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 2015-453: Election 2016: We Lose the Good Ones

Recently I heard “Suspension of Intellect” yelled from the other room.  From the comments I gather that it was used by Ben Carson.  He is one of my top choices.  My fear is that he will join the list of drop outs and leave behind a too many Rinos.  He seems to be declining in the polls.  Whether that means anything or not, time will tell.

Every election I see it happen.  The Scott Walkers and Bobby Jindals drop out while the Chris Christies, Lindsey Grahams and Mike Huckabees hang in there.  I end up being forced to choose between a socialist fool or my last choice of a Republican.  Bob Dole and Mitt Romney were nice guys and certainly would have made better presidents that what we got.  Even John McCain would have been better.  The problem is that they did not really have a chance.  They were not conservative enough to win.

It is still early.  I could embrace a Ben Carson presidency.  I would prefer a Ted Cruz presidency.  I hope my only choices are not Trump or Hillary in November.

It is getting late.  The conservatives should get together and decide who it should be instead of the continuing ego trips and dreams.  As much as I like Rick Santorum, it is getting to be time to narrow the focus

November is coming and I want a choice, not a lesser of two evils.

  1. I totally agree. By way of encouragement, I was at the Atlanta (Cobb County) rally for Ben Carson this past week, and did not see any hint of him dropping out. I am a little confused at his comments about the RNC "secret meeting" shenanigans, though.

    1. If Trump does not begin to fade then Carson and Cruz are going to need to sit down and agree to combine their efforts. I could support either one but, since I am not a democrat, can only vote once.

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
