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 2024-146: Warsaw Lessons

I was reading today an article about some of the Jew hatred going on in the city of New York.  I got to thinking about how Hitler rounded up the Jews in Germany and Poland.  One of the things that he did before rounding them up was to disarm them.

I am guessing that most of the atrocities that we are seeing today filled with hatred towards Jews are taking place in areas where guns are banned.  New York is obvious.  Most of the other variant examples of hatred are on college campuses, which also tend to ban guns.  Once again, American Jews are following the path of their European Brothers.  They are living in areas where they cannot defend themselves.  They do nothing in order to try and defend themselves.  It may be that they forgot the lesson of the Warsaw ghetto.  In that place a small group of Jews withstood the might of the German army because they fought back.  This is probably a bit of a stretch, but I would say that those poorly armed Jews in Warsaw withstood the Wehrmacht better than the nation of France.

Is Jew hatred on the rise?  Yes.  Will we see more of this?  Yes.  Is there an antidote?  Again, yes.  It won’t even require violence, at least not much violence.  Keep in mind that terrorist, and their cronies tend to be cowards.  What is one of the big statements of the gangsta groups, “You better watch your back”.  In other words, they are afraid to face your face.  You might hurt them. All that will be necessary to stop a lot of this nonsense is to convince them that there might be some genuine repercussions coming their way.  If the courts won’t do it, then the citizens must.

The magic of firearms is that they often don’t have to be used in order to be effective.  A hammer in the hardware store will not fix the siding on your house.  A screwdriver in the warehouse will tighten your loose doornobs.  However, a revolver in the drawer will discouraged thugs from coming in your front door.

Abracadabra.  It is magic
