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 2013-54: Plastic Bags, You Heard it Here First

I was reading a post on Powerline recently.

I was impressed to find out that the influential of the world are finally catching up with me.  They had a post linking to an article by Ramesh Ponnuru which was linked even further to some scientific research and L.A. Times articles.

It is always amazing to me when scientists spend big bucks doing research to prove what common sense will tell you.  I don’t have a Ph.D. but here is what I said about the ban on plastic bags.
The major down side of this is sanitation.  When I get a plastic or paper bag from the store, I can assume that it is a first time use.  I can assume that it is clean and sanitary.  It is one less worry.  When people bring their own bags, who knows where it has been.  This is just another way to spread disease. 
Notice the date, January 3, 2012

Did I get a link?  Did I get any credit?  It is amazing what can get done if no one is concerned about getting credit.  I would guess if I wanted to look, someone else said it even before I did.

This is really a serious issue.  The environmentalists want to kill us all.

Ban the Ban.

  1. I doubt if anyone ever washes those things.

    1. The next plague we have may be called the Shopping Bag Syndrome if something else just as counter-intelligent doesn't come along.

      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.
