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 2017-142: Headlines: Awesome Unity

Did you hear about the election results of Paris, 90% for one candidate.  That is an awesome display of unity or a clear example of stupid.  Personally I think it sounds a lot like the managed elections of the soviet empire.  Remember those days when you were required to vote and there was only one candidate and no write-in line?  It sounds like they are still with us.

We see similar patterns in the United States in large cities controlled by the Democrat machine.  I remember one of the elections in pre-statehood Missouri where there were around 3,000 registered voters and 6,000 votes were cast for the pro-slavery Democrats.  It must have been full of issues that concerned the local zombies.

Since it was France and its capital, I am willing to believe there might be that much group think but not anywhere else in the “free” world.  Next time you hear someone complaining about the partisan politics we have and how we are a divided country remember that is a mark of freedom.  It is also a sign that we are not French.

  1. If it wasn't for New York City, Trump would've actually carried the state of New York.

    1. The same is true of California and other states.

      Grace and peace.
