I'm not saying it's the devil... but it's the devil
Do you know who Klingenschmitt is? Well not only did he recently announce that he's moving up from the local political game to a more national level with a run for Senate but at one point he tried to exorcise the "demon" residing in President Barack Obama. Now he has turned his attention to the legalization of pot by saying that it opens yourself up to be "Devoured by the Devil".
Yeah... I'm not even shitting you. He's fucking serious about this, too.
Basically the bullshit in the video excerpt starts with:
"Let's take a moment and discern the spirits"
That should immediately clue you in to the fact that he's about to go all the way to 11 on the BatShit meter. He follows it up with his version of being very precise about what bullshit he is about to spit out to you by saying:
"There is a spirit of drunkenness inside some people.
I'm not saying the plant is demonic... It's just a plant.
I'm not saying the people are demons.... They are just people.
[...] the people interacting with the plant and inviting this other thing to come into them"
LOL Talk about sexual innuendo. He goes on to call this "thing" a "demonic spirit of drunkenness," which you would think would be part of an anti-alcohol sermon like "How to defeat the demonic spirit of drunkenness."
But no he isn't talking about alcohol because that's just fine and legal, well pot is legal too but it's sooooooooo scarwwy... please.
I find it rather odd that he has this opinion about the use of cannabis because apparently god himself gave the a'ok to use the stuff:
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.
-- Genesis 1:29
It's also quite hilarious that he uses another bible verse to warn of being "drunken":
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
-- 1 Peter 5:8
It's hilarious because jesus himself fucking turns water to wine. The mafucker was down to party ok.
