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 2015-128: Discernment Watch: Hit Man or Road Rage

I can’t remember which on-line newspaper I saw it on but it seems that someone shot George Zimmerman as he was driving down the street.  The bullet went through the window.  The article said he was not seriously injured.

The headline laid the blame on “road rage”.  There was nothing in the article to give any substance to that headline.  It seems more of an editorial comment than reporting.  It would seem to me that this could have been one of the many vigilantes in the country who did not like the acquittal of Zimmerman and have committed themselves to shooting him on sight. 

It is dangerous to be considered not-guilty by a jury of your peers when the thug media has already condemned you.  We see this repeatedly.  The media smells blood and ratings and begins to report only part of the news and even make things up to stir the mobs to action.  As the truth begins to come out the thinking public reevaluates but the mob yells coverup.  Remember the Duke lacrosse players being accused of rape?  Probably.  Do you remember that eventually the prosecutor was prosecuted for making much of it up?  Probably not.  Keep in mind that this could be any one of us.  I don’t know George Zimmerman but I know he was pronounced “not-guilty” by people who heard all the evidence.
