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 2021-080: Should-a-Beens: Joe, Please Call Home

Where is Senator McCarthy when we need him?

I do not personally have a memory of Senator Joe McCarthy.  I do remember that when I heard his name I got the impression he was one step to the right of the devil.  I was told he was an evil man who was out to ruin everyone’s life by labeling them “Communist” and harassing the victims into suicide.  I have never studied his actions in great detail but after I read Witness by Whittaker Chambers, I realized that the people he was after were everywhere and were out to destroy our country.  Communists and Communism is our enemy.

I have weird ideas like that.  I served in the Vietnam War.  I didn’t enlist, I was drafted.  I believed then and still believe that we needed to be there.  See what I mean by strange ideas.  I also believe that the Domino Theory was accurate.  We were there to keep Communism from spreading into the rest of Southeast Asia and then to our back yard.  I also believe that the war was won until the Democrats in congress cut off support for the South Vietnamese government.  They were standing up to the North on their own until we stopped sending them bullets.  My only mistake was that I didn’t realize that the Communists had already arrived and were preparing the United States for what we are seeing today.

Communism, Marxism, Fascism, Socialism, you can get into endless debates about the exact differences.  All are represented in the Progressives* of today.  They are all economic and political systems which hate people being free to make their own decisions.  They all are out to do away with out liberty, destroy Christianity and get us dancing to their tune.  Their lackeys are found in the social media empires that are choking off free expression, the media puppets that only publish what advances the tyranny of the left, government employees who are trying to vilify and jail anyone who disagrees with them.  

What we need is another Joe, not a Biden but a McCarthy, who will stand tall and take on the criminals on the left.  Whoever that hero is will be destroyed in the process but we need him, or her, now.  We need him more than ever.  

Step forward, Joe.

  1. I think what destroyed McCarthy was not HIS actions, but the abuse by the FBI in pretending to be following his lead while destroying Hoover's own personal enemies.

    1. Without disagreeing with your statement I would submit that a major problem was the media. They were left wing subversives even then and twisted the truth to mold the narrative.

      Grace and peace
