Hate crimes law stating quoting the Bible regarding homosexuality could be considered inciting intolerance and be a hate crime. A Christian must not use Bible verses supporting such a position regarding homosexuality. I would go to problem. That's just one example of where the law could conflict w/the Bible.

    Lol I don't see how anyone can see hypocrisy in someone's written comments unless you personally know the person and their lifestyle. One can definitely see a lot of ignorance and, yes, some humor but no hypocrisy. Don't let it depress you...if anything let it move you to prayer.

    "As a christian we are to abide by the laws of the land (if they do not conflict with the Bible)" So, it's okay to break laws if they are contradicted by the Bible? This means you could be a christian, sitting in jail, feeling comforted by the fact that you were true to your faith. You probably wouldn't even be angry about the ignorance of the law you had broken. Interesting. I'd love to see it.

    So much ignorance and hypocrisy in these comments. It's quite depressing honestly. All the comments about how Jesus made water into sparkling wine did make me laugh though.

    G-MACK, Where on earth is your head at ? The word said what ? If God was to miraculously clean house, I doubt very much if it would start with a man smoking weed. More than likely it would be with the pedophiles ,embezzlers , and false prophets that run amuck ! You all can drink your wine, fermented or not, just let me smoke my weed in peace. Oh, by the way,pot will not grow in the dark, it needs light, for whatever he got pulled over for I doubt very much if it was divine intervention,and whatever do you mean by "debase" ? MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY SOME BEFORE YOU CONDEMN IT! LOL Perhaps your feathers won't be so ruffled ! 420 Peace

    And do you really think the Pastor in that church is the only one who does it? Burn one down Pastor. I think it is alot better than all these pills some of these folks are popping. He had to get a second job, the economy is so bad.
