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 2016-70: Are You Hetrophobic?

How do you answer when someone asks you if you are “homophobic”?  If it has never happened then you don’t get out much.  It is like calling someone “racist”.  It is meaningless as used and has nothing to do with what is going on, but it changes the conversation and puts you on the defensive.  If you let it.

I choose to reject the manipulation.  So, when a student raises her hand in the middle of a conversation on the Electoral College and asks me, “Are you homophobic”, I have answers ready.

My favorite?  I ignore their question and ask “Are you hetrophobic?”  My theory is that if you can have an artificial term made up by the homosexual lobby you should also have an artificial term coined by the non-homosexual lobby.

Not wanting to learn anything new, she kept asking the question.  I kept repeating my response.  Eventually she gave up and we moved on.  It is amazing how people who don’t want to think try to derail you by asking the latest politically correct question.  I don’t like to play their game.  Instead I change it to my game.

Are you heterophobic?
