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 2020-157: New Terms: A Yogi

I has been years since I read Thomas Sowell’s The Vision of the Anointed.  If I remember correctly he makes the point that the group of people that I label Progressives* have a sense that they are anointed by something bigger than God with a specialness enabling them to know what is best for other people.  They think that rules are for the little people and walk around repeating the toddler mantra to themselves, “I’m big.”  As our betters they will decide what we can do and what would harm us.  We are expected to be grateful. 

Recently I mentioned a judge who said, “The action that I’m taking today may be pushing the legal bounds a little bit,...”  What that means is he knows the rules but, since he is smarter than the common man, he is going to ignore them.  Of course it is for our own good.  I think we might need a new term for this and suggest calling it having “a Yogi”. 

It has been years since I have watched the cartoons but I remember that Yogi always thought he was smarter than the average bear.  With him it was picnic baskets.  With our modern Progressive* Yogi’s it is every liberty you have that makes them feel insecure in their righteousness. 

Does that make us Bobo or the Ranger?

It can have variations such as “being Yogied” and “Yogi talk”.  It could be used with great frequency.
