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 2021-077: Headlines: Or Not, More Mostly Peaceful Protesting

It looks like we are back in the era of “mostly peaceful protests.”  I followed a link on the Citizen Free Press.  It took me to another one of their pages.  It contained some video and tweets about a protest by Antifa and BLM in Washington D.C.  

My question is, “Did it really happen?”  My second question is, “If it did, why can’t I find reference to it anywhere else?”

Could it be more of the information blackout that the Progressives* in government and media are imposing on us?  Every time I turn around I hear about another established news site being shut down.  People that have been speaking for years are being silenced.  As far as I know it isn’t a matter of violence, just cutting them off from the means to communicate with the world.  

I kept looking and eventually found it mentioned on Breitbart who says that Fox reported the demonstration was going to take place.

As far as I can tell there was no looting or arson.  There were veiled threats of burning down neighborhoods but it seemed it was mainly intimidation.  They did have “scuffles” with the police and they harassed some people out for dinner.  

It seems like a lot of similar behavior to what happened on January 6.  I will wait for the arrests and trials but I will find a good book to read while I wait.
