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 2020-266: Election 2020: The Big Lies

I missed the first 20 minutes of the debate because they changed the starting time.  Two things stood out to me:  Biden’s lies and the moderator’s attempts to support Biden.  

Biden told so many lies and distorted so many facts that it is hard to pick one out.  Most of them have been emphasized in what I have read but one seems to have been overlooked.  It had to do with the question on minimum wage.  I believe Trump pointed out that when the minimum wage is raised employers lay off workers.  I believe this is well documented as well as common sense.  Biden said it was false.  No one has called him on it and they should.  

The second big lie came from President Trump.  It slipped by, I almost missed it.  In the midst of the kibitzing Trump told the moderator something to the effect of, “You are doing a good job.”  I almost gagged at that.  Maybe compared to the previous moderators, but the pattern was still there.  I noticed that when Trump would fire back at Biden she would always ask the VP if he had a response even when she was pretending they were running out of time.  I don’t remember her ever doing that to Trump.  He was forced to demand to be heard.

Both men should be ashamed of themselves.

  1. I didn't watch, but I'm not sure that I get you. Should Trump be ashamed for his overly supportive comment to the moderator or for making himself heard?

    1. It was a Babylon Bee comment. She was obviously biased. He was probably trying to be nice or might have just meant she was doing better than her predecessors. Either way it is the best way that liberals can label him a liar.

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
