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 2011-314, The Deception of Kettle Korn

Call me a fanatic.  Tell me I strain after gnats and swallow camels or the other way around.  That does not change the simple facts.  Kettle Korn is not real popcorn.  There ought to be some federal law that requires a disclaimer on the label to keep people from being sucked into this plot.  Is there no integrity left in the world?  You think it is deceptive to try to label Mit Romney as a conservative or Barak Obama as non-partisan?  That is mild compared to inferring Kettle Korn has any relation to “popcorn.”

Popcorn has corn kernels, salt and butter.  Anything else is toxic to the taste.  Okay, I will let you add some cheese if you want, but that is the limit.  Sugar is anathema.  Sugar if heretical.  Sugar is vulgar.  It also ruins a great snack.  The people that want to add sugar to popcorn are the same ones who have made it almost impossible to find baby dill pickles that are not kosher.  It starts with a little section of one shelf and eventually spreads through the entire pickle department.  We need to draw a line now.

There are few things that are still pure and honorable.  Popcorn is one of those. 

Please leave my popcorn alone.

  1. Hmmm....I LIKE kettle korn, but I hate that Coke is no longer the real thing (read the label), unless they've changed it back again.

  2. I guess I have finally found your flaw. I guess there are worse things than liking kettle corn.

    Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
