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 2015-53: Headlines: Why Don’t Moderate Muslims Speak Out?

Let’s assume there are moderate Muslims.

Let’s assume they do not approve of the violence perpetrated in the name of Mohammad.

Why don’t they speak out.

For an explanation go to the Website for Fox5NY and read about the blogger who was hacked to death in India for speaking out against the violence.

You will find a similar story on Powerline.

The man was hacked to death for daring to speak of tolerance and freedoms that we take for granted.  His wife almost died in the same encounter.  He was not a Muslim.  He was not in a Muslim controlled country.  He was in India that is predominantly Hindu with a large group minority of Muslims and Sikhs, and a few Christians. 

It was the Muslims who sought him out and executed him.

And you expect someone to speak out against the violence in a country run by the violent?  Do you still leave things under your pillow for the tooth fairy?

They are quiet because they know what a “religion of peace” Islam really looks like.
