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 2022-113: Headlines: So Many Potential Causes

So many questions as another relatively young person dies.  The article in The Gateway Pundit says her name is Dr. Cat Pause’.  

“New Zealand: Massey University’s Queer Fat Studies Lecturer and ‘Fatlicious Feminist’ Dies Suddenly in Her Sleep at 42"
The article says nothing anywhere about the cause of death.  Based on the picture it could have been caused by complications of obesity.  Based on my litmus test I would also assume that she is one of those who was fully vaccinated so we have another possible cause.  We will probably never know more as a general population because for most of us Dr. Pause’ is far off our radar.

I am always a bit amused at some people who call themselves Doctor.  Think of the president’s wife.  Many people think she is an MD and I think she encourages that.  What most people don’t know is that there a a level of doctoral degrees that are far below MD and Ph.D.  Many people even have honorary doctorates that reflect no necessary qualification other than friends in the academic community.  When we consider Dr. Pause’ and her area of expertise, I have questions.
“Cat Pause,  an academic whose research explored the impacts of “fat stigma”, has died.”
Based on the title of the article it wasn’t just “fat stigma” but “Queer fat stigma.”  

42 is too young to die.  Early death is not a surprise though.  Young people tend to think they are immortal.  They get on motorcycles and skateboards and assume the laws of physics don’t apply to them.  They take drugs and drink themselves into a stupor and assume they will be the exceptions.  Or take this young academic who ate herself into extreme obesity and then climbed to the top of the mountain to scream, “Fat is beautiful!”  All very romantic but then she fell off the mountain.  I am not qualified to comment on the aesthetic aspects of obesity.  As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  All that being said, you can’t ignore the science.  Obesity kills.  I believe it was the leading cause of deaths that were attributed to the recent Covid virus.  I know it is well documented that it leads to other life threatening conditions.  It is one thing to advocate a high protein diet.  It is another thing to ignore what you know to be true.

Being paid tax dollars to teach what she was teaching was an even greater travesty.  How many other young people will die because they listened to her personal hangups.  Maybe it is time to shut down our universities or at least the departments that have the word “studies” in their title.

Who knows, it might save lives.
