Which is more popular – church or marijuana?

See for yourself:

It makes you wonder about the statistics on Christianity in the United States.

    While no fan of pot, it is probably better than Jesus. On a brighter note, here is a happy story about an xtian couple growing up…

    This is a hopeful story about immature and ignorant people lifting themselves up via, imagine this, confronting reality, thinking for themselves, and shedding childish superstitions.

    Church is much more popular than marijuana; when you’re talking out the side of your neck. The gross majority of “followers” only pray to impress others like them. “Ooooh; Im much more devout than you, love me, love me, respect me!!” says the Christian.

    When Steve Harvey was all finished taping this show in which he made it oh-so-clear that he thinks smoking marijuana is worthy of major condemnation, how many cocktails did he drink? Alcohol use is responsible for way more death, destruction and mayhem than marijuana! Alcohol is a drug to which people actually become addicted. Alcohol rots your liver. Alcohol makes people aggressive and causes bar fights. Alcohol causes traffic fatalities. Marijuana use causes increased sales of delivery pizza and cookie dough. Is Steve Harvey telling people that using alcohol means they deserve to be sent to Hell? I doubt it. What is the rational for marijuana even being illegal? It has medical uses. It has never been shown to be addictive. It’s a naturally occurring plant that grows by the side of the road. It is a highly useful plant. Did everyone know that one of the largest crops that George Washington grew at Mount Vernon was hemp? You can make rope out of it. You can make clothing out of it. You can make cooking oil out of it. It’s one of the best anti-nausea medicines. Why is the growing of this practical, medically useful, non-addictive plant illegal, but alcohol use is not only legal but socially celebrated? Steve Harvey thinks that marijuana users deserve Hell. Why? Why is that? Can someone explain it to me? What is SO dangerous about marijuana that we want the state to step in and legally prevent people from having it?

    Tigerboy, this isn’t the marijuana blog.

    First of all (Hemp), I do not use marijuana. Not in any form. I am subjected to invasive search and seizure of the contents of my bladder through what I consider to be unconstitutional random drug testing. No one has any reason to believe that I am breaking any laws, because I DO NOT break any laws. I am a productive member of this society. I pay my taxes. I follow the law and do what I am supposed to do. Yet, with zero “just cause”, my 4th Amendment rights seem to have been waived. Why, exactly? I’m not sure.

    One would think that forcing certain work groups to abdicate the same privacy rights and due process that other tax-paying Americans take for granted must be for extremely compelling reasons.

    There is no comparison, between alcohol and marijuana, regarding the costs to society in death, addiction, or destructiveness. No comparison. I have passed 25 years worth of random urinalysis testing. I do not use marijuana.

    Questioning the fairness of current drug laws does not automatically make one a user.

    Secondly (Lou), I did not choose the topic of the original post. I merely responded to it.

    The thread’s question is quite juvenile.

    How about this spin. Whats more popular? Christianity or Atheism?

    “How about this spin. Whats more popular? Christianity or Atheism?”

    Biff fails to learn from history. Throughout history, incorrect ideas were the most popular. It doesn’t matter which is more “popular.” It only matters what is true. There’s no evidence that xtianity is true.

    But considering it in the context of Biff’s backwards way of thinking, what’s more “popular,” xtinaity or all other religions? Or even, which branch of xtianity is more popular? Yours?

    In other words, Biff, your “spin” is yet another in a series of idiotic comments.

    How about this “spin” – you have yet to produce any evidence for god, but plenty that you are a clueless moron. For your side you should have asked “theism or atheism?” But you can’t even get that right.

    Lou with another swing-ana-a-miss!!

    Was Hor watching an old recorded Yankee game where Lou Gehrig struck out? I guess we will never know since there was no real explanation or example in the attempted comeback.

    Hor with another completely unsubstantiated and illogical claim. Gotta feel sorry for those of his persuasion, they are used to having people feed them complete BS and pretending like it actually makes sense.
    Even poor deluded Biff is clinging to his pathetic “if everyone believes it, it must be true” position that is so clearly wrong that one must wonder why he continues to cling to it with such desperation.

    “Lou with another swing-ana-a-miss!!”

    Yells Hor from the outfield bleachers. He’s so far away from the game that he can’t see what’s happening.

    Hor, if a ball ever comes your way, lean over the railing very far to try and catch it. It’s the only action you’ll ever see.

    I agree. What does the popularity of church vs weed have to do with anything? What a stupid argument.

    I think Lou’s last swing was another strike out since he completely missed the reasoning.

    “I think Lou’s last swing was another strike out since he completely missed the reasoning.”

    No, I didn’t miss it. The original question was “Which is more popular – church or marijuana?” And “It makes you wonder about the statistics on Christianity in the United States.” The point is to question the validity of the alleged “popularity” of church.

    Biff’s “spin,” after “…question is quite juvenile” was “Whats more popular? Christianity or Atheism?” Obviously the former. But really, what’s more popular, church or marijuana? It’s not a “juvenile” question. But Biff’s spin is. What’s “juvenile” about Biff’s “spin” is that theism is “juvenile,” but most people validate their “juvenile” position on the fact that xtianity IS more popular than atheism. That’s two “juvenile” things about theist’s thinking.

    Yes, I extrapolated Biff’s original “spin” further than his intended meaning. But not to something that hasn’t been posted here before by theists.

    The saddest part it was a wiffle ball bat and he still makes no contact.

    LOL!

    #15 HOR Once again, any derisive point I might have made regarding Hor et al. is more than subsumed by his own inadvertent self-condemnation.

    I talked about the fairness of marijuana laws and was chided:

    “this isn’t the marijuana blog.”

    I guess all these snotty, insulting BASEBALL references are SO MUCH MORE pertinent to the OP.

    There is hardly any intelligent conversation on this blog. It’s all too much sniping and name-calling. Does anybody care to actually discuss these issues?

    marijuana is nasty, personally never tried it but still- but god isnt is He reall that bad? would you rather jump off a cliff or be in a perfect world? Baseball?

    People stop teasing other people(or atheists) about their baseball/ wiffle ball skill

    *Horatiio i bet you couldnt hit a ball wiffle or not for your life:)

    Is it wrong to smoke a bowl every sunday before church? why can’t i enjoy both equally?

  20. on 11 Apr 2013 at 5:32 am 20.Fluttershy said …

    That would be because both church and marijuana, mess up your mind…
