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 2020-215: 3006 Criminals and Psychopaths

I won’t go to 3006 restaurants if I can help it.  Texas has two signs that are required to be posted if an establishment wants to ban firearms from their business.  A 3007 sign says you can’t come in practicing open carry.  A 3007 bans concealed carrying of a firearm.  If there is no sign you can theoretically do either.

I avoid 3006 businesses because they make me feel insecure.  The knowledge that I have entered a gun free zone just reminds me that the only people paying attention are the sane, law abiding, gun owners.  Psychopaths and criminals will be psychopaths and criminals.  It is what they do or they would not be psychopaths and criminals.  When I sit down to dinner knowing that there is a good chance that a level headed, law abiding citizen near me is armed it gives me greater peace of mind.

It is funny how the snowflakes turn the reasoning around even after repeated school shootings, mall massacres and such, all in gun free zones.  There are a lot of reasons why those things don’t happen at gun shows.
