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 2020-259: Save the Republic

Really people?  You are still on Twitter and Facebook?  

Full disclosure requires that I inform you I have never used either.  I have only been tempted to go on Twitter to keep in contact with one person in the younger generation but so far have not given in.  I have nothing to lose by what I am going to say.  It is like a post condemning liver and onions.

If you are paying attention you have heard about Twitter doing everything it can to deep six all information about the corruption in the Biden family.  The New York Post evidently came out with some information they have had for months, organizations like the Trump Campaign have tried to inform the public through their Twitter accounts and have been shut down.  This has happened to others also.

Twitter is trying to destroy the country by managing the information you receive.  If the government were doing it we would call it criminal censorship on the level of the Soviet Union or Communist China.  Some people say that since we have a First Amendment their actions are legal and protected.  In a sense yes but the First Amendment says you have the right to speak and publish what you want, it does not say you have the right to stifle someone else.  I am not a big fan of more government regulation and control so I am not so sure about the government clamping down on the social media commissars.

I say, let the market decide.  You are the market.  If you really resent what these billionaires are doing to keep you ignorant then stop using their product.  Have you noticed how the NBA is changing its tune about its childish social justice warriors?  That is because people used their remote controls to walk away from the NBA.  That hurts them in the pocketbook.  That makes them change.  You have the power to do the same thing to Twitter and Facebook.

So quit griping and write a note, dial a number or drop by their house.  Save our republic.

  1. I don't care for it either, but I have some Christian acquaintances on there that I'd have no contact with otherwise and it's the source of most of my memes (including the Christian ones that I share with others). Since I block liberals after the first tirade, I don't get much of the liberal blather that upsets most conservatives. When the day comes that it serves me no purpose, I'll drop it. Until then, I'll use it for what I can and bitch and belly-ache for entertainment.

    1. I will admit I would miss the service you provide by assaulting Facebook for the memes.

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
