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 2023-223: Old Time Solutions

When I was a kid I was taught that the police were my friend.  We watched Dragnet, Perry Mason, 77 Sunset Strip and a long string of shows that told us life was fair and we had a bright future.  

I guess I have grown up to face reality or reality has been changed.  Either way I am watching the heroes of the FBI become KGB operatives.  I want to avoid any brush with the court system because all the ones that make the news are agents of the Fascists in charge.  There seems to be nothing left to do.  People are talking revolution and civil war.  Those generally don’t work out very well.

I have a suggestion that might help:  Bring back the tradition of dueling.

I have been interested in the click bait about a fight between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.  I don’t think it will ever happen but it shows the possibilities.  If you could call someone out instead of needing to hire a lawyer then we might see a lot of things change.  

Who would not like to see Donald Trump challenge Merrick Garland to a duel.  If he was the challenger then Garland could pick the weapons.  A dawn meeting could be televised with the proceeds to pay for funeral expenses.  Of course Garland might choose air-soft pistols at 100 yards but you get the idea.  

Think of all the government officials we could deal with and not have to worry about going to jail.  It might make some judges think twice before they ignored the law.

I am sure details would need to be worked out but it could keep the republic from disintegrating.
