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 2020-145: Headlines: Judge Who Is Above the Law

Progressives* are alive and well in Texas.  A recent headline at My San Antonio “news” site started off with “Wolff finds way around Governor.”  Wolff is a county judge who evidently is looking to be the chief executive of Texas rather than a judge.  Governor Abbott had ruled that counties could not fine people for not wearing masks.  The go-around that the judge proclaimed “ex cathedra” was that customers could not be fined but the business they were in could be fined $1,000 for each offense.  That sounds like progressive thinking to me.

The judge knows he is thumbing his nose at the rule of the law.  In the article he is quoted as saying,
“The action that I’m taking today may be pushing the legal bounds a little bit,” Wolff said. “But our attorneys believe we can defend this order in court.”
So we have an officer of the court admitting that he is, in effect, breaking the spirit of the law even if he found a sophist way of working within the letter.  Do you think he would let you get away with this if you were to appear in his court?

What made the whole thing even more ludicrous was the picture that went with the article.  It shows the judge adjusting his face covering.  In the process of adjusting he has his bare hands right under his nose as he moves a cowboy bandana.  If you are expecting the judge to keep you from catching whatever he has, don’t count on it.  His face covering is literally just a big handkerchief that he has tied behind his head.  It would not keep any virus in or out.

Petty dictators exist in Texas as well as the blue cities of other states.  They remind us that rules are for the little people, not their anointed rulers. 

The liberty destroying comedy goes on.

  1. Unfortunately, the fact that God will someday deal with these hypocrites makes our lives no better.

    2. There is a reason the Bible talks about kings and not presidents.
