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 2021-068: Bounced Checks and Loaded Balances, part 2 of 3

We had a system of checks and balances.  

How is all that working out today?  The three branches of government seem to be in lock step.  We have had this before.  FDR had a lock on everything but the Supreme Court and when they resisted he threatened to appoint more justices.  Sound familiar?  His one party government managed to take a recession and turn it into an ongoing depression.  It was so bad it is referred to as “The Great Depression”.  One strong theory is that they could have kept the economy in the tank for years and would have done so if not forced to gear up for World War II.  It gave them a way to advance the socialist agenda with little interference.  Unfortunately for them they could not ignore the treat to their power offered by the national socialists of another country.  Like today, the administration of FDR was infiltrated with what we would call Progressives*.  

Then you had the two years that Obama had unchecked power.  He managed to get through Obamacare.  When the Supreme Court had a chance to adjust the mandate, John Roberts found out that congress did not mean what it said in regard to it being a tax.  Obama worked hard with his identity politics to divide us as a people.  Remember those moving words, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”?  When Obama was talked into meeting with heads of the so-called opposition party, he smugly said, and I paraphrase from memory, “Elections have consequences.  We won.”  So much for working together.  Now we are back to that kind of dictatorial leadership.  Biden talks unity and acts division.
