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 2022-213: Election 2024: A Never Happen Slate

Many people are speculating on whether Donald Trump will run again in 2024.  Evidently Joe Biden is thinking about it.  Maybe in his dreams.  What will be the match up?

The big question really is what slate the Democrats can come up with to compete in the next presidential election.  I have a combination that might get them some traction.  I only suggest it because it will never happen.  I would not want to give them any clues.  I prefer them without one.

I am suggesting a Manchin/Gabbard ticket.  Or go with Gabbard/Manchin.  Either way it would have a better chance of winning than anything I have heard so far.  Of course it seems like both of them have been going out of their ways to be ignored.

The way they have alienated the Democratic leadership is by making reasonable statements and taking genuinely moderate positions.  Joe Manchin has been the one vote that the Democrats have not been able to get on several bills.  Good for him.  Tulsi Gabbard has made a number of statements like she is actually an American citizen.  I don’t think I could vote for either one of them because they are Democrats at heart but I am glad to see a bit of reality on the other side.

We continue to live in interesting times.
