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 2014-240: On the Street: Me and the Times

On Thursday I acquired a copy of the L.A. Times.  Don’t worry, I didn’t pay for it.  I didn’t steal it either.  Someone left it on the table where I stop for breakfast.  I could tell that it had been left by a liberal for several reasons. 

First, no conservative would buy the L.A. Times unless it was for a project in media bias.

Second, the person who left the rag did not clean up after himself.  At Panera they have a place for you to take your trash.  You are invited to police your own table but it is not required.  In return you usually don’t leave a tip.  Most liberals fall into two groups.  The first are Romney’s 47%.  They don’t pay any taxes.  Many live on a combination of EBT cards and the cash economy.  They are used to other people paying the bills and doing the work.  They tend to trash the places they have been.  I see it every day in school.  The second group are the elites.  They tend to be wealthy people who have housekeepers.  Sure, the housekeepers are illegal but laws are only made for the huddled masses, yearning to breathe free.  They expect their minions, those of us who work for a living, to pick up after them.

The third reason I assume it was a liberal reader was that they did not get past the first page.  Buying the Times was part of a daily ritual.  It is kind of like all the people who bought the books that Barak Obama wrote.  They put them in conspicuous places but few people read them.  In regard to the Times, they already knew what it would say so why read it, but if they didn’t buy it they would need to surrender their man cards. 

After 24 hours I have not opened it.  I may trash it unperused if the front page is any indication of what it contained.  The lead article was about a woman driven to a new mission in life by the drought.  The second largest spread dealt with sexual misconduct in the University of California.  That probably involves a professor who believed in monogamy and was being faithful to his wife.  Also headlined was a sports article and one showing concern about who would get the Ebola vaccine.  I assume this means after the politicians and Sierra Club.  There was a narrow column that mentioned arming the Syrian rebels.

It is almost as if the military budget of China, the invasion of Ukraine and the warlords of Africa were just figments of someone’s imagination.

If I find anything important in this edition I will share it with you. 

Don’t hold your breath.
