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 2017-271: Headlines: The New Russia

For months the media has been beating the dead Russian horse looking for traction.  They now have a special prosecutor working for them so they have finally moved on.

The new focus will be Charlottesville.  President Trump needs to learn that he cannot win on this one.  His original statement was good enough.  He did not need to get any more elaborate.  I notice that he finally did name the requisite groups but I also notice that he left all the haters on the left out of the equation.  The formula will never work unless all the variables are accounted for.  We need tit for tat.  Taking the three specifics that the president used in the Washington Times article, I will supply some suggested equivalents that seem to have been overlooked.

For KKK we need the Nation of Islam
For Neo Nazi we need Black Lives Matter
For white supremacists we need black power advocates

Of course these might be included in the “other hate groups” he mentioned.  I certainly hope so and I hope he stirs the water again by naming names.
