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 2021-239: Headlines: Equality Strikes Again

Years ago under Bill Clinton action was taken allowing women to serve in combat roles.  At the time there were critics who said this would open the door to drafting women.  Of course the left called them hysterical but now we see that it is becoming a reality.  

According to the Daily Wire one of the actions by the Senate Armed Services Committee included this change.  That comes as no shock to me.  What should have shocked me, but didn’t really, was that most Republicans on the Committee went along with it.  The two Senators who are lifted out as vocally voting “no” on the change were Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Josh Hawley of Missouri.  Those two names should tell you what the right position for Republicans was.

If you are curious the article gives a list of the Republicans who voted each way.  Of course you can assume that all Democrats voted “yes”.  

It is embarrassing to still be a Republican.

    1. I would need to come back every time there was a primary. That makes me think of a good name for the new party we all could join, The Grouse Group.

      Grace and peace
