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 2012-68, Should-a-Beens: Sarah Palin and Russia

Here is another headline I would like to see,
“Talking Heads Admit Russia Is Close to Alaska”
Remember how Sarah Palin said, “I can see Russia from my front porch”?  Then you have an interesting memory because she did not say that.  It was Tina Fay on Saturday Night Live in a parody of Palin.  To be honest, it was funny on SNL.  I like Palin.  It was still funny.  Humor is good and poking fun at politicians is healthy.  What is sick is allowing the media to convince us that Palin said it.

It might be a good time to go back and read the entire interview, not just the edited version and see what she really said.  Then the L.A. Times and the networks could send a team of reporters up to Alaska armed with maps and atlases.  They might charter and airplane and fly out over the Bering Straits and discover what the governor of Alaska, and any middle school student who has been paying attention, knows:  Alaska is close to Russia.

When I see that headline, maybe I will be willing to get a subscription to the Times.

And maybe not.
