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 2015-399: Election 2016: News or Views?

I made a comment about the article in the NY Times about Walker’s withdrawal.  I also made a comment about the unreliable nature of the Times.  Let me give you an example of the distortion.

In the first paragraph the Times says Walker, “urged some of his 15 rivals to do the same so the party could unite against the leading candidate, Donald J. Trump.”

That was in the first paragraph.  Admit it.  Most of us don’t read beyond that.  We expect the basic to be there and time is limited.  That is very dangerous in a left wing source. 

If you keep reading you come across this,
“Without naming Mr. Trump, Mr. Walker issued a plea to fellow candidates to coalesce around a different Republican who could offer a more “optimistic” vision and guide the party to a victory next year that, he admitted with sadness in his voice, he could not achieve himself.”
So which is it.  Did he urge people to unite against Trump or was he simply calling on the conservatives to pull together?  Was it stated or implied?  Since the newspaper says later that he did not mention Trump, why would they assert at the beginning that he did?

Never believe the liberal media.  Like all elitists in the Nanny State, they want to keep you safe.  In this case it is safe from thinking for yourself and drawing your own conclusions.
