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 2016-264: Headlines: Hidden Agendas

The headline I saw on The Washington Times was, “Clinton endorsements by conservative newspapers spark threats, cancellations”.  Since I have a stereotype of newspapers being liberal I thought I would check out The Arizona Republic, one of the designated newspapers.  I didn’t need to look far to have questions raised.

If you look at the banner you see that The Arizona Republican is billed as part of the USA Today network.  Follow my thinking here.  USA Today is not conservative.  It is the mother-ship of this group of newspapers.  Why am I supposed to believe that the Arizona Republican is a conservative newspaper?  Tell me that again?

I will book mark the site and check it out but I am not expecting balance in media.

Later I was looking at a British newspaper and found out that USA Today had announced that Trump was unfit to be president.  At least they are consistent.
