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 2020-146: The Appropriate Culture

I wonder if it would be cultural appropriation if we all declared ourselves to be Roof Koreans.  Would the Koreans mind?  Would we care, after all, they are not black.  They are secure in whom they are.  Maybe we could be more accurate and use Roof South Koreans or South Roof Koreans.

We could develop some kind of logo that is easy to recognize like the MAGA hats.  We could have yard signs replacing the “Insured by Smith and Wesson” signs that say so much.  We could take down our “Beware of Dog” signs and put of “Beware of Roof Korean”.  Instead of Neighborhood Watch we could have Rook Korean Watch and in our car windows little signs that say “Roof Korean on Board”.

People are living in fear of the violence.  One of the things we keep forgetting is that Antifa and BLW are cowards at heart.  They will never face someone of equal power.  They gang up on you, sneak up behind your back, attack at night and generally do whatever they can to get the advantage.  The recent video of the thug walking down the street and casually punching the old lady in the walker is an example.  He would not have done that to Chuck Norris, at least not more than once.  If it was a legitimate war, both sides would be doing this and it would be above board.  Ambushes and surprise attacks are marks of a good general in war time.  They are the marks of a criminal coward when the other side is unarmed and does not consider themselves in the fight.  If the rioters perceive that you are ready for them and ready to return the harm, they will look for a different venue.  For those of you afraid of guns you might try an Airsoft. 

So this is not an advocacy of violence, it is a way to avoid it.  If the fleet in Pearl Harbor had been alert and ready the Japanese would not have attacked.  If America had been expecting the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon the terrorists would have gone looking for someone who was asleep.  When terrorists want to shoot up a public venue they avoid the gun show and hit the gun free zone down the street.

We are all Roof Koreans now, or we should be.
