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 2023-198: Stop Insulting the Pagans

I am constantly searching for words that project my disgust with the modern Proregressives*.  My red-neck, fundamentalist, born-again ethical standards don’t allow me to use many of the four letter expressions but they are getting so common they have lost their punch.  

I have called the current Proregressives pagan at times.  I might have said “barbarian”.  I don’t think I have used “heathen”.  Other times I might use anti-God which is probably the most accurate.

It may be time to apologize to the pagans for misusing their label.  It is not an insult to call someone a pagan.  It simply means someone who worships many gods.  The modern left certainly worships many gods but they mean themselves, not Zeus, Apollo and Pan.  Pagans would include people like Marcus Aurelius, Plato, Confucius and possibly Buddha.  It is an insult to include Sorros, AOC, Pelosi, Shift, Schumer and the rest of the gang in such company.

I have been searching for a better word than pagan.  Sewer brain seems too childish.  Froward paragons might be too highbrow.  Recently I suggested “Canaanites”.  Any suggestions?
