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 2012-69, Headlines: The Media Justice System Strikes Again

You have all heard about the shooting in Florida.  I don’t watch TV or listen to the radio but everyone I know is telling me all about it.  The “facts” fly fast and furious.  The source of the facts are a bunch of race-baiters in the news and the political class that are trying to stir up the country for their own gain.  The media wants to increase ratings and doesn’t care about the truth.  Think Haditha.  Think Duke University.  Think Afghanistan.  Think.  I put that last in to wake you up.

The political class wants to stir up class warfare and racial hatred so that they can have an issue in the next election.  I am sure that if we look back in history we can find other examples, but this is the government we have and it is ugly to watch in real life.

What do we really know?  A man was shot and killed.  Beyond that all is rumor and gossip.  It is time to step back, take a deep breath and let the justice system take its course.  We don’t need a media lynching.  We don’t need a media whitewash.  What we need is a careful investigation, due process and the belief that a man is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Or did I miss something?
