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 2014-198: Tax Dollars At Work: Remodeling a Bathroom Near You

“Mommy, why is that man in our bathroom?  Why does he have that funny smile?” 

In January California implemented its new law about trans-gender bathrooms in public schools.  The thrust of the law was to allow students to go to the bathroom that they felt matched their sexual orientation.  The adults said it would be no problem.  After all, they asked, what boy would want to be found in a girls bathroom.  I did an informal survey and it seems that they all thought it would be a good idea.  The girls were horrified.  The boys were anticipating. 

Nothing had been done to implement the new law at the end of the school year.  It will be interesting to see if any signs have changed when school opens.

It seems it is also coming, or has already come, to a college near you.

The Drudge Report linked to a site called The College Fix that had a post titled, “University to Offer ‘Gender-Open’ Restrooms”. 

It seems the going trend at universities.  And you thought they were for higher education. 

One of the fascinating quotes I found was,
“We received overwhelmingly positive information, and so we went with it,” Devin Moss, the director of Northwestern’s LGBTQ Resource Center, told the Daily Northwestern. “We didn’t really get any major concerns.”
In case you don’t get out much, according to the LGBTQ Pamphlet offered by Texas Tech University it stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning (or Queer).

Yes, even in Texas.

You might begin to ask yourself, “Why is my tax money going to support this kind of foolishness?”
