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 2022-056: White Supremacy 101

We need a program, federal or state, that introduces into our educational system a series of classes exploring the attitudes, practices and principles that are labeled white supremacy.  It could be a required part of the middle school curriculum like conversational Spanish.  It could be a freshman level course in college.  Remember when civics was required?  Remember when homemaking was offered?  It could just be another class.

If it were taught as an exploration, the principles could be introduced one at a time.  How many young people have never been threatened by the concept of being on time?  How many would find the idea of hard work offensive?  For those who are pushing racial divisiveness and identity politics it would be a great tool for expressing their hatred.  Give it a shot.  Tell the whole world all the oppressive things that are a part of white supremacy.  Most will rebel at the idea of picking up their own sox.

At first.

But give it some time.  It won’t take long before some black kid says, “Hey, that’s what my grandma always told me.”  Or the young lady who says, “There is a problem with two parent families?”  In the long run the part of the population that can tell when a shirt is on inside out will begin to see that the principles are not “white” but plain common sense.

Keep in mind that you never need to be afraid of the truth if you accept that truth is a good thing.  That kind of fear is reserved for those who want to hide and manipulate.
