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 2013-253: Headlines: Red Herrings to the Right of Me...

When I went on the Drudge Report this morning one of the headlines Read “Gay Athletes Could Be Prosecuted at '14 Winter Olympics...”  If I Were a homosexual I would not be too worried. 

Why not be worried?  I am one of those right wing, red necked, bigoted people who believe that homosexuality is not normal.  Homosexual sexual activity is a sin.  If you ask me I will tell you.  The thing is, unless you ask me you will probably never know how I feel about this sin just as you will not know how I feel about other sins such as gossip, adultery, slander, theft, etc. 

To my knowledge this headline was written by, and distributed by, a group of journalists who are on board for the homosexual agenda.  The reason they are publishing stuff like this is to stir up hatred and division.  I don’t know of anyone in my circle who would come up with the idea of prosecuting or persecuting homosexual athletes at the Olympics.  I work with homosexuals.  It has never been an issue.  I had a tremendous waiter the other day who appeared to be as gay as the apparel in the Christmas Carol "Deck the Halls."  He did an excellent job. 

This is a red herring perpetuated by the haters in the media not by supposed haters in the Christian community.  If you read the article you will find that it is exclusively a Russian thing and is mainly noise by a local politician. 

Read with care.  Always think, consider the source and ask the motivation.

  1. If they're really worried, they just shouldn't go to Russia. I can guarantee that their tactics won't work there.

    1. They may find that we are not such haters as they claim. The article seems to be concerned about public decorum more than sexual preference.

      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.
