‘Christian’ position is an insult to Christ
In response to “Medical marijuana: One family’s plight” (News, Sept. 16), is there any other state where sadists get as much respect as they do in Georgia? Here, if sadists want to prevent anybody from getting help of any kind, all they have to do is organize under the banner of “Christianity” and intimidate state legislators. Time and again, legislation that would feed the poor, help the sick and provide justice falls victim to such groups.
The Christian Coalition’s most recent cause is opposing the use of cannabis oil, which has proved helpful to stopping seizures and possible deaths of children, even though far more dangerous drugs are prescribed daily for multitudes of Americans. I consider this opposition to helping children an insult to Christ, who spent much of his life on earth healing the afflicted and urging his followers to do likewise. Posing as a Christian is easy; being one is not.
