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 2017-360: Election 2018: Shaking off the Flakes

I love the spin that the media puts on events.  It seems that Senator Jeff Flake has smelled the roses and is withdrawing from reelection.  He probably watched what happened in Alabama and can tell that what he is smelling is not roses.  Arizona Central calls his announcement a “bombshell”.  Many of us would label it an answer to prayer. 

He tries to make it sound very noble with the comment,
"there may not be a place for a Republican like me in the current Republican climate or the current Republican Party."
It seems that at last the light has broken through.  You would think that this was a real sacrifice but it is simply political survival.  As the article says he has been “struggling in the polls”.  The reason for that is there is a true conservative running against him who will get on board with the president’s agenda instead of being a John McCain clone.

The media will spin this as a move toward the Republicans losing seats in the Senate.  My spin would be that this will insure that they will keep this seat.

Things are looking up.  It must be time for another scandal out of the DNC and MSM.
