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 2023-004: Litmus Tests: Fireworks

Come the Great Divide I think I have found a litmus test to decide which parts of the country will live in freedom and which under the yoke of the Proregressives*:  The status of fireworks.

We got around to shooting off fireworks last night.  One of the lessons is that two years olds get bored with fireworks on short order.  Another is that five year olds would rather chase each other than watch explosions.  It is amazing what you can buy in Texas.

I was also amazed to find out that there were so many freedom haters.  Evidently the city of New Braunfels has made it illegal to sell, own or fire off any kind of fireworks.  There was at least one HOA represented at our launch which also banned them.  I thought this was Texas!  It just goes to show that a socialist camel nose will fit almost anywhere.

My proposal is that any civil entity that has banned fireworks be marked blue and placed in the Democratic Republic of Amerika column.  Places where it is still legal can be part of the Confederacy of Potential Utopias.  Places like New Braunfels can become city states in the old Greek model.  The right to secede will be easy.  All you need to do is pass an ordinance doing away with fireworks.  

We don’t need issues like guns, abortion or recycling trash cans.  All we need is enough love of freedom to shoot off fireworks.  I am not sure what the first step was, maybe requiring dog licences but the progression of liberty-sucking regulations is steady.

And while we are at it, we need a home-grown fireworks industry.
