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 2017-063: Gerrymandering in Democratic Controlled Maryland

I just wrote about the issue of gerrymandering.  I thought I might show you one example if it comes through.  I am new to trying to put pictures in my blog.  The current advocate of doing away with gerrymandering, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, does not want to show you this image of the 3rd district in Maryland.  This was a district when he was governor and he did nothing to change it, nor did he complain.

This is a Google Image.  You can find many more examples.

In case you are interested, according to PJ Media, the Democrats claim this is not gerrymandering.  Of course they claim that a Ruger 10/22 with a pistol grip is an assault rifle.

Politics and truth are two bedfellows that always stay in different hotels.

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.
