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 2024-125: Let’s Play, “Spot the Nazi”

I came across a statement in a Thomas Sowell book that made me think of some of the nonsense we have been hearing in our culture.  First the Sowell quote,

“In totalitarian nations, virtually every intellectual field is politicized.  Genetics and economics acquire ideological significance in the Soviet Union, and Nazi German proclaimed the existence of such intellectual entities as German physics, German chemistry, and German mathematics.” p. 341, emphasis in original
Now compare that to the nonsense you have been hearing about science and math being infested with white supremacy.  

At the risk of overplaying the Hitler card, do you notice the similarity in emphasis between the Communists and Nazis in acting like even the factual subjects are different when they are covered by their pet political group.  It is just another example of the way the thinking of the woke is adopting the philosophy and methods of totalitarian movements.  

The results will be the same unless America wakes up to the woke.
