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 2022-080: Election 2022: Half a Paper Trail Is Better Than None

I voted on Tuesday.  Although I don’t approve of the extended early voting I still make use of it.  It went smoothly and I was pleased to see something new.

Paper ballots.  

The machines were still there.  I had to get a number to put in the machine but when I finished making my wishes known the machine printed out the results of what I had marked.  So far, so good.  Then I was told to take it to another machine, check to see if it was accurate and put the paper in the second machine.  That was when it was counted.  Cool.  

I did not get a copy.  Not so cool.  My paper stayed in the machine.

But it was still better than just electronics.  There will theoretically be a trail that can be followed.  The problem for me is that I don’t know if my vote was tallied honestly.  I should be able to check that someway and with modern technology it is doable.  If nothing else I should be able to take the number I used to get my ballot, go on line and check to see if what they have matches what I did.

We are making progress.  I hope it does not stop here.
