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 2018-044: Election 2018: A Good Start

People ask me, “Why Texas?”  My quick answer is, “Because it isn’t California.”  That of course is not a complete statement.  As I was going over the Republican ballot for the primary election in March I realized that the propositions on it were as good a reason to move to Texas as I have ever seen.  I don’t know if passing them will put them on the general election ballot or whether it is just a straw vote.  Either way, this is why I came to Texas

Here are the propositions, paraphrased, but not much:

1.  Replace property tax with consumption tax
2.  No toll roads without a vote
3.  Republican nominee for speaker of the house chosen with no Democrat input
4.  E-verify for new employees
5.  Allow school choice to include all options
6.  Bathroom privacy for women and children
7.  Abolish abortion
8.  Make vote fraud a felony
9.  Complete repeal of Obamacare
10. Tax revenue increases capped at 4%
11. No tax dollars for professional sport team arenas

This may only be a Republican dream but it is a totally different attitude from the go along/get along attitude of Republicans in California.

Next question?
