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 2023-120: What Happened to Fiction?

More and more science fiction is inadequate for a good read.

I am finding I need to suspend more and more belief and knowledge to stay in the story.  The current politically correct mantra keeps interrupting the plot.

    gender equality, woman warriors
    climate change
    homosexual agenda

It used to be that science fiction would speculate on the future based on a knowledge of the present.  They were usually wrong but it was good fun all around.

Now they are parroting the nonsense of the psuedoscience, crony science or political science, science that is masquerading as peer reviewed research.

I was able to suspend belief during Star Wars because I loved the special effects and you always had Harrison Ford.  Not so much any more.

I guess I could turn to western and travelogues.
