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 2021-280: New Terms: The Electron Curtain

The phrase “Iron Curtain” was coined by Winston Churchill in a speech given after World War II was over and he had been booted out of office by the people of Great Britain.  He had always been warning FDR about the danger represented by Stalin and the Soviet Union.  Now, with the war over, the Soviet Union was rattling its sabers and showing Stalin’s true colors in such a way that even the Pollyanas of the United States could not ignore it.  The shooting was over.  The Nazi menace had been defeated.  Now Communism was on the march.  The Cold War had begun.

The totalitarian philosophy of the Germans and Italians has survived.  It is continued by the Communist party and its disguised servants in the rest of the world.  That includes the United States.  They have cleaned up, put on different clothes and edited their vocabulary, but they are more entrenched that they were in 1939.  Today they have taken over key posts in the government and are linking up with their allies in the media and education.  They are censoring and coercing everyone that comes on their radar.  The Iron Curtain has been replaced by the Electron Curtain.

No longer do they need to raid your newspaper and smash your presses.  Now all they need to do is shut down your social media accounts, adjust the Google search engines and get the banks to cancel your credit.  No blood.  No violence.  No waves.  The stomping and destruction have become very civilized.

We are in for an interesting ride.
