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 2020-114: Headlines: A Bad Example

I have seen the question asked, “What’s happening in Texas.”  There are a lot of headlines about the struggle between liberty and state control.  You may have heard about the hair stylist, Shelly Luther, being locked up because she would not apologize to the judge.  You may have read about the sheriff’s department that raided a bar in full SWAT mode to arrest some peaceful protestors.  Now I read that the San Antonio City council has declared the term “China virus” to be hate speech. 

What is happening to Texas?  Democrats.  Californians.  Progressives*.

Most of the nonsense if located in or near the major cities of Texas.  They were described by one of the leaders of the state as blueberry islands in a sea of strawberries.  They have the common problem of all major cities in the United States.  They attract people who want the government to tell them when it is safe to come out in the sunshine.  I live outside San Antonio and I avoid it when I can.  When I am forced to visit Austin I feel like I am back in Los Angeles. 

I am in favor of putting a moratorium on California residents moving to Texas.  They do everything they can to pass their liberal agenda there and then when things get really bad they move to a place like Texas.  They really believe that Socialism is the answer and that it has never been given a fair shake.  Now they want to continue the California experiment in the Lone Star State.

As an ex-Californian I beg them to stay home.  Don’t do as I did.  Do as I say.

*(Liberals, educators, socialists, communists, elites, Rinos, Democrats, leftists, Never Trumpers, etc)

  1. They are incapable of intelligent thought. That's why they're liberals.

    1. That certainly seems to be true today.

      Grace and peace
