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 2021-286: The Language War

I wish America would wake up to their language being destroyed just like the Republic is going down in flames.  The current word that is lighting my fuse is “moderate.”  

There are two examples of this that are glaring and obvious, also ignored.  The first is the current occupant of the office of Attorney General of the United States.  I won’t mention his name.  A few years ago he was being considered for the Supreme Court.  We were told to go ahead and give him a hearing, after all, he was a “moderate.”  He said a lot of nice words and sounded like he knew that the Constitution existed.  Based on what we see him doing in pushing the Proregressive* agenda I would say we dodged a big one there.  He may be in power but it might be limited to four years instead of life.  You may not like the ones we got for the court but they are not such lunatics as this “moderate.”

The second is more current.  Congress is trying to pass legislation that is designed to leave them rich and the country at a Venezuela level.  Every day I read some new bit of skulduggery that is included in the bill.  The Democrats who are holding it up are called “moderates.”  I have seen the term in articles and in memes.  If they are moderate then most of the country is so far to the left that we deserve what they want to get us.

To most people a moderate position is somewhere in the middle between two extremes.  There have been times in our history when a moderate position represented where most Americans stood.  Now it would legitimately be between the communism of the Democrats and the desire to be free of government control which does not include the Republican elites.  There might be few there but it would still be moderate.  

The position that the media is trying to convince you is “moderate” is very far to the left.  It is the difference between $3.5 and $1 trillion.  Even the lower number is mainly pork to feed the groups that are in the pockets of the shadow government.  They are not moderate.  They remind me of the school administrators who would give me a choice and I would clarify what they were asking me:  Do I want to be shot or hung?

Maybe I am totally wrong.  Maybe people are waking up.  If the election of 2022 ends up making any difference we need to vote the suckers out.  We need to get serious before the round-ups begin and the camps are being filled.
