An ad by a Seattle burger restaurant, inspired by the fact that Easter Sunday is on April 20 (4/20), which is a special day for cannabis enthusiasts. Of course, some people are already saying that the ad offends them. But in the ad’s defense, there is a long-standing argument that Jesus and his disciples probably were cannabis users. Though I doubt that argument is endorsed by the Vatican.
Money quote from the guy responsible for the ad:
“No one group is sacred,” [Lunchbox Laboratory owner and “practicing Catholic” John Schmidt] said. “Do you ever watch South Park where they parody everybody and every religion and pretty much anything?”
Update from a reader:
Epiphanius quotes the Gospel of the Ebionites where Jesus has a confrontation with the high priest. Jesus chastises the leadership saying, “I am come to end the sacrifices and feasts of blood; and if ye cease not offering and eating of flesh and blood, the wrath of God shall not cease from you; even as it came to your fathers in the wilderness, who lusted for flesh, and did sat to their content, and were filled with rottenness, and the plague consumed them.” [Numbers 11:32-34]
Thou shalt not kill. No one was harmed in the making of the spliff.
