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 2016-24: Repeal the 26th

  think it is time to repeal the 26th Amendment.  In fact we need to amend it or rewrite it. 

In case you were not paying attention, the 26th Amendment sets the voting age at 18.  Okay, so I had to look it up myself.  It is becoming clear that 18 is far too young to entrust with the franchise.  Consider the recent polling data out of Iowa. 

The polls indicated that the under 40 crowd is 2-1 in favor of Sanders over Clinton.  That means that the illiterate generation is twice as much as positive about an avowed socialist than for a closet socialist.  They seem to have not heard of the great socialists of history, Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot to name a few.  Wherever socialists get control death and poverty follow.

But in all fairness it is probable that their history teachers were all socialists too.

Perhaps it is time to raise the voting age to 40.  While we are at it we might want to take the franchise away from teachers and college professors.  I would be willing to give up my right to vote for losing candidates in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia in order to remove educational minions from the voter gene pool.

As George Putnam used to say at the end of each newscast, “Here’s to a greater, stronger America.”

  1. They made the fatal mistake when they began letting non-property-owners vote.

    1. There was a time in my youth when I would have vehemently disagreed with you but age and experience sometimes adds wisdom. We should at least not allow them to vote on issues dealing with property taxes.

      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.
