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 2011-117, The Touchy TSA

I had another chance to refuse to be radiated.  This time they were trying to put everyone through the rays.  When I “opted out” they took me out and did the pat down.  Other than the general loss of dignity being searched like a criminal in public and the violation of probable cause and due process protections of the Constitution, it was no big deal.  Since I am not a glamorous young woman the touching was basic.  There were no cavity searches.

Both times I have been patted down they have assigned the newest, least experienced TSA employee.  They have been polite and professional, but obviously had not done this much.  Each time I politely tell them that I hope when the courts come down on this I hope it is the suits that get nailed and not the ones “following orders.” 

And a good time was had by all.
