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 2016-197: Election 2016: Democracy Is Always Messy

The Republican convention is over.  The voting was done.  The political maneuvering was a wonder to behold.  Donald Trump won.

He won fair and square, or as fair and square as you can do in politics.  He gave and took punches.  Whether you like it or not, he won.  He got the required number of votes.  To complain about all of his tactics is nothing but sour grapes.  Every candidate had moments of questionable decisions.  It is called politics.  In a free country it is to be expected.  If you don’t like it, 2020 is coming and you can get started right after the next election.

If you don’t like the rules, now is the time to start changing them.  If you don’t know what the rules were then stop complaining and read them.

And all that powder that you have been keeping dry can now come out for the general election.  Remember it is no longer a contest between Hillary and Bernie or Donald and Ted.  It is now a contest between Hillary and Donald with a few supporting distractions thrown in.

It is time to make the hard choice.  For some that will be to vote or not but remember if you don’t vote you forfeit your right to complain.
