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 2021-006: New Terms: AINO

This is another take off on the “Rino” concept.  It is not incredibly original but came to me as I was looking at what is happening in Georgia.

I started with the Democrats.  They hate what America is, or should I now say, was?  They want to trade our liberty for their power and security and they want to do it because we cannot be trusted to make decisions for ourselves.  It is for our own good.  

Then I thought of the Rinos who have been doing everything they can to undermine Trump and keep the Progressives* in the driver’s seat.  Many of them are like the Russian KGB moles, planted years ago and acting the part of being patriotic Americans.  Now they are being activated in a key moment in our history.

It occurred to me that what they have in common is contempt for the Constitution, disgust at common Americans and at heart, a hatred for America.

So I suddenly said to myself, “Americans in Name Only.”  There you have it, AINO.  I won’t try to tell you how to pronounce it.

*(Liberals, educators, socialists, communists, crony capitalists, elites, Rinos, Democrats, leftists, Never Trumpers, Antifa, etc.  Another word for swamp dwellers)
