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 2022-250: Headlines: Of Whom Do We Speak?

How do you tell a Never Trumper who is still hiding in the closet.  Out of the closet it is often what they say.  When they are still keeping their head down it will be in what they don’t say.  Powerline has one such person who is actually playing both sides of the fence.  When I read one of his posts and Trump is mentioned I just wait and eventually there is a backhanded slap at the man.  You are familiar with the concept of damning with faint praise.  I don’t even need a drum roll.  I am getting to the point where I don’t read his stuff when Trump comes up.

I thought I was safe because he was writing about the energy debacle taking place in what used to be the free world.  Here it was a clear case of Trump-phobia.  Notice this section,

“Meanwhile, here in the U.S., we had energy independence–not just independence, but dominance–only a few years ago. It took a concerted effort by the Biden administration to screw it up.”
Now, let me ask you, who was president just a few years ago?  What country did not have energy dominance before that un-named person because president?  Would it have hurt to mention the name in giving credit where credit was due?

I am beginning to wonder if Never-Trumpers are like Communists.  They don’t seem to be able to change.
