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 2017-259: Headlines: This Is a Problem?

The Washington Times had a lead article sharing Trump tweeting about being upset with Mitch McConnell.  That is okay.  A lot of us are upset with Mitch McConnell.  The writer seemed to think this was a problem.

The article explained why McConnell might be having a bit of trouble.
“Mr. McConnell has been at the helm of the Senate GOP for a decade, but most of that time was spent as minority leader, where he was successful in blunting Democrats’ agenda.”
I will give him the nod for nine of those years.  The problem now is that he is using those skills for blunting the agenda of the Americans who voted for things like repeal of Obama care.  I would say the agenda of the Republicans but I am afraid there are too many like him that don’t see the world the way Trump does and the way we do.  We need someone in charge who can rein in people like John McCain. 

Vote the suckers out.

  1. Amen, but who could we trust? Even most of the younger ones are part of the problem.

      Grace and peace.
