Such Hypocrisy!

Religious freedom?

What is going on here and what is the purpose? What shameful behavior by human beings.

“The Arkansas House has approved a religious freedom measure that mirrors the one signed into law last week in Indiana that opponents there say opens the door to discrimination against gays and lesbians.

“Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Monday that he’d sign the measure.

“Fourteen other states are considering similar proposals this year, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.”

I think they are thinking about it.

A N D…

“Could Indiana’s new religious freedom law be used as legal justification for smoking marijuana? Maybe.
The First Church of Cannabis Inc. has been approved by Indiana officials after the state’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act was signed into law last week.

“Bill Levin, founder of the church, reportedly filed paperwork almost immediately after Gov. Mike Pence signed the act into law last Thursday with hopes of having the church approved as a religious organization “based on love and understanding with compassion for all.”

The church lists cannabis, also called “the healing plant,” as its sacrament.

“It is our fountain of health, our love, curing us from illness and depression. We embrace it with our whole heart and spirit, individually and as a group,” according to the church’s “New Deity Dozen.”

  1. I have been Methodist all my life–CME to be exact. One day they will come for non mainstream Methodist–AME, CME, AME Zion. Then the Missionary Baptist, and so on. While I do not agree with certain groups lifestyle Christ has taught me to love. I don’t know what bible they read from that tells them to discriminate.
