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 2011-354, Discernment Watch: Santa Claus Is a Woman

Since I am writing about the season let me point out something that most people miss.  Santa Claus must be a woman.  How can this be? 

First of all, it helps if you live in the People’s Republik of Kaliforino.  English is almost a second language here.  It might actually be third or fourth, but who’s counting.  You pick up a bit of knowledge in this atmosphere.  One of the things you learn is that Spanish has masculine and feminine endings to words.

The masculine word for saint is “san.”  Thus we have San Francisco, San Bernardino, San Gabriel.  The feminine word is “santa.”  Thus we have Santa Barbara and Santa Ana.  Now, put two and two together.  Santa Claus uses the feminine ending, thus Santa Claus must be a woman. 

It seems to simple when you think about it.

Now who is going to tell Mrs. Claus?

  1. Yeah, and when you throw in the beard, it either cements the idea that "he's" a cross-dresser, or a good candidate for a side-show!

  2. Georges, You forgot to add, "Not that there is anything wrong with that." Or did you forget?

    Ralph, I may be one of the reasons that a lot of kids cry when forced to sit on his lap at the mall.

    Grace and peace.
