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 2015-69: Headlines: Are 16 Year Olds Being Drafted Now?

The watering down of the right to vote continues.

The president and his Progressive allies have been doing everything they can to make it possible for illegal immigrants to vote.  They view every new illegal as a guaranteed Democrat.  It is how they are trying to keep control of the country.  Now, in San Francisco, we see another approach. 

Breitbart reports that the city of San Francisco is moving toward lowering the voting age to 16.  The obvious reason is that the 16 year old population is even more ignorant than the 18 year olds and the Progressives need more brainwashed people to vote blindly for them. 

I don’t know how many 16 year olds you know.  They are the same as the rest of the population in many ways.  Some are clever, some are not.  Some are personable, some have questionable habits.  What they generally are not is informed.  Ask them to find Iraq on a map.  For that matter, ask them to find Washington, D.C. on a map.  Ask them what is in the first amendment.  Ask them who their senators are.

Then tell me they are ready to vote.
