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 2016-295: Election 2016: Spin Cycle

Who is going to win?  No one knows, especially the media and pollsters.  There is so much spin and outright deceit going on that it is impossible to read.  People are afraid to say they are for Trump in certain venues.  I do straw poles at school and I can see them looking around and not expressing any opinion.  Then you have the ones who are messing with the media.

I recently read a piece that talked about how there was going to be a massive Latino turn out that would win this thing for Hillary.  That is based on the elite’s racist assumption that they have brainwashed the Latino vote the way they have the black vote.  The upset-the-donkey-cart reality is that their lock on the black vote is not as solid as it once was.  We may have a large Latino turnout but a significant portion of them may also vote for Trump.

My wife was out at a yard sale.  She was the only Anglo in one yard and got into politics with about seven Latinos.  It seems that they all claimed they were voting for Trump. 

Who is going to win?  We probably won’t know until Wednesday morning and possibly not even then because there will be so many cases of Democrats cheating that the election may be tied up in court and investigations.  It won’t be the first time.  If you have the time check out the election of 1876 on Wikipedia.

The country has survived contentious votes before.  I assume we will again.
