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 2019-109: Election 2020: Trump Isn’t Being Nice

I was skimming through various sites looking for things of interest.  I looked down the list of articles in Real Clear Politics and one caught my eye, “The Biggest Obstacle to Trump’s Re-Election”.  I didn’t know there were any obstacles but it got my interest. 

My first clue that I was wasting my time was that it was from The Atlantic.  I think Atlantic is Latin for “fake news”, but I could be wrong on that since I never took Latin.  I do know that they do not, nor have they ever, had a good word to say about Donald Trump.

Not much is changed.  I didn’t read every word but I scanned through to get the idea.  They felt like a lot of people who admit the economy is doing well still don’t like Trump because he isn’t nice.  They criticized his speech at the Orlando rally because it wasn’t nice and say his only hope of winning is by being nice.

Not much has changed.  The Fake News networks will keep hammering away about all the things they don’t like about Trump.  One of the biggest things they don’t like about Trump is the number of people that do like him.  All the voices that forecast he was going to lose in 2016 are trying to convince us that he will lose in 2020. 

2020 is coming.  I give you a choice:  Vote for Trump or buy a subscription to the Atlantic.

  1. I looked at one copy of The Atlantic years ago and never bothered again.

    1. You gave it a try, learned your lesson and didn't make the same mistake again. That sounds like a formula for wisdom to me.

      Grace and peace
