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 2018-059: Headlines: I Hope It Serves Them Right

Reports coming out of California often catch my eye.  You may have heard about the $1,000 fine to servers who offer diners a straw.  Now we have a suggestion for the menu for that strawless consumer.  The name of the dish sounds healthy, nutria.  In reality they are big rodents, read rats, that were imported into the country to be raised for their fur.  Since fur is out they may now be harvested for the meat under the fur. 

This could be a win for many people.  The hunters would be encouraged because the nutria will destroy the wetlands of the environmentalists.  People who protest the grain fed to cattle to produce prime rib would save even more grain by dining on nutria fillets. 

So next time you visit the People’s Republik you may need to add nutria to the cuisine you are going to sample.  Along with the nuts, flakes, fruits and sushi you can have a nutria taco.
