<<How is this for a plan?>>

Good plan. Good luck.

<<I think I should build a bit flexibility into my faith, don't you?>>

I think you meant this in terms of worshipping through golf, but it made me think about something else. If you want to worship Odin on Wednesday (or go golfing), then you'll have to reach a private agreement with your employer. If you're just a Christmas/Easter kind of Odin worshipper (all right, you know what I mean), then you might have more options when looking for employment.

I personally refuse to work on Sunday, but I can't expect the government to guarantee me a day off. I just make my expectations clear to my employer and if they don't like it, I pack my bags. My attitude probably limits my options a little, but I get along fine.

Your flexibility in your faith is a personal matter. Government intrusion in your faith is a public one.

But let me know how your plan works out. And if Virginia doesn't like your flexible Odin/golf faith, maybe you could try Thor/badminton worship on Thursday. If that doesn't work, give me a call. We'll mobilize an army of lawyers and get you that fortune that's waiting in Virginia's treasury.

P.S. I want 10%.
