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 2017-031: Headlines: Mystery Killings

One of the things I do as I am waking up is check the weather for the day on my smart phone.  I then scroll down to see what kind of headlines they have decided I am interested in.  One of the leading bits of news was a shooting at a mosque in the French part of Canada.  A couple of observations that reflect on the unrepentant behavior of the media.

Although two people have been arrested there is not word on who they were, what they looked like or what their motive was.  That tells us that it was not white males from the local Baptist church.  I wonder who it could be.  Any suggestions?

They also tried to blame Donald Trump for the killing.  After all, if he had not blocked the easy access of more terrorists then this would not have happened, right?  I am assuming that the terrorists who hit San Bernardino and Paris had the gift of seeing the future.  That must be why they were angry.

To their credit article did note that much of the time this kind of violence is between Sunni and Shia Muslims and they did indicate that it might have been a terrorist act but those comments were many paragraphs down in the article.

It is a shame that six people died from violence.  It is a bigger shame that the media use the tragedy to try to score political points.  It used to be called being a liberal or leftists.  Now it is called being Progressive.

  1. "Progressive" is such an ironic moniker.

    1. I am told that "liberal" used to be the position of today's conservatives. I remember when "gay" meant light-hearted and carefree. One of the methods of cultural transformation is destroying the language. There is actually a school of philosophy for this. I think it is called "deconstruction".

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
