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 2013-353: Headlines: Media Breakthrough, Media Blindness, part 1 of 2

Things must be really bad, the media is noticing.

When I turned on the radio yesterday morning to check the traffic the lead story was the economy and the new jobs projected.  Let me start with the second thing that jumped out at me.  This is the breakthrough.  It was the most startling because it seemed like the media heads and voices might be actually paying attention.  Nah, probably just a fluke.  It came when they quoted the government statistics on job creation and then inserted something that sounded like, “...if you can believe the numbers the government is giving us.”  At that point I felt like a character in The Music Man who said, “I think she’s got it.”

It is a miracle when a member of the Biased Class recognizes something that the rest of us have known for a long time.  The government lies.  This current administration has set new levels of low when it comes to lies. 


To be continued...
