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 2020-175: Headlines: Kanye for President

When I first saw the headline I thought I misread it or it was a misprint.  It said 2020.  Evidently that is what he said and what he meant.  I keep in mind a couple of things.  First, you can’t believe much that you read in the news.  The only thing I can be sure of is that sometime in the last few days Kanye West spoke.

Second, it was offered as a catalyst for thinking.  People have thrown the idea around before.  Maybe there is something to it.  So far I have seen nothing that adds or elaborates on the statement.

Third, it could be a joke like Trump was reported to have made about running for president.  And then the joke became reality.

I am not opposed to considering West for president in 2024.  Right now I think we need another four years of the Donald.  I would encourage West to keep the thought going and do some serious preparation.  Would I vote for him?  At this point I don’t know.  I know he has backed Trump.  It seems that his religious conversion is real.  Before that conversion it would have been an automatic “no”.  He is a successful business man in addition to his history as a Rapper.  Could be.

There will be some possible good competition in 2024.  In the politician ranks we have Tom Cotton and Jim Jordan along with governor Kristi Noem.  It would really be interesting if the different personalities could get together and pool their energy.  If we are serious about draining the swamp it will need to continue past 2024.

Interesting times.
