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 2016-68: Elections 2016: Cruz Spoken Here

I am thinking it would help if every blog and website would have a disclaimer identifying the candidates they are supporting.  I know that they all claim to be non-partisan, both on the left and the right, but it ain’t so.

I was looking for results of Super Tuesday.  I kept getting Trump 329, Cruz 231, Rubio 110.  It was presented as the results of Super Tuesday, but it wasn’t.  It was the result to date.  I wanted to know how Cruz did on that day.  I felt he was still in the race but had not done as well as I would have wished.  Then I was looking at a graph showing how the states had gone and noticed that the list started with Iowa.  The numbers were the same as the articles I was reading.  I realized that the media was portraying things to show Trump having a better day than he actually had.  Yes he won, but if you take out the votes before Tuesday the results for the day come out with Trump 237, Cruz 209, which is a lot closer and shows that Cruz is stronger than they want you to believe.  On Saturday Cruz got more delegates than Trump but it wasn’t in any of the leads I read.

Since I am interested in Cruz, I did not bother with the numbers for Rubio.  I imagine the same pattern could be seen.

One site that has at least one contributor who is an admitted Rubio supporter gave an analysis that said something about it you left out Texas and other tweeks, Rubio did better than Cruz. 

It would sure be helpful when I read people’s opinion if I knew where they were coming from.
