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 2020-196: Flag Fear

Why do the Progressives* hate the Confederate flag so much.  They claim it represents racism.  Actually it represents resistance to unconstitutional federal authority.  Slavery was only one of the things that the South was fighting about.  There was also the issue of tariffs.  There was the question of where the transcontinental railroad would be built.  There was the obvious presence of federal armies in their home town.

Although most people will agree that it was time to end slavery they are not so happy about the results of federal overreach.  Look at what federal power is doing to education, abortion on demand, marriage, the Second Amendment, how fast you can drive on the highway, wearing seatbelts and helmets, EPA declaring dry areas as wet lands, nutrition labels and the list goes on. 

The Confederate Battle Flag represents resistance to federal bullying and the gradual usurpation of our rights under the constitution.  It is against requiring a license to cut hair.  I don’t need the federal government to tell me who does a good job and doesn’t give me lice.  Have you ever wondered about all those handicap spaces at the golf course?  If you can’t walk to the golf cart maybe you should not be participating in that activity. 

Keep in mind the liberty sets off an allergic reaction in Progressives*.  It makes them feel insecure.  They want you locked down and masked.  To them the real enemy is you and me living our lives without their direction.

Keep them frustrated.

  1. Ah, you've crossed the line from conservative to "reactionary" (in older liberal minds). Welcome to the club. I've been a member since 2008.

    1. I prefer the title "skeptic".

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
