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 2015-398: Election 2016: The Sifting Begins

Well, it has started. 

When Rick Perry dropped out of the race I was not too disappointed.  While I rated him higher than the establishment candidates, he was not my top choice. 

Now Scott Walker has announced he is out, according to the NY Times.  That hurts.  He would have been one of my top choices, if not the top.  I had hopes but the process has started.  I remember the last few elections as one by one the people that I had at the top of my list dropped out.  Then we were left with Bob Dole, we lost.  Then we were left with John McCain, we lost.  Then we were left with Mitt Romney, we lost. 

Who are we going to be left with this time?  There are still some good candidates.  Walker makes a good point when he urges us to unite behind one who can win.  History tells us that we cannot win with a moderate.

The thing that scares me in the ariticle was that it said Walker had the support of one half a percent of the primary voters.  I knew I was an oddball but didn’t think I was that odd.  No wonder I am always forced to settle for 10th best.

Since the article is in the New York Times you need to take every detail with a grain of salt.  I think we can accept that Walker has withdrawn.
