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 2021-061: Cornerstone Considerations: CUSA, III, Can We Talk?, Part 2 of 2

Again we consider the definition of treason from the Constitution,

“Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”
The definition does not stop at talk about actual war.  It goes on to include “adhering” and helping America’s enemies.

Who are America’s enemies?  Is it anyone I disagree with?  Obviously not, or at least it is obvious to me.  I am not sure it is obvious to the Progressive voices of censorship and reeducation camps.  Years ago when I was drafted to serve in Vietnam I was required to take an oath.  In that oath were the words, "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;...”  I didn’t think much about it at the time but now I am more concerned about our domestic enemies than the foreign.

What is a domestic enemy?  Domestic is obviously juxtapositioned to foreign.  It refers to the home grown type of person who wants to destroy the country.  Obama would not qualify as a traitor for wanting to fundamentally transform the United States.  After all, he was elected and was clear about what he wanted to do.  The part where he might be considered a domestic enemy was his rule by fiat, commonly called executive order.  He openly admitted he was going around the power invested in the legislature.  That was crossing a line.  I don’t think that was the method of transforming the country people were open to.  It is the same type of thing we see going on in Washington today.  

At one point in time the Communist Party was outlawed in the Untied States.  I don’t know its current status.  The reason it was outlawed was not because it was Communist but because it was advocating the violent overthrow of the legal government of the United States.  

I am sure that the Progressives in control of the media, education and intelligence agencies will be labeling everyone who believes in the Constitution as treasonous.  They want to make the violent preservation of the legal government treason.  I think they already are labeling anyone they disagree with this way.

History is written by the victors.  We are in a battle for the soul of our nation.  Who will write the history books of our grandchildren?
