You know, I have tried to be patient and understanding with the religious crowd; however, outside the Muslims (and they are far from perfect), I'm really sick of the whole crowd.
Anyway, see: The Rigging of the Massachusetts Vote Has Begun, Part Deux
Also see: Mass. DA's Broke the Law and No on Question 2
I was undecided on this question because the globalist, moral-destroying George Soros is funding the yes effort. Not now, though! It is a BIG YES now!!!!
But watch, it will be DEFEATED because of the MASSIVE VOTE-RIGGING that takes place in this state!
"Ministers urging a Question 2 defeat; Say marijuana plagues community" by David Abel, Globe Staff | October 30, 2008
A group of Boston's most prominent black ministers plan to send a letter to clergy statewide this week, urging them to preach from the pulpit this Sunday against a ballot proposal to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana.
Isn't that a VIOLATION of CHURCH and STATE and ILLEGAL?!! Not when it is in the SERVICE of POWER, huh?
They are calling on the state's religious leaders to support their effort to vote down Question 2 on Tuesday's ballot, which would make getting caught with less than an ounce of marijuana punishable by a civil fine of $100, an infraction that would no longer be reported to the state's criminal history board.
The ministers compare their effort with ministering to the poor and feeding the hungry and said they are reaching out to clergy in every part of the state, including more affluent areas, for help.
Rev. Jeffrey Brown, executive director of the Boston TenPoint Coalition and author of the letter, wrote:
"We need people to understand that there is no good reason to decriminalize marijuana and every reason not to. As ministers whose congregations are predominantly people who are poor and of color, we look at this threat with the greatest alarm, because it is one with which we are already all too familiar. The history of drug and alcohol abuse in society in general, and among the poor and communities of color especially, is well known. It is a history whose pages are filled with individual and collective stories of pain, violence, loss, and wasted potential."
Which means PROHIBITION has NOT WORKED, Rev!!!!
The ministers and other opponents of the initiative - including the governor, attorney general, and district attorneys statewide - argue that decriminalizing marijuana possession would promote drug use and benefit drug dealers at a time when authorities say marijuana has become more potent than ever. They warn it would increase violence and workplace safety hazards and cause the number of car crashes to rise as more youths drive under the influence.
There they go LYING AGAIN!! We are NOT TALKING LEGALIZATION here!!!
Why must they ALWAYS ASSUME that the EXTREME is going to be the NORM? If they legalize the stuff tomorrow, are you gonna run out and get any? I'm not!!!!
You see, THIS kind of CRAP is why NO ONE BELIEVES in AUTHORITY!!! Because they are NOTHING but SHIT-SHOVELING LIARS!!!!!!!!!
Rev. Bruce Wall of Global Ministries Christian Church in Dorchester:
"My overwhelming concern is that I live in a community where if people felt they had a license to smoke marijuana, I think we would have more people utilizing marijuana. Marijuana has in every instance become a gateway for people to try cocaine."
Sorry, Rev, but that is BULLSHIT!!! Sigh.
When you can not believe a MINISTER, you might as well forget it, Amurka!
But Wall and others said they sympathize with advocates of the initiative who have argued that their congregants should not have careers potentially ruined as the result of being arrested for possessing small amounts of marijuana.
Hey, WHO GIVES a FUCK about the KIDS, 'eh?
Ministers ALREADY have a CAREER!!! Any SEXUAL ABUSE or PECCADILLOES in YOUR CLOSETS, reverends?
Proponents of the initiative, who have spent about $1 million to promote it, say the proposed change in the law would maintain the state's existing penalties for growing, trafficking, or driving under the influence of marijuana, while ensuring that those caught with less than an ounce would avoid the taint of a criminal record.
Yeah, the Globe gets around to telling the TRUTH in the BACK END of their AGENDA-PUSHING PIECE of RUBBISH!!!!
They also say that marijuana possession arrests and convictions are records that remain visible to many employers, even when the charges are dismissed.
The Rev. Eugene Rivers, senior pastor of the Azusa Christian Community and cofounder of the TenPoint Coalition, said he supports the initiative because he thinks it is unfair that someone can legally smoke a cigarette but can be arrested for smoking marijuana. He also said that black youths are arrested disproportionately for possessing small amounts of marijuana.
Yeah, a GOING INDUSTRY for the MINISTERS!!!
"Someone's entire career should not be destroyed or undermined as a result of a conviction or an arrest of marijuana - that's ridiculous, unjust, and irrational," he said. "There's no justification for such a punitive law, especially when there's a racial disparity in terms of arrests for drug possession.
Yeah, but the MINISTERS don't care!
Brown, in the letter, wrote:
"[Decriminalizing marijuana would only] bring more crime and destabilization [to urban neighborhoods]. For some who do not live in inner-city neighborhoods, marijuana use might be regarded as a victimless crime or even a rite of passage. For those of us in the cities, however, the reality is very different. Marijuana is a common denominator substance used in connection with many other crimes. Marijuana is big business where dealers do not hesitate to use violence to protect sales and turf. And marijuana dealers look at our children as their growth market and care not a whit about their health or well-being." --more--"
There he GOES AGAIN!!
So WHERE are you on the WARS, Reverend asshole?
And not only that, the ministers are FOR keeping a SYSTEM of RACISM due to the overwhelming effect the "drug war" -- government biggest mover of illegal (and legal) drugs -- has on people of color!
Of course, anything that might actual help you stay alive, this government opposes.
