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 2022-079: Headlines: March Madness in February

Today the Soviet Union, excuse me, Russia invaded the sovereign country of Ukraine.  The original justification was that the people living there were really Russian and were calling out for relief from the persecution of the Ukraine government.  At first Putin said he was going to guarantee the safety of those provinces.  Now we have a full scale invasion.  Or we think we do.  Keep in mind that we are getting all our information from sources controlled by the Proregressives*.

Now take a breath and see if you can look back a few years to February 20, 2014.  What is this?  Is the Soviet Union, excuse me, Russia invading another area that is part of the sovereign country of Ukraine, the Crimea?  It would seem so.

Take another breath and see if you can look back a few more years to August 1, 2008.  What is this?  Is the Soviet Union, excuse me, Russia invading the sovereign country of Georgia?  For those were not listening in school this is the country Georgia on the border with Russia, not the state in our country between Florida and South Carolina.  That invasion may come, but not yet.  The reason Russia invaded Georgia was the same rational that they used in Ukraine.

Take another breath and look back to March 7, 1936.  The military might of Nazi Germany entered the Rhineland.  Guess why?  The same reason they later invaded Czechoslovakia and Austria and any other place they wanted to visit.  Strangely enough their logic was the same as Putin.

I would wonder how many totalitarians in history have used this kind of logic.  Or they might have had even more clever themes.  Putin may smile and act like a responsible leader.  The press may give him excuses.  It appears that he is just another in a long list of empire builders.  My guess is that Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia are next.

It is great to have a strong leader in the White House.  (For you liberals that was a joke.)
