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 2015-249: Green Pieces: How about Reusable Toilet Paper?

Currently the Progressive Environmentalists are trying to drive you back to being peasants by taking away the things they consider gross polluters and wasters of natural resources.  They are already attacking you car, hot showers, flush toilets, green lawns, A/C and the soap that cleans your dishes, to name a few.

Where might they go in the future?  Paper products have been neglected.  Think about the many variations of wood pulp that are quiet parts of your life and you just throw them away:  facial tissue, toilet paper, paper towels, wet wipes, tooth picks.

My prophecy is that the Progressives will soon start expanding their concern about how the forests are being destroyed and the land fills are being filled.  The only solution will be to go to reusable resources.  Can you picture reusable toilet paper?  Why not, they already want to recycle the water from your throne.

After all, we must save the trees.  Everyone knows that the greedy capitalists are cutting down 5,000 year old redwoods to make your Kleenex, right? 

Does anyone notice what usually happens in a forest when you cut down the trees?  It isn’t the picture they always show you of gullies and waste land.  What happens is, drum roll please, they grow back.  Really.  In much of the country keeping the trees from growing is the problem.  My understanding is that there are more trees today than when the settlers arrived.  Of course, you won’t hear that.  You will be told that we need to cut back to save the earth.

It is not about saving the trees.  We all love trees when we don’t have to rake leaves.  It is about abridging your liberty.  That is the love of Progressives, abridging, not liberty.  Remember a Democrat can’t make an omelet without breaking someone else’s eggs.

  1. My forestry professors in college in the 1970s called trees a renewable resource.

    1. I am going to guess that professor was purged as the left continued its takeover of education. He seems to have been really confused by the facts.

      Grace and peace.
