Quote# 55258

Responsible pot smokers is an oxymoron in my opinion.

Possession of pot is a misdemeanor, unless you have a large quantity and intend to sell it.

Purchasing pot puts money in the pockets of drug cartels. So, anybody who thinks casual pot smoking is ok, is sadly mistaken.

Look up the effects of THC and what it does to your brain. Very destructive.

Why any Christian would think that GETTING HIGH is ok, is totally beyond me.
And where do you draw the line? Is dipping a joint in PCP ok too? What about smoking opium or hash? If smoking pot is ok, then surely opium and hash is ok too, right?

It destroys your Christian witness.

Would you smoke pot in front of your children? Would you allow your children to smoke it?

Would you offer a toke to your pastor?

There's absolutely no way a Christian can justify getting high.

All drugs are demonic in origin and it's one more thing Satan uses to suck you down and steal your soul. Drugs are linked to sorcery.

I'm shocked and appalled by the number of posters who claim to know "responsible and successful" pot smokers.

There's nothing responsible about it. It shows a weakness in their character.

Why do people smoke it? To get high. To relax. To de-stress. To help them cope with their problems. I call that a crutch. And I call that a lack of faith. When I'm having problems, I don't turn to pot....I get on my knees and turn to Jesus.

"When I'm having problems, I don't turn to pot....I get on my knees and turn to Jesus. "
So, you just use Jeebus as your crutch instead?

Not even a crutch, Devonian. With a crutch you can at least stand up.

Funny, pot actually solves problems better than jesus.

i dont like pot or people smoking it around me. but what someone does in private is none of my business if it isnt harming anyone else.

"Possession of pot is a misdemeanor, unless you have a large quantity and intend to sell it. "

because dealing drugs is perfectly fine.

If I'm not mistaken, pot comes from a plant. Your god supposedly put plants on earth for adam and eve to use, and your god told adam and eve not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge, he didn't tell them not to smoke the buds of the pot plant, so therefore, your god condones pot smoking.

"Would you offer a toke to your pastor?"
Er... yes?

Hey, I'm Dutch. Our pot doesn't come from criminals, cause it's not illegal

I'll take pot over God anytime, thank you

Look up the effects of THC and what it does to your brain. Very destructive.

Interestingly, I've heard recent research indicates that pot only poses a serious risk of brain damage when smoked during one's adolescent/teenage years. Adults apparently don't need to worry so much.

Why any Christian would think that GETTING HIGH is ok, is totally beyond me.

Fundie christians often seem addicted to just such a high on the emotional rush of a spiritual experience, the most obvious symptom being development of tolerance and constant, ultimately self-destructive escalation. Take all those morons, for example, who find that ordinary prayer doesn't give them the emotional rush it used to and resort to "spiritual warfare" in an attempt to strengthen the dose, or even crazier shit than that.

Responsible pot smokers is an oxymoron in my opinion.
Really? My sister smokes pot recreationally. She's holding down a good job, is a good friend, a humanitarian (Just got off from ORGANIZING a couple fundraisers for a deceased friend's family...last year, it was a fundraiser for the Children's Hospital.) so, respectfully, I'd have to disagree.

Possession of pot is a misdemeanor, unless you have a large quantity and intend to sell it.
And why is that? What point is there to that?

Purchasing pot puts money in the pockets of drug cartels. So, anybody who thinks casual pot smoking is ok, is sadly mistaken.
And why is that? Because your government treats pot use virtually to the same austerity to some felonies. If the laws were relaxed on pot growth and distribution, or even if it was government regulated, there wouldn't be an issue.

Look up the effects of THC and what it does to your brain. Very destructive.
Look up the effects of caffeine. Not much better. Same goes for alcohol. Nicotine is a pesticide. Rail against one, rail against them all. And I swear, but my many heathen Gods, that if you take my caffeine from me, there is NOWHERE safe for you to hide.

Why any Christian would think that GETTING HIGH is ok, is totally beyond me.
Provided is recreational, and responsible, why should it matter?

And where do you draw the line? Is dipping a joint in PCP ok too? What about smoking opium or hash? If smoking pot is ok, then surely opium and hash is ok too, right?
Hash IS Cannabis, you dingbat. And Opium is a lot more addictive. There's a difference between making the brain go a little swirly (as I understand it. Never tried, so this is the best as I understand the high...please correct me if I'm wrong), and using a painkiller. In the latter case, your body CRAVES the chemical after a while. Your body will create pain to FORCE you to use it.

It destroys your Christian witness.
So it's not that it's unhealthy, it's that it gets in the way of pushing Jesus on the rest of the world. Gotcha.

Would you smoke pot in front of your children?
Dunno. Maybe.

Would you allow your children to smoke it?
Dunno. But if I tried it, it'd be rather hypocritical to deny my children the right to experiment with it...and if it was with me, at least it'd be safe.

Would you offer a toke to your pastor?
Why not?

There's absolutely no way a Christian can justify getting high.
Why not?

All drugs are demonic in origin and it's one more thing Satan uses to suck you down and steal your soul. Drugs are linked to sorcery.
Says who? Just because some shamans would use plants to achieve a high does not mean it's satanic. It just means what they saw was just a hallucination.

I'm shocked and appalled by the number of posters who claim to know "responsible and successful" pot smokers.
I'm shocked that you think you can judge people purely by what they ingest.

There's nothing responsible about it. It shows a weakness in their character.
No more so than smoking, drinking or a litany of other vices. People are human, hon.

Why do people smoke it? To get high. To relax. To de-stress. To help them cope with their problems. I call that a crutch.
Yes, and the moment it's NEEDED for those situations, it's a bad thing. There are those that just do it for fun, y'know.

And I call that a lack of faith. When I'm having problems, I don't turn to pot....I get on my knees and turn to Jesus.
And how is that any less of a drug? Just because you're not smoking it, or injecting it doesn't make it any less so.

Think about that next time you take a pain reliver.

"When I'm having problems, I don't turn to pot....I get on my knees and turn to Jesus."

When I have a problem, I don't get high or pray to some god. I work on fixing.

3/19/2009 4:38:59 PM

a mind far far away

So, pot is demonic in origin. But didn't your god create it? And, if I remember correctly, pot, as a plant, has seeds. Didn't god say that he gave all the seed bearing plants for food? Granted, not everyone eats pot, but he still made it for us to enjoy. And here's the kicker:

Why do people smoke it? To get high. To relax. To de-stress. To help them cope with their problems. I call that a crutch

Now just substitute all references to weed with references to church/bible/xtianity, and then you'll start to get it.

When I'm having problems, I don't turn to pot....I get on my knees and turn to Jesus

Pot's easier to blow.

"Responsible pot smokers is an oxymoron in my opinion."

And you're just a moron, which renders your opinions useless.

"Possession of pot is a misdemeanor, unless you have a large quantity and intend to sell it."

You lot are all about being law-abiding until the government turns on something YOU want or need.

"Purchasing pot puts money in the pockets of drug cartels. So, anybody who thinks casual pot smoking is ok, is sadly mistaken."

Your neighbor who has a few plants in the closet isn't a drug cartel. Sounds like you're drinking that there guvmint Kool-Aid, mercy.

"Look up the effects of THC and what it does to your brain. Very destructive."

Very much like the effects of fundieism, I would imagine.

"Why any Christian would think that GETTING HIGH is ok, is totally beyond me.
And where do you draw the line? Is dipping a joint in PCP ok too? What about smoking opium or hash? If smoking pot is ok, then surely opium and hash is ok too, right?"

Normal, reasonable people draw lines all the time. Drinking a few beers at home is ok. Drinking twelve and then driving isn't.

"It destroys your Christian witness."

Who really gives a shit?

"Would you smoke pot in front of your children?"

Not right now, because it's illegal.

"Would you allow your children to smoke it?"

Not while they're underage. Neither would I allow them to drink underage.

"Would you offer a toke to your pastor?"

I don't have a pastor. I'd offer a toke to YOUR pastor in a heartbeat.

"There's absolutely no way a Christian can justify getting high."

You guys do plenty of other things that there are no justifications for.

"All drugs are demonic in origin and it's one more thing Satan uses to suck you down and steal your soul. Drugs are linked to sorcery."

After reading thread after thread where you guys talk about how you can't live without your coffee and sodas, I find this rather ironic. And I've heard some of you go on about chocolate in ways that should be reserved for Jesus.

"I'm shocked and appalled by the number of posters who claim to know "responsible and successful" pot smokers."

You're shocked and appalled at lots of things that responsible and successful people do, I'd imagine.

"There's nothing responsible about it. It shows a weakness in their character."

So does sitting on a website all day talking about how everyone is going to hell except for you.

"Why do people smoke it? To get high. To relax. To de-stress. To help them cope with their problems. I call that a crutch. And I call that a lack of faith. When I'm having problems, I don't turn to pot....I get on my knees and turn to Jesus."

That's the biggest crutch of them all.

I speak two languages, have a BS and graduated German high school with Abitur, which means I am allowed to go to university. I could smoke myself drooling retarded and STILL outsmart you.

>>"It destroys your Christian witness...There's absolutely no way a Christian can justify getting high."

Er, but what if you're not Christian?

>>"I'm shocked and appalled by the number of posters who claim to know "responsible and successful" pot smokers."

Awwww, well that's too bad. </sarcasm> Looks like your argument's been undermined.

>>"All drugs are demonic in origin and it's one more thing Satan uses to suck you down and steal your soul. Drugs are linked to sorcery."

Most drugs are derived from plants which, IIRC, were created by God. Many religions over the years have used drugs as part of their rituals, in order to "ascend to a higher plane," as it were. I even heard once that Moses was thought to have chomped on a magic mushroom or two to "talk to God".

As for pot being illegal, didn't that have more to do with the DuPont corporation not wanting their nylon to have to compete with hemp, the (then current) industry standard?

At least praying can't do any harm, whereas pot *can*. Seriously, though, if you're having problems, talking to those around you about said problems is better. And I agree; legalizing pot would stop a LOT of problems, and the people can be slowly weaned off it. Maybe you should try supporting one of those programs as a way to show Christian love. (I'm a non-fundie Catholic.)

Aw, I hate pot (barring a perscription from a doctor)

I can't believe I agree with a Fundie about something. I feel so dirty...

Two words: pot taxation.
Or, in more words: Taxes on drinks that contain alcohol. And alcohol makes far more damage than pot.

Also: Tempus for the win.

This line of thinking has given the US the highest prison population in the world. Most of it drug-related, and many of them for possession of marijuana. The War on Drugs fails for the same reason Prohibition did. Sadly, it's supported for the same reason.

"Why do people smoke it? To get high. To relax. To de-stress. To help them cope with their problems. I call that a crutch"

As opposed to a book of fairytales. As Karl Marx said, 'Religion is the opiate of the masses'. Does it not induce drug-like highs in believers like you? And the brain itself can create powerful natural drugs (serotonin etc), resulting in self-induced altered states of consciousness. Which act on the psyche.

Although I don't use such myself, it's a matter of personal choice if an individual wants to smoke pot or whatever. If pot is a 'crutch', then so is right-wing fundamentalist Christianity. In the latter's case, more so IMO.

WMDKitty, sharpen those verbal claws and let loose on this moron. Show no mercy.
