Rev. Craig X. Rubin is a nutball. He runs Temple 420, whose purpose is to dispense and consume marijuana under the auspices of an organized religion. Any objective person can see this as a fraud. The fact that it happen in la la land here in Los Angeles only makes it worse. Last week, Rubin was busted. I noted the incident, and then did some light reading to prep for a potential post. I was going to let the issue pass, but a post by Cavman Considers started me down another path. Caveman said:
I’m thinking the free exercise of religion doesn’t cover this weirdness
Really? Is smoking pot in church any different than dancing with poisonous snakes? What about a congregation rolling around on the floor of a Pentecostal church while speaking in tongues? Is there really a difference? None of it makes sense. It is all make believe. I cannot really call Rubin a nutball, I would have to call every pastor a nutball. I guess he qualifies as normal.
