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 2021-155: Headlines: Zoning, part 1 of 3, The Infrastructure Is Coming for You

One of the brilliant plans of the Biden administration establishes regulations to break up zoning for single family homes.  Actually it is not new.  Little of what the Proregressives* push is new, just relabeled.

You can go back to the Fair Housing Act of 1968.  Like much legislation it had noble goals.  It made it illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, religion and so forth.  Most can get on board with that.  This was very quickly polluted by the diversity crowd with something called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.  It even had an acronym, AFFH.  Notice the word “affirmative” hiding in the title.  That is affirmative as in “affirmative action” which was the way in which the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was contaminated with reverse racism.  The groundwork was aided by Jimmy Carter with the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977.  This required banks to make bad loans on the basis of race.  The object was to move poor people into neighborhoods they normally could not afford.  Item:  They still could not afford it no matter how much you wish.  When the plan blew up they blamed the banks.  Obama also tried it, but didn’t get very far.  Now it is Biden’s turn.

This time they mean to sneak it by you.  Or just brazenly trumpet the change.  It is part of the plan to destroy the American Dream.  It is part of the bloated Infrastructure Plan being pushed in congress as we breathe.  U.S. News goes into detail.

If you can’t stop people from working hard and buying a home in the suburbs then you take the ghetto to them.  That will show them.  It will get to the place where the only people who can live in a neighborhood they like will be the ones who can afford 100 acre ranches with fences and armed security.  Is it a coincidence that such a description fits the Proregressive* politicians that are pushing this into the books?
