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 2020-239: Let the Chips Fall, part 1 of 2

There is a tendency in Americans to feel real sympathy for the people living in the areas decimated by the riots.  We see the burned out businesses and cars.  We see people who were minding their own business beaten to the ground.  We see people trying to defend their life’s work vilified.  Our hearts go out to them.

I am not so sure we should go there.  Keep in mind that these areas are full of people who elected the city councils, mayors and governors that are making the decisions that perpetuate the violence.  Did you see that key word?  “Elected”.  They were not appointed.  They did not pull a military coup.  The people elected them.  According to the Seattle Times, the city of Seattle voted 87% for Hillary in 2016.  Their city council reflects that.  How many of those businesses going up in flames belonged to people who supported the party of Antifa?  Chicago has also seen a lot of violence.  82.2 percent for Hillary.  

For Portland I could only find the county results.  Multnomah County went 76% for Hillary.  I would imagine that the city percentage was much higher.  So again I ask, “How many of the people who had lives destroyed voted for it?”  If my neighbor refuses to change his oil do I have an obligation to help him pay for a new engine?

I am guessing that if you could get the numbers from all the other places that are having a Marxist reality visit, you would find that they had overwhelming support for Hillary Clinton four years ago.  I would still feel sorry for them except for one thing that I believe:  If they held another election today the people would vote the same way.  The Seattle City Council is secure.  The same goes for Portland.  If you look at the states that are having their economies destroyed by jack booted governors I think you would find them on the path to reelection.  

The old saying was, “You get what you pay for.”

  1. I hope you're mistaken about their return, but I suspect you're not.

    1. Someone recently told me they had seen a survey where 60% in one town said they would vote to reelect.

      Grace and peace.
