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 2014-191: Headlines: Deluxe Affirmative Action

It may be time to withdraw funding from public higher education. 

What you will read if you go to this article is a pretty clear statement of where educators are in their values and priorities. 

The point of the article is that colleges should award grades with a strict adherence to affirmative action.  Grades would be awarded based on the color of your skin, not on the work you do.

Years ago Willie Brown, Speaker of the California Assembly, tried to get an early version of this through in California.  Although race had long been a factor in admissions, he wanted to make graduation also an affirmative action celebration.  For some reason he was not successful.  Of course, that was California then.  I live in California now.

We need something like the old Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval when it comes to doctors and mechanics.  Of course that would not be allowed by the ACLU, but a man can dream. 

I would be in favor of withdrawing all tax dollars from public colleges and universities.  Put them up for sale.  Let them sink or swim.  I really don’t need a waiter with a college diploma anyway.
