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 2024-158: Get on Board

I noticed recently that a certain confused young man finally ran into some adults.  It seems that putting on a woman’s bathing suit, letting his hair grow and declaring himself a woman did not go very far with the International Olympic Committee.  They said, “No, you’re not.”

One day I ask myself how confused and conflicted this guy must be to be willing to embarrass himself this way.  Those who are not laughing at him are experiencing a growing rage at what he is doing.  If I were him I would be worried that the rage might someday break out and shatter his delusions in a painful way.  Hopefully he will grow up, wake up, return his devalued medals and get on with life.

The next day I ask myself where the adults are in the room.  How has this blatant nonsense been allowed to continue?  Why has no one told him, “No, you are a male.  The men’s room is down the hall.”  Why has no one taken him to court for voyeurism as he hangs around the women’s locker rooms?

You may not be able to do anything about this walking delusion but you can make an impact where you are.  Start with the simple stuff.  Recently I had a doctor’s appointment.  They wanted me to register on line.  Having done it once I have vowed, “Never again.”  It takes forever.  That is one issue.  They ask questions I don’t want to answer.  That is also an issue on the paper forms, but there is an important difference.  When the paper form asks me for my gender identity and preferred pronouns, I can just ignore it, skip over, and go on listing my physical information.  When you register on the computer it will not allow you to do that.

Join the resistance.  Call men in women’s clothing men.  When someone asks you your pronouns, look at them with pity dripping from you eyes.  You may need to practice that in front of a mirror.  Don’t fill in the blanks that insult.

Resistance does not need to be violent but it does need to cost them something.
