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 2021-036: Headlines: It Seems America Wants Impeachment

As I was looking for the article that talked about AOC trying to violate the bill of attainder clause in the Constitution I came across something that I had totally missed.  The click bait I was seeing was declaring that a majority of Americans were in favor of impeaching Donald Trump.  Somehow that did not register with me as having much reliability.  Keep in mind Fake News and the Big Lie.  The one I linked is USA Today but the DNC talking point was being repeated by all the Alliance for Socialism in the Media.  

The numbers given were 52% among “respondents”.  Who sponsored the polling?  Politico.  As always, consider the source.  One reason I was totally unaware of this results was because I don’t follow the MSM.  I also don’t eat out of cans that have bulges or meat that has turned green.  I don’t believe it when the cat looks innocent nor do I expect the roaches to obey my “No Trespassing” signs.  

The only Americans who want the president impeached for inciting violence are the people who are already brainwashed or went to public school and don’t know the meanings of “inciting” or “violence”.  While I would admit that it might be 52% of respondent I would also suggest that they gave their response the same way Biden got so many votes, by mail.  It is kind of like reporting that a family of 6 has 66% in favor of ice cream for dinner.
