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 2021-148: Headlines: OJ #2

Who was on trial in Minneapolis?  

Maybe “what” is better than “who”.  The American justice system was on trial.  Again.  The American justice system failed.  Again.  I understand that I was not in the courtroom and did not see all the evidence.  All I really needed to know was Floyd was overdosed with a deadly drug, he complained about not being able to breathe before he was held down, being unable to breathe evidently did not keep him from fighting arrest vigorously, Chauvin was using the technique taught him by the police department.  Are there any questions?  

The “who” is the American people.  I know you were not on the jury but we see this kind of thing time and again.  I assume the jury was from the city of Minneapolis and the surrounding area.  These Americans elected the local politicians who made all this possible and they will reelect them.  Keith Ellison was elected by the people of the state of Minnesota.  Maxine Waters, the congresswoman who came and stirred up the mob even more than they were, was elected by the people of California.  Both Ellison and Waters will be reelected if they decide to run.  This is not just an indictment of the jury.  I can understand their fear at proclaiming justice.  This is an indictment of a nation that seems to be willing to put up with this.

George Floyd was a piece of human trash.  The world is better off without him.  With the drug overdose he committed suicide.  I am not sure that Derek Chauvin is any better.  That, however, is not what this trial is supposed to be about.  It was not a personality contest between two men.  It was supposed to be the application of the law in an unbiased way.

We have OJ revisited.  

Stay off the radar.

  1. As I've always said, I knew we were already goners when Clinton was re-elected president.

    1. I guess as a prophet that means we will not need to stone you...this time.

      Grace and peace
