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 2017-058: A New View of “Dis”

For those of you who only speak to people with high school educations one of the popular words of the month is “dis”.  It is understood as “disrespect”.  When you dis someone you don’t show them the respect that our society of diversity and multiculteralism says they should have.

I am thinking that is not strong enough.  Disrespect does not really get the nuances or outright contempt that I would like to show.  Might I suggest some substitutes?  How about despise?  I guess that would be “des” rather than “dis”.  It doesn’t matter, they can’t spell anyway and make up words on a whim of ignorance.  Try on disregard or distance.  Maybe disgraceful would be a good idea to get across.  Disgust anyone?

When I see a guy shading his eyes from the sun while his hat is on backwards, I am afraid that I dis him.  When I see him with pants that he has to hold up with two hands when he wants to hurry and he can only take baby steps because the crotch is so low, I dis.  I definitely dis.  When I see a young “lady” with so much material missing from her chest that it is clear she is advertising and she wants to be respected, all I can say is, “Dream on”.  When I see an ex-president who will not allow himself to step back and admit his party lost, I am afraid that dissing isn’t strong enough.

I can handle man buns and metrosexual as long as you don’t require a straight face.  I got used to bellbottoms.  After all you can get haircuts, shave and cut off the pants for shorts.  I am not sure what you do with a body covered with tattoos. 

Of course, they probably laugh at me.  I can deal with that too.  It is wonderful living in a country with no sumptuary laws and some freedom of speech.  I am happy to be weird to you.

If variety is the spice of life we are living in the day of firehouse chili.

  1. LOL - There now: don't you feel better?

    1. I do until I realize that they don't care what I think.

      Grace and peace.
