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 2018-264: Election 2018: Scratching My Head

I was hoping for better news on the House of Representatives but it looks like most of the races were won by significant enough numbers to demonstrate the will of the voters.  I know how they voted and it was very frustrating to watch all of those seats flip to the party of hate.  It really just reinforces my view of a nation that elected Clinton and Obama and repeated the nonsense. 

Business as usual, but I really can’t figure out some of the results.

I now live in Texas.  I came here to get away from politicians like Beto O’Rouke.  He is an empty suit that disagrees with the values and culture of Texas on just about every issue.  He lost as he should.  The thing that mystifies me is that he came so close.  According to the latest information from the Secretary of State he received 48.32 compared to Cruz at 50.89.  ??????  Pick an issue.  Guns, he was against them.  Abortions, he was for them.  Open borders was his theme.  Go on down the list and he sounded like he could have won in California.  He came close enough to be scary.

And look at Arizona.  According to Real Clear Politics McSally is less than one percent ahead of a Democrat who said Arizona voters were crazy and had no problem with people joining ISIS to fight against America.  This should have been a runaway situation.  Of course this is the state that kept returning John McCain, Mr. RINO, to the senate.  You need to factor in all the liberals fleeing their model socialist state to the west.  Still, where are the Americans?

I can understand Virginia moving blue.  Northern Virginia is simply an overflow for the swamp of D.C.  Their gravy train in on the line.  What I can’t understand is Pennsylvania.  Four districts switched to the swamp support by sizable margins.  Have they ever heard of coal?

We will move on.  Divided government is part of the checks and balances that the Founding Fathers envisioned.  It is probably healthy.  So are Brussel sprouts.  It doesn’t mean I have to like them.
