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 2018-194: On the Street: Fake News Ratings

Based on my brief exposure to CNN I keep wondering how they get any numbers on the surveys.  I know they are low but not low enough.  Who would waste their time listening to the anti-Trump and anti-traditional values that flows out of the talking heads.  For a week I was forced to block out the CNN nonsense.  My mind was beginning to turn to jelly even though I was not listening. 

Then I realized that the only reason CNN has any ratings left is because they are on in every lobby and waiting room in the country.  I don’t know if you get out enough to notice but you tend to get CNN in every public space.  We try to change it to Fox.  Sometimes we are successful.  Sometimes we are not.  I think there must be some way in which the ratings people count all the victims walking through lobbies, trapped in waiting rooms, crowded into airports and too far away to find the controls.

It could also be that the ratings are as fake as the news.

  1. You have to remember, the snowflakes comprise a sizable audience and they need SOMEONE to lie to them, or they might hear the truth and their poor little heads would explode!

    1. I wonder if they snowflakes of the previous centuries were the peasants or if they all just died off.

      Grace and peace
