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 2013-164: Headlines: Is It Over?

A quick check of the Drudge Report this morning did not show any new reports about the rioting in Sweden.  Does that mean it is over or has the media just become tired of the topic.  After all, riots by “youths” and “immigrants” only plays so long.

I did not read all of the reports but the ones I did read seemed to be missing two key words to understand what was happening.  The two missing words were “Muslim” and “Islam.”  Did you notice?  They gave the countries that the rioters came from, Turkey, Somalia and the Middle East (yes, I know that is not a country).  They never mentioned that Muslims were involved but since these are all areas where it is dangerous to be a Christian or Jew it would seem logical that these people are Muslims.  Since I know how ignorant the children I teach are, I doubt if they put it together that the Middle East is predominately Muslim.

I noticed they did go out of their way to repeatedly say that the rioters were from all kinds of backgrounds and such but there were no pictures I saw or details given about the diverse nature of the hoodlums.  They are probably justified.  They know if they reported that the followers of Mohammed were participating in senseless violence they would themselves be put in the cross-hairs. 

Wake up people.  You may not have long to smell the roses.

  1. Not long, indeed; blood is running in the streets!

    1. And our leaders still act like it isn't happening. It is probably a plot by all those fundamentalist Christians.

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
