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 2017-387: A Howler of the Week

After the repeated frustration of trying to find a source of news that is not rabidly left wing I went to Google to see if there were any conservative newspapers.  I took a quick look and bookmarked a few.  In my search I came across this howler at a site called Quora.
“The major U.S. newspapers do not represent a very broad ideological spectrum because the ethics of U.S. journalism include attempting to be fair and even-handed in all matters and because they are financed by wealthy people. At best they range between just barely center-left and fairly far into the right -- essentially pro-capitalist, with leanings toward reform or toward laissez faire.”
With that kind of a lead in, why would I bother reading any farther?

When I get done laughing and run out of screams I may try again.
