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 2022-009: Critical Mass: Censorship Is Deadly

Today I saw a headline that a member of the United States House of Representatives was permanently banned from Twitter.  According to Red State it was for something called a “Covid-19 misinformation policy.”  I understand she was guilty of repeated some of CDC’s own statistics.  This is a growing problem as the Proregressives* try to control the flow of information in order to keep the masses in their pocket.  We all remember when social media kicked the serving President of the United States off.  Daily we read about doctors and professors who are cancelled because they speak out.  When the left did it they called it “speaking truth to power” with the idea that they were doing something bold and brave.  Since the traditional patriotic Americans have never been fans of censorship and in my memory coercion has never been an acceptable choice, I am not sure that they were brave or bold.  

Not so when the left is in charge.  Deplatforming.  Pink slips.  Detoxing.  Vaccination passports.  Locked up in a D.C. jail.  The list of aggressive attacks on anyone who dares to speak out is continually growing.  At what point will it reach a flash point?  Will it ever reach a flashpoint?  Are there enough Americans that value their freedom?  

Every time I see our traditional freedoms stomped into the mud by the left I get angry.  I doubt I will ever get angry enough to get violent.  I have these Bible verses about turning the other cheek that keep popping up but I wouldn’t mind being on the jury when people who lose it come to trial.

We are running out of time.
