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 2020-267: Whither Privilege?, part 1 of 6

When I see the term “white privilege” I don’t know whether to cry or laugh.  It is the kind of a concept that could only be brought up by professional manipulators who know they are dealing with ignorant masses.  It is an obvious attempt to destroy the culture of the West which has produced the greatest amount of freedom from political tyrants in history.  It is a way of thinking that is totally immersed in the evil type of racism that these Progressives* keep accusing whites of radiating.  As most of the declarations from these Marxist elites, it does not stand up to any test involving real facts and the ability to think.  Maybe that is why so many suck it up and spew it out.

White privilege is a fantasy dreamed up by people looking for someone to blame for their failures and shortcomings.  It is a philosophy that was offered as satire in Lake Wobegon Days.  You remember how all the children were above average.  It should not take you long to realize such a thing is impossible.  In case you need a clue let me point out that average means half will be above and half will be below.  It is the philosophy of Karl Marx.  I have heard it translated, “From each according to his ability and to each according to his need.”  Notice there is nothing in that about working harder or delaying your gratification.

To be continued...
