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 2022-128: Headlines: A New Solution to the Refugee Problem

We are not the only country having a problem with immigration but Americans tend to be very self centered so we don’t realize there are people fleeing all over the world.  I was interested in a link on The Daily Wire that brought up a response being proposed in England.

It seems that Great Britain has worked out a deal with Rwanda.  Illegal immigrants will be sent to Rwanda along with some payments to help their adjustments.  There was a lot of information left out but I think the idea was to make them settle permanently in that African country.  I would have serious questions about the choice of Rwanda.  Do the terms Hutu and Tutsi ring any bells?  They are the two main tribes in Rwanda and had been killing each other at least as far back as 1952.  That eventually led to what is called the Rwanda Genocide in 1994.  We are talking about 800,000 deaths and millions of refugees.  I am hoping that things have settled down to make it safe for the people Great Britain wants to deport.  

Is this something that would work for us?  We are spending uncounted billions in supporting all the illegals that are swamping our safety nets.  Is there a country somewhere in the world that would open its borders to these people if we sweetened the pot a little?  Maybe we could help them resettle in the Vatican.

It also makes me wonder if there are countries that would benefit by the influx of some of these refugees.  That is an honest question that would like an honest answer but doesn’t expect to get one.  I personally don’t see this movement of people working.  We can only hope.  They seem to have none.
