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 2020-041: Election 2020: Time to Put Down the Popcorn

If you agree with me I hope you voted yesterday.  If you don’t then I am less concerned. 

In some ways the primaries are more important than the general election.  This is where you get the best chance to knock off the ingrown incumbents and get some real Americans into office.  It is hard to do but there are a lot of RINOs that need to find day jobs.  It may not help their day job employer much but it will certainly benefit the country.  In places where there are enemies of liberty such as Pelosi and Schiff you need strong candidates to take them on in the general election.  We only had one office that this would apply to in our precinct and we went with the opposition in the primary.  He didn’t really have a chance but it was worth a try.

The general election is coming.  If you disagree with me on the issues then I really hope you get caught up in your Hallmark movies and forget to leave the house.  This election is too important for me to advocate snowflake voting.  If you understand the insidious nature of Fake News and are angry about the way the major sources of information are trying to manipulate us then get out there and work at voting the suckers out.

Keep in mind that there are also a lot of other things we will be voting on.  I think most states have judges coming up for the vote.  Cities and counties are electing people to make decisions about daily life.  There will probably be initiatives or whatever you call them in your area that need some thinking.  It isn’t just about re-electing Donald Trump.  Coat tails are important.

For many of us it is on to November, for the rest vote carefully in your primaries.
