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 2018-213: Headlines: Two More for the Donald

The Washington Free Beacon gives two reasons to continue to “put up” with Donald Trump.  The new one is the announcement by John Bolton that the United States would no long offer any support or cooperation with the UN joke called the International Criminal Court (ICC).  Its real name should be The Communist Anti-American Committee.  Like so many UN organizations it started with a lot of great ideals and immediately became another joke. 

The second reason is one that has been in the news for a few days, if you get your news from people who actually report.  President Trump has announced he is going to shut down the office of the Palestinian Liberation Organization in Washington, D.C.  That office is another example of a good idea that turned out to be a waste of time. 

Remember we have elections coming up in November.  Remember that if the Democrats gain seats they will cripple the attempts of Donald Trump to Make America Great Again.  He already has to fight the press and most of the Republican party.  While it is amazing what he has achieved in the face of all that resistance, he does not need the challenge of a total Democrat roadblock.

Elections have consequence.  I believe Obama said that when he won.  Of course he forgot all about it when he lost.  Lets refresh his memory.
