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 2018-054: Being Paranoid

The Nanny State is at work.  I don’t know if you pay any attention to the attempts to shut down Alex Jones and Infowars.  CNN and Google seem to be working to isolate him from his audience.  I am not a fan but he is a needed balance to the nonsense we get in the MSM.

The Nanny State includes all of the deep state people who are working for a World Government, with them in charge of course.  They are doing it for our own good.  Since the elites are, well, elite, they know what is best for us and are working hard to bring us into the promised land.  One of their greatest enemies is the First Amendment to the Constitution.  You have heard about it.  It is the part of our law that says we have the right to speak freely, worship how we want and hand around with whomever we want.

It also says that people can publish whatever they want.  Last time I looked it did not have a qualifier saying only people on the left could speak freely and everyone else needed to be censored.  The left does not seem to accept that.  Even Bloomberg, a source I would never consider conservative, get the point.

The problem is that Google and You Tube are setting themselves up as thought police and trying to filter the content you can reach.  They have always done this.  If you have ever Googled you find adds at the beginning of the list and even the ones who are not labeled as “ads” still paid something to be at the beginning of the queue.  That is business and free enterprise.  Now they are trying to keep political voices that they don’t like from expressing opinions that conflict with their own.

This is probably touching you but you are not aware of it.  A few years ago a site I had visited on occasion was forced off the internet.  I became aware of it because other sites were screaming about it.  It is still gone.  Yesterday I went to one of the political sites I frequent, The Daily Gouge, and was told that it was “temporarily unavailable”.  It told me that if I was the owner of the website to “log in” for additional information.  Did they forget to pay their annual fee for the site?  Did they ask out the boss’s daughter?  Did they say something that the Nanny State did not approve of?  I don’t know and may never know.  My fear is that I am seeing the opening moves of the Google censorship program.  (Now two days later it is back but the content is a week old.)

If my sites disappear or stop posting it could well be that I finally got old and died.  It could also be that the mysterious forces that have removed 1984 and Animal Farm from the schools has gotten around to me.

I should be so important, right?  What about you?

  1. It's all part of the plan, my friend.

    1. You are not making me feel any better. I am going to my safe space.

      Grace and peace
