True, the Babylon Bee succeeded in a limited parody of the fiasco, but the ritual was such a reductio ad absurdum that you have to wonder if anybody participating was serious. I hope not. Psalm 115:8, anyone?
A liturgy is for public worship. It involves more than one party--maybe there's only one worshipper, but there's also the god. If you have a framework of acceptable practices, it isn't implausible that you can vary this--provided your fellow worshippers agree. And that your god agrees.
But how do you create a liturgy from nothing, with no knowlege of what your god wants from you?
- Do you claim to be a prophet, who brings messages from god? About that--show credentials, please...
- Or do you simply think it doesn't matter, because whatever is good with you, will be good with your god? Who gets to be the god here?
Maybe I have "experimentalist's bias," but if your theory leads you to do stupid or wicked things, maybe your theory is incomplete.
