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 2015-73: New Definition of Subversive

Keep in mind that media bias is not an American exclusive.

As I was skimming Drudge headlines a link caught my eye.  The article, from something called the International Policy Digest, was talking about the rise of a conservative politician in France.  You did not need to read far to notice loaded terms like “far right” and “controversial past.”  What got my attention was the third paragraph.
“None of this changes the fact that her political agenda remains subversive. She calls for an end to the EU and has adopted policies critical of the French allies, backing Putin’s annexation of Crimea. She also wants to raise wages and pensions, restore the retirement age to 60, as well as establish border controls and reinstate the death penalty.”
Notice the interesting definition of “subversive.”  It is subversive to call for an end for the EU and to criticize French policy. 

I guess if you are from the left this makes sense but to me it is called freedom of speech and freedom of expression. 

This is editorial rather than reporting.  Welcome to media bias.

  1. I doubt if we'll ever see true reporting again in our lifetime.

    1. And we seem to be too lazy to do the research to get to the truth.

      Grace and truth
