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 2017-097: Ignoble, Ignorant, Incompetent

I usually say “evil, ignorant or stupid” but I think I have used those terms before.  Whatever the words the choice is still there.  I keep hearing people make excuses for others.  They will talk about how they are really good people but they don’t understand.  When the person being described is well educated and well read that doesn’t wash. 

Take any issue from global warming to abortion.  There is plenty of evidence.  It can be found with a little looking and a little thinking.  That is true even in a day of fake news.  When someone claims that voter ID is a racist idea you need to ask yourself who is the racist.  Is the racist the one who wants honest elections or the one who assumes that minorities are too helpless to have ID?  How in the world do you think they cash checks?  I had to show my ID three times yesterday just going through the business of the day.  It seems racist to me to think that because someone is black and poor they can’t function without the Democrats to protect them.

I am sorry.  Many of these people are either evil, ignorant or stupid.  Take your pick.  If that is too insensitive then go with ignoble, ignorant or incompetent.  They are not just nice people who are wrong.

  1. As long as it garners votes, they'll keep doing it.

    1. Maybe it is time to stop being polite.

      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.
