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 2016-297: Election 2016: Long Live Partisanship

Today is the day we have all been looking forward to with dread and anticipation.  While the polls have been open for early voting in some locations I think they are all closed after tonight.  It has been a long and fiercely contested process.  Some in the media would have you believe that this is unusual but if you believe that then you also believe in global warming.  You need to be careful what you believe and who told you.

Elections have always been raucous.  Partisanship is what freedom is all about.  Close elections are what keep the winners on their toes.  The only ones calling for togetherness and mindless unity are the censors of the elite.  They are the ones who have been sending violent “protestors” to Trump rallies and then accusing him of generating hatred.  They are the ones who have caused extreme reactions every time a conservative voice tries to talk on a college campus.  They are the ones trying to control the internet.  They are out to shut us up.  Most are on the left but the “right” also has its share.

Rejoice in the partisanship.  It means that the spirit of democracy is alive and well.  Be glad you don’t live in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia.  I had a choice for the senate this year, a choice between two Democrats.  I had a choice for the House of Representatives this year, a choice between two Democrats.  Partisan politics has disappeared in the People’s Republik because the progressives are in charge.  It is like living in the Soviet Union where you can vote for anyone as long as it is the one Communist on the ballot. 

Fear peace and harmony at the cost of liberty.
