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 2019-248: Headlines: Hypocrite Counties

I am reading many posts referencing the counties of Virginia declaring themselves Sanctuary Counties in regard to the Virginia State Legislature and governor making moves toward confiscating the guns of Virginians. 

I find it a bit hypocritical of conservatives who think this is a good idea after condemning cities for declaring themselves sanctuaries.  Where were they on election day?

I also am puzzled.  I read that 90% of the counties have declared themselves as refusing to cooperate.  Did I miss something?  My memory tells me that in the last election these same “patriots” voted a bunch of Democrats into control of the state.  Are they living in a state of cognitive dissonance?  Can they not connect the dots?  What happened to the rule of law.  They are trying to do the same things that the Progressives have been doing to destroy our republic.  You elected these fools.  Unelect them.  Have recalls.  Start to impeach.  Mimic Antifa.  You made your bed.  Either lie in it or change the sheets.

Sanctuary Counties indeed.  We need to decide whether we believe in the rule of law or not.  If we do then we need to apply the law in its fulness to those who try to do end runs.  That would mean the Progressives trying to invalidate the 2016 election, the liberals in Virginia trying to do an end run around the Second Amendment, and, yes, the counties that think they don’t have to enforce the laws that their elected leaders passed. 

If you look at statues of Justice you will notice that the balance has two sides and the sword is doubled edged.
