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 2022-137: The Fork Conspiracy

What made Western European culture the dominate force in the world?  I could explain it to you but you probably would not believe me so let me suggest something that may have gone unnoticed.

I give you a symbol of White, European, Patriarchal Dominance:  The Fork.

The fork is a symbol of White dominance.  It is amazing how many people have an opinion on the fork.  Like almost everything, some people claim the Chinese were the first.  However you want to trace it the widespread use of the fork was European.

Different cultures use different implements.  Knives, spoons and fingers are probably the most common.  Asian cultures seem to have adjusted to chop sticks.  Where Europeans have gone they have taken the fork.  Not only do you need to know how to use one without puncturing your body you might also need to know which fork to use first.

It is the fork that oppresses the rest of the world.  If the people trying to drag down Western culture are successful it is possible that the world will go back to eating with their fingers out of a common pot.  Perhaps Congress will declare the use of a fork as a hate crime.  Proregressives call it progress.
