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 2022-252: Assault on Common Sense

I just saw a brief snippet of President Biden sharing his goal about getting rid of all assault weapons in this country.  He is actually doing a good job if I understand the multiple reports about raiding America’s defense stockpile to send our “reserves” to Ukraine.  I would guess that he included all of our assault weapons for the Ukrainians to lose to the Russians.

Actually what got my attention was that he is not after our privately owned assault weapons.  That would be like appropriating our own personal IRS agents.  You see, what Americans own are not assault rifles but defense rifles.  When I went through basic training we learned how to use the M-16, an assault rifle.  When in Vietnam I was issued an M-16, an assault rifle.  There are significant differences between an M-16 and an AR 15.  It goes beyond the black color and hand grips.

It is comforting to know that when they come for us most of the competent warriors will have been driven out of government service.  We have these nightmares of Seal Team Six showing up at our front door.  In reality it will be more like the Keystone Cops or Gomer Pyle and friends.  If there are enough of them they could do some damage but it is a good bet that they will get lost on the way to your house.  

I hear there are pink stocks you can get for your long guns.
