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 2021-072: Headlines: Lou who?

I woke up this morning and started my morning routine.  When I came to the phase for checking news sources the first thing I saw was that Lou Dobbs was being removed from Fox.  There were all kinds of explanations given but the basic truth in my mind was that he was saying things they did not like.  I will concede that I have little exposure to Dobbs.  I only watch TV when I am dragged kicking and screaming into the room, the door is locked and I am chained to the chair.  So I have seen him a few times but I have heard him quoted a lot.

It was only a matter of time under the new regime in Washington and the Fox management.  

It is a reminder for us.

If they will come for Lou Dobbs then they will come for any of the talking heads.

It gets better.

If they will come for him they will come for us.  It may be a subtle choking off or a swat team in the middle of the night.  It depends on how it will effect those around you.  The tool of terrorists is not actual damage but the mental state of fear that induces cooperation.  If you are paying attention the Progressives* have censured a congresswoman, threatened senators, isolated a sitting president, done loyalty checks on the military, banned thousands of Americans from expressing their right to free speech on social media, cut off financial resources of businesses and the list goes on.

The only question is, “Where are you on the list and how long will it take them to get you?”

I write this assuming they have not gotten to the low hanging fruit yet.

  1. Our day will come. I expect it may come to doors being kicked down in the middle of the night. When that happens at my house, I'll probably be murdered with a gun in my hand.

    1. Maybe we should all prepare some sort of automatic obituary, maybe a post for "tomorrow" that we keep rescheduling.

      Grace and peace
