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 2020-165: Shoud-a-Beens: Invasion Anyone?

It wasn’t my idea.  We were having Sunday dinner and discussing the state of affairs.  My son suggested an enterprising Indian tribe needs to invade the autonomous zone in Seattle and declare it conquered territory.  The various American Indian tribes have a sort of semi-autonomous state so they can understand the condition.  Since CHAZ or CHOP considers themselves no longer a part of the United States they would be responsible for their own defense.

Once they have possession, the tribe can make a deal with the locals:  No taxes and membership in the tribe.  They could also buy the property that has been destroyed and build a casino.  It sounds like a win all around.

Based on what I have seen of Seattle and its people it would be a win for all of us.  We might need to bribe a few Indians.
