Reformed Chicks Blabbing

I fear that the commenters are confused and need a little help with how Reformed theology is reflected in my posts. Or more specifically how I view the particular news item from a Reformed perspective. So, here’s what I’ll do. I will include in the post a section called “An interpretation of this post from the Reformed perspective” for a couple days so that you get a feel for where I’m coming from and hopefully that will be enough so that I don’t have to keep answering the obvious.
This leads me to a point that I’ve been thinking about making but every time I start writing it I decide that it’s insulting to the intelligence of my readers but then I get comments like this:

since you think you are the “queen” of reformed theology.

And I realize that maybe I should make the obvious clear: I say we look at news from a Reformed perspective because I thought it would honest to say that I come to this blog from a certain perspective. I’m saying it for your benefit, each of us has a worldview, mine is Reformed. It is not an American Evangelical perspective, it’s a Reformed perspective. I don’t say that my opinion is indicative of those who call themselves Reformed, I’m just saying that Reformed theology governs my interpretation of my world. I thought this was obvious but commenters seem to be confused, so I thought I would state it to help them out.
Now, if you are such a literalist that you think I meant that every single post I wrote would reflect my worldview, then maybe Reformed Chicks Blabbing isn’t for you and you need a more serious blog. Plenty of them out there. Humor is humor whether you are Reformed or not. It’s funny to think you’re getting a Michelle Obama saying the “w” word that everyone on the Internet is talking about and it turns out to be Rick Astley, or video of a parrot that reminds you of Obama supporters 🙂 Humor is universal and as creatures who share a common humanity, culture, language, etc., we will find some of the same things humorous.
So, lighten up my Reformed brethren. I’m not trying to be the standard bearer of Reformed theology, I just wanted to give my readers a heads up that a Reformed weltanschauung is spoken here 🙂
Adding a whole section to my posts will slow down posting even more but there you go.
