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 2021-115: Give the Devil His Due

Does Governor Cuomo deserve due process?  I know it has been denied to anyone to comes on the radar of our Progressive* overlords, but we still have a Constitution and believe in the rule of law, right?  The left has ignored the restraints of law in their crusade to destroy America.  Should we join in?

Maybe he doesn’t.  The State Senate and Assembly leadership, Democrats no less, have called on the Governor to step down based on the reports we are getting about his alleged sexual harassment of female employees.  That is the Democrat way:  Listen to the rumors, stick your wet finger in the air, and demand that someone act like they are guilty.

Maybe he does.  It seems the Republicans in New York have found a spine and started impeachment proceedings.  The key here is that impeachment is supposed to be for legal violations and is calling for the due process involved in the allegations.  What is really encouraging is that the Republicans in New York seem to have found a spine.  Maybe they have been hanging around with Trump.  Or maybe they just listened to the rumors, stuck their wet finger in the air and decided they could come out and play.

Personally I would like the Democrats to set the example.  File charges.  Take testimony.  Have a trial.  Grant the protections of the Constitution.  Give Cuomo due process.  Let it be a trial by jury instead of a trial by accusation.  Then let the chips fall where they may.  

Maybe the Republican leadership will see it and realize that they can do more than whisper in corners.

Maybe not.

  1. I blame the republicans for most of what has happened in this country. We've all known for 60+ years how crooked the democrats are are and the republicans haven't done one thing to counteract them.

    1. You are right up to a point. At that point I blame the church because so called Christians have compromised and accommodated the sin of the world. I guess you could say we have become sugar instead of salt.

      Grace and peace
