left that is attacking anyone they can’t get to agree with them.  There is no lie they won’t tell nor any distortion they will not use to try to dominate the process. 

We need to learn to stop the knee jerk reactions.  The “have you stopped beating your wife” questions need to be called out.  We need to understand that they don’t won’t to work with us they want to destroy us. 

Hitler and his cronies would be proud of them.
