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 2021-172: Vive la Equality

I am continuing a call for diversity, today in the various professional sports organizations.  This would go from water boys to owners.

This could be a lot of fun.  One element of glee would be the decision of which five minorities would compose the starting line up.  This might require a few rule changes.  We might need to expand the starting lineup in the NBA to about 72 spots so that every gender can have a champion.  How about we have a line of hoops at each end of the court, set at differing heights for different players.  You could only score at your hoop.  Or maybe you could score at any hoop.  I don’t want to cut anyone out here.

We also might consider the people concerned about fat shaming and the vertically challenged.  Perhaps each team also needs at least one starter in a wheel chair except I don’t see people with real limitations demanding unrealistic concession.    

We would also need a socialist approach to salaries.  We are all in this together, right?  No one is really more important than anyone else, right.  Everyone gets paid the same.  In fact we might take it even one step farther.  Everyone who attends a professional sporting event will be required to fill out a form and include a recent pay stub and tax return.  Then we would take the average of everyone in the building and adjust their income accordingly.

It is all about equality.  Who could be against equality.  I told you this could be fun.

  1. Lessee now - if I recall my high school latin, "reductio ad absurdum" means the best way to defeat a silly notion is to require everyone to comply.

    1. I never took Latin but being around so much Spanish and reading history I picked up a few of the roots and how they were applied. The problem with the Marxist mantra of the left is that they think that the rules and restrictions only apply to others. They are exempt. Then they take over and start eliminating all the useful idiots.

      Grace and peace
