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 2017-296: Headline: The Attack of the Peeled Banana

I am not sure I can finish reading the article.  I keep falling out of my chair laughing.  The link was on Drudge.  Something about a retreat being cancelled because of a banana peel in a tree.  What?  Environmentalists thinking they found a rare monkey?  Fear it was a new terrorist weapon?  Interior decorators feeling it was a bad color mix?  Retreat members with a banana allergy?  I repeat, “What?”

You can check it out at Campus Reform.  It was none of the above.  The problem was an attack of Snowflake Syndrom.  Even though a student confessed to the dastardly deed, he could not find a trash can, the retreat was cancelled because the “incident made some students uneasy”.

Again I say, “What?”

It seems that this somehow became a terrifying racist incident.  The article talks about “people of color” leaving in tears.

I don’t know if I have ever been to this site before but I have a feeling it is an outgrowth of The People’s Cube or The Onion.  I can’t tell.  I am hoping this is a tongue in cheek commentary written as Hurricane Harvey approaches.  I am fearing that this is real.

What would Genghis Khan think?

  1. I suspect it's real. Just imagine if they'd found a t_rd. Then again, they might have picked it up by the clean end and played with it.

    1. Actually I think you may have a marketing opportunity there.

      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.
