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 2021-124: Headlines: Cancel Music

I continue to wonder how the Proregressives* can look themselves in the mirror and not laugh themselves to death.  It seems that the cancel culture has come for written music.  Somehow the ability to take something you hear and write it down on paper so that others can have access to it is an element of white privilege.  Musical scores are now racist, at least if you use the method developed in Europe.  Once again the people who call themselves progressive become regressive.  They are turning the clock back in such a way that hundreds of years of acquired culture are to be thrown away in the name of multiculturalism.  

This is not the Babylon Bee.  The first place I saw this was in The American Thinker but I have seen it other places as well.  The Thinker lists The Daily Mail as the source.  The claim is that scholars at Oxford University are claiming that musical notation should be done away with in the interest of equality, and might I add ignorance.  

This kind of thinking is typical of what “higher” education is advocating today.  The sole agreed upon goal of modern universities is to undermine and destroy Western civilization.  Art has already been twisted to the point of being meaningless.  Literature is now reaching new heights when it achieves mediocre.  Math evidently has a racist component.  Now music must be reduced to just what can be remembered.  Can you picture trying to play the Nutcracker Suite from memory after hearing it played by people who could not read music?  

Maybe we should support ideas like this but carry them to their logical conclusion:  We need to close down Oxford University for the same reasons they want to do away with music notation.  In the article it says that Western music is racist because it was developed in the period of slavery.  That would also apply to Oxford University.  It should apply to just about every college and university that is not solely  on line.  Actually even the most recent would qualify to be disbanded because of slavery.  Slavery still exists.  It is a formal reality is much of the Muslim world and it is hidden in the sex industries and much of the sweat labor industries of the West.  China currently holds millions of people in bondage.

So I approve.  Cancel Oxford.  Cancel Columbia.  Cancel Harvard.  Cancel all of them.  Go back to OJT and such things as reading for the bar in a local lawyer’s office.

  1. What amazes me is that CONSERVATIVE parents will still send their kids there, I suppose for the name!

    1. I am amazed that people continue to send their children to public school.

      Grace and peace
