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 2018-222: Election 2018: The Catholic Hierarchy Are Democrats

I understand that most bishops, archbishops and cardinals are not American so the tie to the Democratic party is purely symbolic.  But consider what we have seen seeing recently.  They are getting caught.  There doesn’t seem to be much question about that.  The juries are not only out but never met but the Catholics I have talked with believe there is no doubt.

So how do they respond?  Like Democrats.

They are doubling down and running for re-election.  Molesting little boys?  We will pay them off and move you to a new location.  Involved in homosexuality?  We will promote you and give you more power. 

Republicans also get caught.  Depravity and criminal behavior know no political party.  The difference is that the Republicans have the courtesy to step down.  If they don’t then the party moves in to make it happen. 

Someone once said that Republicans may not be the solution but Democrats are the problem.

Remember that when you vote in November.
