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 2020-207: Destructive Forces, Part 1 of 3

We have a growing number of ways in which the Progressives* are trying to divide and conquer.  They are using race, income, religion and all kinds of made up fantasies such as white privilege.  The one that has been the most destructive has been going on for years.  We are being sunk by the feminization of America.  Actually you could say it is going on around the world.

When I deal with this I prefer the concepts of Mars and Venus, explained by John Gray in a book called Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, instead of masculine and feminine.  It is less threatening.  We are all a combination of both but it used to be more acceptable to act like a man if you were a man and a woman if you were a women.  The sexes are different.  Unless you have been brainwashed by modern education it is obvious.  What has happened in our culture is that Mars has been eclipsed by Venus.  Thus we still have men in education but they act more like the traditional woman that a macho male.  They are expected to be in contact with and dominated by their feelings. 

The difference is ubiquitous.  I think that is my word for the month.  One of the big changes since I was a child is the destruction of education.  I taught for 29 years and the battle was always the same.  The pressure was away from hard facts and toward feeling good.  When I was in elementary school my principal was a scary old man.  There was no way you wanted to get sent to his office.  In high school the principle was a scary of woman.  Ditto.  Even the women were on the side of Mars.  In the years I taught I only had one male principle.  By the time I retired, the principle was a woman who looked at herself as the advocate of the children against the teachers.  It makes a difference.  Instead of teaching patriotism and responsibility we had a constant litany of anti-bullying and the instructions to go find an adult to mediate.  Gone was the lesson that the best way to deal with a bully was to punch him in the nose.
