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 2022-138: Be Post-Hanlon

By now I am sure that most of you, being intelligent conservatives who seek out non-fake news, have come across the many reactions to Elon Musk buying Twitter.  One of the clearest statements of hating American freedom was on MSNBC and is discussed on The Daily Wire.  I think this is a good time to refute conventional wisdom.

I refer to Hanlon’s Razor.  It says,

“Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.”
I think people who believe in traditional concepts of morality need to get a grip and embrace the proper understanding of that concept in modern American media and Proregressive* politics.  It does not have a place.  I suggest that we instead start chanting,
“Don’t attribute to ignorance what is clearly evil.”
Don’t make excuses.  Don’t try to be understanding.  It doesn’t work with these people.  The reason they study the rules of a game is to figure out how to cheat.  They always want to be the banker in Monopoly and the dealer in card games.  We need to maintain our standards.  Be honest.  Embrace truth.  At the same time we need to look at their track record.  Someone who has lied to you consistently for years is not going to suddenly become honest.

Accept it.  They are evil, not misguided.
