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 2013-84: New Terms: Bipartisanship

The Washington Times, National Weekly has a feature called “Inside the Ring” written by Bill Gertz.  In the February 11 edition, page 21 he is discussing the growing aggression of the Chinese navy and the challenge that presents. 

That is not what got my attention.

What stood out to me was a good definition of bipartisanship as defined by the current Democratic leadership.  He is quoting a Captain James Fanell
“China is challenging other nations’ rights...under the rubric of ‘what’s mine is mine, and we’ll negotiate what’s yours.’”
This is exactly the way the Progressives (Democrats, socialists, liberals, left, moderates) have been negotiating for years.  We keep moving toward the left and then they want to share what we have remaining.

You can find definitions in the most interesting places.  I wonder if it is any coincidence that the Communist Chinese and the current administration have the same philosophy of political compromise?
