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 2018-286: Since they Can’t Tax Flatulence

In many blue enclaves they are taxing drinks containing sugar.  It is for your own good of course.  Now Powerline points out that the elites are moving on to a new target:  meat.  Actually the attack is not new.  You have long heard about cow farts causing global warming.  You have heard about how the grain used to fatten up cows takes food out of the mouths of children in third world countries.  Since you have not listened, the battle is being escalated to bring you to your knees.
“Another important addition to the conversation around meat is the PLoS One paper discussing health-related taxes for red meat.”
This is a quote from another publication called “The Lancet”.

When the elites (Progressives, Communists, Socialists, Democrats, Rinos, liberals) start talking about taxing something like meat you need to remember a quote attributed to Daniel Webster and John Marshall:
“The power to tax is the power to destroy”.
I heard it used as an explanation of why churches were tax exempt.  It is also something that has been used to attempt to bring down those who are too successful for the taste of the anointed ones.  Ultimately we need to understand that the America haters want to use tax policy to destroy the United States of America and hollow out your freedoms so that your choices are limited to what is best for you, and them.  They want to make the decisions about what to do with your excess income and when that is gone they will start in on necessities.  They think of Venezuela as a success story.
