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 2021-050: Let Me Reword That

I think the author of The Manhattan Contrarian understands the mistake he is making in the following statement,

“Note to Biden and/or whoever comes after him: you can’t keep a divided nation together by force and coercion -- not for long. If Americans want to live in a united country, we need a renewed sense of common ideals and principles. The principle of maximizing human freedom is the best option available, because it has the potential to create cohesion while also allowing for disagreement.”
I just don’t think that is his point at the moment.  He will probably address it later.

Since he is not here, let me address it.  One of the popular delusions perpetuated by our media overlords is that the Progressives in control of the sources of power and influence want a “united country”.  No, the do not want a “renewed sense of common ideals and principles.”  What they want is the destruction of the United States.  If that were not the plan they would not be doing everything they can to cause the insurrection they say they fear.  

The massive peaceful protest in Washington D.C. was totally ignored with the mantra that there was a violent riot in the Capitol.  Really?  Show me the destroyed buildings.  Show me the destroyed businesses.  Where are the fires?  Where are the many examples of vicious violence perpetuated by Antifa and BLM as they destoryed a number of American cities in what was constantly referred to as “mostly peaceful” protests.

List the “panicked” talking heads of Congress:  Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell, et. al.  They were not panicked.  They were disappointed that they were not yet able to prod the sleeping giant of American into a place where they can use the Insurrection Act.


They will keep trying.  They are going to have a Kangaroo trial to remove a man from office who has already left.  He followed the procedure as is provided by the rule of law.  They are moving to remove from office every elected official who does not agree with their program.  They are mobilizing big business to make it impossible for non-party business to do banking or communicating.  I would laugh if the fools were not so self-righteous:  Students at Harvard are agitating to rescind the diplomas of everyone they disagree with.  Some day soon you may find that your bank or credit card company has decided not to do business with you.

They will just keep pushing.

  1. If they do decide not to do business with me, they will, of course, keep my money. After all, I didn't build that.

    1. And when inflation makes the money worthless we may get the last laugh.

      Grace and peace

    2. Hah! Good point, though it would be sort of a Pyrrhic victory.


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.
