Dear Dan: Smoking weed does not lead to demonic possession

by: Eric B.

Thu Apr 17, 2014 at 18:37:22 PM EDT


Oh brother.

But let me show you why smoking pot presents an even bigger problem for you, which is: It invites demonic infestation into your spirit. Take a look at 1 Corinthians 10:14-21:

There's ... no need to go quoting Scripture around here, so we'll just skip past that to the Precious Bodily Fluids argument.

The use of mind-altering substance for “recreational” purposes puts a person at serious risk of demonic attack because what you’re doing is rejecting the natural chemicals God already put in your body as insufficient to satisfy you physically and emotionally.

How about a little pure grain alcohol with your fluoride-free water, Dan? Oh wait, I guess the grain alcohol is a gateway drug to Beelzebub.

By the way, just for the record, when you try to -- in the space of the same article -- try to cite science and Scripture's support for demonic possession, you deserve the peals of derisive laughter that result. Consistency is a damn fine thing.

P.S. I am happy to report that, after decades of drug and alcohol use, that polluting your precious bodily fluids with mind-altering chemicals does not, in fact, lead to demonic attack. Unless by demonic attack you mean the occasional crushing headache.

This guy better avoid the Founders tap room in Grand Rapids (4.00 / 2)
He'll completely lose his you-know-what when he discovers that Founders brews a triple IPA called Devil Dancer.

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.

Wait (4.00 / 4)
Is this the Detroit News' Dan Calabrese?  What a screaming pack of jackals that entire paper's stable of columnists have become.  Well, except for their token liberals, and their often timid columns.  I don't blame them, though; they've got to keep their jobs in an industry were jobs are hard to come by.  

I had no idea this crazy ass was also a right-wing Christianist.  Oh, goodness.


That passage also refers to a loaf of bread (4.00 / 1)
Of course I'd never suggest that the early Apostles hid marijuana in those loaves of bread. No! Of course not!

Nor would I suggest that Jesus's long hair has anything to do with being a hippie. No way! After all, Jesus was a conservative, because God Bless America!

Also, there it is - fourth line down: (0.00 / 0)

Told you so!

(BTW, my score is 11 - assuming I can take credit for being a rock 'n' roller. What's your score?)

I got 8.

Not quite a sports "worshipper", but in this clown's mind I am.

And this dumbass (whoops, potty-mouth) still doesn't know that Catholics do not worship Mary.

8?? And you call yourself a Republican?? (0.00 / 0)
Must be one of those Bill Milliken-lovers.... :-D

BTW, does posting here among the heathens and idolators count as one of the 8?

Being Catholic, I gave myself credit for that one (0.00 / 0)
Even though you're right that we don't worship Mary.

I thought this was just some crazy kook. But he writes in the News? I feel like Mrs. O'Leary's cow yelling "Fire, Fire, Fire!"

Yeah, right... (0.00 / 0)
One study involving all of twenty people who smoke pot, is the first to ever find this apparently major change in people's brains. How many times have we seen this crap from the drug warriors and reefer madness proponents? When ten more studies fail to confirm the results, will they trumpet that from the mountaintop too?

Meh. If weed was as harmful as they hope, we'd see the victims of that harm every day. Tens of millions of people in the US have been smoking pot for decades, with no overt ill effects, and they still refuse to face the reality that this stuff is not harmful.  

And this Calabrese guy, who concludes from brain scans that demonic possession is taking place, writes for the News? Real life is more bizarre than any fiction these days...


Reefer Madness. (4.00 / 1)
I, for one, am glad that some is FINALLY thinking of the children.

Great Lakes, Great Times.

After they're born, you mean? (0.00 / 0)
Because BEFORE birth they have every right under the Constitution, including the right to bear arms and not be forced to let soldiers share the womb with them.
