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 2018-287: Since They Can’t Tax Flatulence, an Additional Thought

When I went to post about a meat tax I realized that I was not giving the elites all the credit that they have due.  It is entirely possible that they will find a way to tax flatulence.  We are battling smart meters for our electricity.  We really don’t need the government being able to control every appliance in our house.  My new I-Pad has an ap that will let me set it up to run everything.  I guess the millennials have no sense of privacy and are trained to let Mommy take care of them.  It doesn’t take much of a jump to believe that there could be a required chip in new toilets that would measure the amount of gas being released.  Then we could have a government program to retrofit toilets.  Only friends of congress need apply for a permit or perhaps they would be reserved for preferred minorities.  We are now required to install fire alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.  Some are required to have radon sensors in their basements.  Why not a methane detector.  Think of all the lives it would save.  Think about how we could rest easier at night.  Ultimately it is for the children, right?

This would be a special problem for older people.  We would be targeted and become pariahs in society.  We would set off alarms in public places and make the neighbors install huge fans.  We might be required to erect airtight tents over our houses.

My mind boggles at the possibilities.  I find comfort in knowing it will be for my own good, and of course for the children.  I am also wondering if I am getting enough sleep.

  1. Tents over house? Sorta gives new meaning to "greenhouse gases."

    1. It might also be effective as a termite treatment.

      Grace and peace
