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 2020-230: Headlines: Civil not Martial

I have friends who want Trump to send in the troops and take back the cities granting riot privileges to Antifa and BLM.  I keep telling them that it is not a good idea.  When I pointed out that the Progressives* are looking for a “Kent State Moment” they seemed to get the idea.

If you want a good explanation of why sending in the Mounties is not a good idea I would recommend this article from Townhall.  I found it in a link from Free North Carolina.  It explains the law and the complexity of a military solution.  Some I already knew, other points were new to me.

In case you missed it, Trump has shown his creativity.  He is deputizing the local police as federal law enforcement.  That will mean that the rioters can be arrested and prosecuted in federal courts and get around the catch and release local Democrat imitations of a legal system.

Stay tuned and keep praying.

*(Liberals, educators, socialists, communists, elites, Rinos, Democrats, leftists, Never Trumpers, Antifa, etc)

  1. I had missed the whole deputizing thing. That is brilliant!

    1. And now we have him driving out the Critical Race Theory crowd. They hate him because he refuses to stay in the box.

      Grace and peace
