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 2019-152: Election 2020: Reinstate the Alamo

As I sit in the airport I keep hearing PR blurbs to promote San Antonio.  One of the often mentioned attractions is the Alamo.  That is interesting because the political leaders have been doing everything they can to drain the Alamo of any meaning to Americans.  There used to be an annual ritual of locals to go to the plaza in front of the Alamo and have a family picture taken in front of a huge Christmas tree.  The city fathers, in their infinite wisdom, decided to relocate the tree to a little park somewhere else.  The reason?  I never heard one worth remembering. 

In addition to that the Alamo is now or will be soon a UN World Heritage site.  This is an ongoing thing around the world.  In the process the history will be rewritten to eradicate anything that might make the United States look good.  It will become the location of an atrocity rather than a symbol of patriotism.  If you check you will find that there are a growing number of National Parks that are being moved under the umbrella of the UN.  I was shocked when I visited Smokey Mountain National Park and found out that it was a UN site.  In defense of the UN they did have a circle on the ground labeled a “Free Speech Zone” in which I could exercise my First Amendment right. 

I would like to submit as a campaign issue the reclaiming of American landmarks and natural resources for Americans.  I don’t think most Americans are aware that the Grand Canyon is no longer an American wonder but a product of their benevolent world government.  I think this would be a winner for anyone running for office who loves their country.

Foreigners would always be welcome and encouraged to visit.  They need to know that they are in America.

Meanwhile, remember to vote the suckers out.

  1. This is really interesting. You make a good case for doing more to protect out national historic sites.

    1. And the next step might be to begin establishing some new sites based on the values of the UN.

      Grace and peace
