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 2021-320: Headlines: Nothing Botched Here

I keep coming across references that the prosecution in the Rittenhouse case have “botched” their case.  I see it even in the conservative sites that should know better.  We need to realize that they have not “botched” anything.  They have done the best they can to frame someone with nothing to back their accusations.  I would say that they have done a supreme job of trying to nail jello to the wall.

Yes, Kyle Rittenhouse is innocent.  It has been clear since the videos have always shown it clearly.  He was hounded, harassed and attacked.  He simply defended himself when the people charged with defending citizens decided to take a coffee break, and then had an extra donut.  If he is not acquitted then the jury system is useless.

Every since the OJ trial I have had questions about juries.  I gave that group the benefit of the doubt because I did not pay much attention to the evidence.  I assumed they saw something I didn’t.  Then you have the Chauvin trial.  There was plenty of evidence that George Floyd was killed by an overdose of drugs.  The mobs in the streets made it impossible for the jury to be honest.  The comments by politicians did little but stir up the low information thinkers.  Again it was impossible for him to get a fair trial.  The Republic is under trial.  Will the citizens stand up or are we doomed to trial by riot?

As I write I wait for the results.  I have hope that justice will be done but also I have a low view of my fellow citizens.  By the time this is posted it may all be over.

Or it may be just beginning.
