Comment: FWIW, whatever the "true"

In reply to comment: Matthew 23??? (see in situ)

FWIW, whatever the "true"

FWIW, whatever the "true" religion is, it is CERTAINLY not your interpretation of your preacher's interpretation of the king of England's interpretation of the Roman Emporer's interpretation of HALF of the religious texts that were used over 200 years ago by a specific culture about a subject that is apriori in nature, thus outside of the realm of logic, reason, and proof. You think something might have gotten "lost in translation"? Anyway...

How dare you accuse me of patriotism!!! To even suggest that I exhibit an "insufficient" amount of any collectivist "-ism" is rather insulting. The imaginary lines that form the foundation of your partiotism weren't made by God, they were self-imposed.

My how your story has turned. You started out by professing the "true" religion. At that point I called you out with the, "aw lawd, another religo-nut that thinks he's got God all figured out"....... And, now, this post above attempting to accuse my of the same mistake you are guilty of. I can admit that I don't have it all figured out because religion is built on faith, not evidence or proof. Religion is all the things we believe in WITHOUT proof.

So, the golden rule is "cherry picking" Christian maxims? is quoting the constitution "cherry-picking" the law as well? Considering that the golden rule is THE commandment that Jesus told us to obey, I don't think it has any exceptions.

Everyone knows evil is wrong.
Everyone knows wasting your life away is wrong.
Everyone knows that consuming anything to the point of incoherence is wrong.

What you are missing is the link between these wrongs and cannabis. Considering that the highest practitioners of your religion used it in their rituals, good luck with that... And, no, quoting vague passages about smiting foes, hypocrites, and "True Scotsmen" does NOT establish this link.

Control freaks have been trying to find something, anything, that be used to show that cannabis causes some kind, any kind, of harm. Trust me, if they ever do succeed, they'll waste no time spreading the news. Until then, "Reefer Madness" is all you got.
