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 2021-019: Headlines: That Scary Little Phrase

We are living in a developing nightmare.  Everyone who can tell the difference between a light bulb that is burned out and one that is just turned off has heard about how Amazon has been involved in attacking the competition for Twitter, Parler.  It is an amazing attack that would make the fascist regimes of the 1930's say, “That’s my boy.”  They removed their app so no one can access a new account.  Then they cut them off of the internet and removed them from the Amazon marketplace.  That is all scary enough but did you read the entire list of people dropping them.

The part that should send ice water into your veins is the part where it says that the list of people dropping them included their lawyers.  They did this to President Trump also.  I don’t know if it is just social pressure, subtle innuendo or blatant threats of physical violence but our new Progressive* overlords are making it impossible to even wind our way through the legal maze.  They are making it impossible to get a lawyer.

As so many other oppressive moves of the Progressives* this goes against the spirit as well as the letter of the Constitution.  Notice this from the Sixth Amendment to the Constitution,

“have the assistance of counsel for his defence (sic).”
I don’t think it ever entered the minds of the Founders that a political party would take the step of threatening the lawyers so that the enemies of the Tyrant could make no defense.  Your Miranda rights don’t matter anymore because no lawyer will take your case.

The swamp is spreading instead of draining.

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

homo unius libri


  1. We knew that it would be bad. When people have zero morals, they can justify anything, if they even bother.

  2. Ice water in my veins is a good description of the horror I feel every day hearing what is happening.

    1. Good description. I find myself thinking about what it would have been living in Israel during the time of Ahab and Jezebel if I were a devout Jew. The short time is full of bad news. The long time promises victory. Unfortunately we live in the short time.

      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.
