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 2016-192: Headlines: Ignore the Man Behind the Curtain

You have been hearing about the shooting in Munich.  What I read in the Telegraph had 18 people killed.  Three observations:

He was probably a Muslim since he is repeatedly identified as German Iranian.  It said he was born and raised in Germany which fits in with the current crop of home grown terrorists.  They are often young men who were born in the west and have never been able to bring their religion into sync with the culture around them.  The article repeatedly mouthed the mantra of “no links to ISIS” but you need to remember that the same thing was said about the killer in Nice.  Remember how our Attorney General tried to sanitize the Orlando killer.  When the killers go out screaming Allah Akbar our political leaders keep saying they can’t understand the motive.  At least one witness says the Munich killer yelled “Allah akbar”.

He was under treatment for depression like so many of the mass shooters.  I have not done the research but I keep seeing reference to the number of these rampage killers who have been taking the medications associated with depression.  This really needs to be looked into.

He was bullied.  This is another mantra of the left.  The big problem is bullying, not terrorism.  This is part of the brainwashing going on in our public schools.

The story will fade from our short memories.  The killings will continue.  May you stay safe.

  1. We need to rename Germany into "Germanistan".

    1. Consider it done but remember when they come for us you will be ahead of me in the line.

      Grace and peace.
