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 2020-195: Headlines: Texans 1, Rioters 0

I don’t know if your sources of news have covered the situation in Austin recently where a BLM rioter, armed with an AK 47, was shot and killed by a motorists.  What has been fascinating to me is the way in which the media seems to be covering up the facts.  This includes the conservative sources I have.  They keep saying that the rioter only pointed his rifle at the car but did not shoot.  The motorists did, and the rioter went down.  The media then says the motorists sped away.  Evidently some of them also claim that he was racing through the crowd.

They leave out some important details.  Some are omissions, some are outright lies.  The lie is that the driver was racing through the crowd.  The omitted fact is that the guy with the AK fired five rounds at the guy in the car, or if he didn’t fire them, someone did.  They also seem to skip the fact that, as soon as he got away from the mob, the driver called the police and reported he had shot someone.  You will find a couple of videos that back this up at Natural News.  I found the link to this site on Free North Carolina.  Go to the second one with the guy in the mask first.

The driver was released after being questioned by the police.  That should tell you something.  We will see if we still have the right to defend ourselves in Texas or not.

Stay tuned.
