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 2021-053: Headlines: I Bet You Missed This One

It is always fascinating how evil can prosper.  I offer another example of Fake News that is offered up in language that is true, if misleading.  This is from an English Language Newspaper from India called Republic World.  First examine the title and wonder why we did not hear about this in our press, or maybe we did, I don’t watch CNN.

“US Capitol Seige: First Lady's Chief Of Staff Grisham Resigns In Wake Of Violent Protests”
When you read the article you see that the lady did resign, she was the FLOTUS’s Chief of Staff, it did happen after (in the wake), and there was some violence, after all a guy in police uniform shot an unwarmed trespasser.  

But I read the article.  There was not a hint that she resigned because of the “violent” protests.

Does this qualify as Fake News or just click bait?  The date was January 7.  In looking at other articles listed at the bottom of the page it was clear the Indian “Journalists” had drunk the kool aid being offered by the American Press.
