So, the government can’t control the public’s access to opioids in a form in which they can be abused but it will be able to control the public’s access to marijuana in a form in which it can be abused? I wonder how that is going to work? Is this just a step toward the legalization of recreational marijuana? Like the legalization of homosexual sodomy was a step toward governmental endorsement of homosexual unions and how the governmental endorsement of homosexual unions is a step toward the governmentally mandated celebration of homosexual unions. Pennsylvania’s transexual Secretary of Health has told us in his twitter feed that we must celebrate this sin.
Also, please note that gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner, in addition to sponsoring legislation to normalize sexual deviancy (see other posts on this website) voted for the medical marijuana program, a first step toward normalization of consumption of dope.
So asks David French:
“For many believers, this new era will present a unique challenge. Christians often strive to be seen as the “nicest” or “most loving” people in their communities. Especially among Evangelicals, there is a naïve belief that if only we were winsome enough, kind enough, and compassionate enough, the culture would welcome us with open arms. But now our love — expressed in the fullness of a Gospel that identifies homosexual conduct as sin but then provides eternal hope through justification and sanctification — is hate.
Christians who’ve not suffered for their faith often romanticize persecution. They imagine themselves willing to lose their jobs, their liberty, or even their lives for standing up for the Gospel. Yet when the moment comes, at least here in the United States, they often find that they simply can’t abide being called “hateful.” It creates a desperate, panicked response. “No, you don’t understand. I’m not like those people — the religious right.” Thus, at the end of the day, a church that descends from apostles who withstood beatings finds itself unable to withstand tweetings. Social scorn is worse than the lash.
This is the era of sexual liberty — the marriage of hedonism to meaning — and the establishment of a new civic religion. The black-robed priesthood has spoken. Will the church bow before their new masters?”

It’s a slippery slope and some Pennsylvania Republicans would grease the hill.
The Kansas Republican Party did it. The Pennsylvania Republican Party should do it too.
