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 2014-4: Kinks to the Right of Me, Kinks to the Left of Me

Back in December I had the car radio on for some reason.  I caught a story about a 22 year old who has been arrested for having sex with his neighbor’s dog.  I would have just let that roll over my consciousness but there was a twist, or what I consider a twist.  Maybe it was a kink.  The charge being brought against the young man was cruelty to animals. 

You read that right. 

There was not a hint of outrage about sodomy or morality.  The outrage was over cruelty to animals.  It may have been cruel, but is that the big issue?  Perhaps it was a consenting relationship.  Was the dog a minor in doggy years? 

What a world.  My guess is that he was not a Republican.

  1. You're right; if he was a republican, they would have mentioned it.I've known from the beginning that gay marriage would eventually lead to legal sex with children ans animals. We're already seeing the first stirrings.

    1. And when it happens, we will be labelled as haters because we are so narrow minded.

      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.
