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 2023-183: Cornerstone Considerations: D of I, Banana Justice

As I read through the Declaration of Independence I came across this complaint,

“For depriving us, in many Cases, of the Benefits of Trial by Jury:”
There are a number of ways you can deprive someone of the “benefit”.  The most recent example is the accusations of the patriots who made the mistake of trusting the policemen who invited them into the capital.  I have not followed the events called trials but I can imagine how the jury would be selected, evidence manipulated and law interpreted by a judge that was interested in political show trials more than law and justice.  It was blatant in the Congressional hearings.  I assume that the courts had no more evidence so it must have continued.

Did they get a fair trial?

Or take the police that took down George Floyd and kept him from rampaging through the city.  With all of the media circus, threats toward the jury by the mobs, refusal for change of venue and other clown acts, do you really feel the trials had anything to do with justice?

Donald Trump has been harassed by everyone with a law degree and a government paycheck.  He is being dragged through the courts while the same judicial system ignores the blatant crimes by their Democrat handlers.  Does this have anything to do with any kind of justice except banana justice?

You know the kinds of things I am talking about.

Maybe it is time to read the first paragraphs again.
