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 2019-250: Sign of the Times

I was reading a post about the midshipmen who gave the okay sign and were labeled as racist.  What got my attention was the one who said, “We didn’t know it was a racist sign.”  Or something to that effect.  The reason they didn’t know it was a racist sign was because it isn’t a racist sign.

Just because the social justice warriors say something is, does not mean it is.  In fact the truth is probably the opposite.  Social justice warriors have a prime goal of destroying Western culture in general and America specifically.  Anything they can do or say to make you back up and throw you off balance is a real plus. 

So feel free to signal okay with your circled fingers.  It is a time honored way of non-verbal communication.  The use as a game was a regular feature in the middle school that employed me and there were few white students on campus.  OK knows no boundaries.  If anyone has a problem then the proper response might be to close your hand and only extend one finger toward them.  I would not do it but it would certainly communicate something they need to understand.

“Racist sign”.  What a bunch of (explicative deleted), piled high and smelling strong.
