Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Colorado’s Marijuana Dispensaries


Frustrated with its lack of relevance, the Westboro Baptist Church has latched onto America’s weed craze in an effort to regain some attention.

The extreme church will perform its traditional publicity stunt, with marijuana replacing gay marriage as the church’s enemy. On Monday, December 29, the church will picket and protest the existence of legal weed at dispensaries in Pueblo, Colorado (near the New Mexico Border).

You can expect to see signs claiming that “Marijuana is Sorcery” and “Weed Kills Babies” and whatever the creative but insane church comes up with. The hate group will be targeting Pueblo West Organics and Marisol Therapeutics, if you want to a) go and show your local support for weed or b) see what crazy looks like in person.

Because this is what crazy sounds like:

The church claims marijuana shops are associated with sorceries because of their link to the drug trade. On an official news release dated December 18, Westboro Baptist cites the Biblical quote, “And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.” (Revelations 18:23)

In the same press release, the church defines the word “sorceries” as “witchcraft” and “the use or the administering of drugs”, among a few other definitions. [Christian Today]

Sadly for the Westboro Baptist Church, you’re kind of preaching to an indifferent, highly medicated choir. We’re far too stoned and content to listen to the nonsense you spew about the plant that’s boosting Colorado.

  1. Genesis 1:29

    Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.

    • Even a more specific verse to include, Ezekiel 34:29- And I will raise up for
      them a PLANT of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger
      in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more.

      A lot of Ezekiel, especially near the end of Ezekiel deals with end days prophecies. There is no other plant that can fit the description of 34:29 than the plant that the world knows today as marijuana, and before it was called marijuana it was known as cannabis. There’s been a cover up from mainstream propaganda concerning cannabis as well as a mistranslation of Kanehbosm.

      It kills cancer by apoptosis of cancer cells, there is no withdrawal symptoms after stopping regular long-term use, regular users of it have lower cholesterol and insulin levels, it has a greater nutritional value than wheat for food uses and no other plant species has such an overall use capable of so many products. Considering all of these things, this is why it has to be the plant of renown. The majority of the churches have bought into the propaganda hysteria over the drug war. The plant is being raised up and the shame of the heathen associated with it is being wiped away. It never should’ve been made illegal.

      Also, there’s never been a case of smoking related cancer where the user only used that plant and nothing else. It will be legalized in all states before this decade is over. There has never been a biblical argument for the prohibition of that plant.

      • Yes, I’ve seen evidence for pretty much everything you are saying here.

        Pretty much all you need to do is type words like cannabis or cannabinoids into a search engine along with words like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, apoptosis etc.

  2. hate breeds hate , let us turn our backs on these false prophets no publicity no cameras just the the sounds of crickets as their audience
