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 2022-326: Headlines: The Other Shoe Is Dropped

It is time to see how the shoe fits when it is on the other foot.  A recent post on Gateway Pundit shared the story of a restaurant in Virginia that turned away a Christian group.  They cancelled reservations for a event when they learned that the group was Christian and, horror of horrors, actually took Biblical stands on moral issues.  They were unwelcomed.

I have two conflicting responses to this.  First, as a rule-of-law, Constitutional patriotic American I salute their rights guaranteed, or at least promised, in the First Amendment guaranteeing freedom of speech and freedom of association.  If they don’t want to serve certain people then more power to them.  As much as I agree with the group that was rejected I accept the rights of others and would not want to spend my money at an establishment that rejected basic moral principles.

On the other hand, I am tired of the cherry picking that goes on under the disguise of justice.  If a baker can go through years of trials and intimidation because he does not want to bake a gay cake then I would suggest if we are under the rule of law that this restaurant needs to go through the same gamut.  I know, it doesn’t work that way.  Justice is a joke and the law is a one way door.

But I can dream.

My guess is that this will never make the front pages of the MSM and will certainly not be addressed by the DOJ.

I hope that I am proved wrong.
