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 2021-031: Headlines: Rein It In

I got tired of reading the wishy washy analysis offered by Forbes as it responded to AOC calling for major media censorship.  The publication kept trying to act like this was some reasonable statement and quoted her as saying,

“We’re going to have to figure out how we rein in our media environment, so you can’t just spew disinformation and misinformation,”
To anyone with a grain of discernment this is a call to shut down all speech which the Progressive Socialists of America don’t agree with.  You have seen the beginnings of this as the social media giants have put the president in a box and convinced the financial institutions to join them.  Can you picture where this is going?  I can.

Keep in mind that between the NSA and its super computers and the algorithms that platforms like Google have developed they can find ways to nail anyone who uses any key word.  I remember when I was doing a search from my school computer years ago on a topic which used the word “breast”.  I can’t remember what it was but take “breast cancer” for this example.  The school software blocked me, a teacher, from doing the search because the word was questionable.  

If they allow us to e-mail they will be able to cancel anything we send that offends their sense of security.  Think millennial triggers and safe spaces.  Sure, you may be able to ask your grandmother for her chocolate chip recipe but only as long as the sugar content does not go over the recommendations of the Department of Health and Human Services or whomever is responsible for monitoring our food intake.

The squad it coming for you and they are not just a bunch of hysterical witches cackling over a cauldron singing, “Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble.”
