Letter: No Reason To Gripe About Cannabis Stall
Evening News, Norwich
Wednesday 24 Jun 1998
In his letter headed 'Sad sign of the times' ( Evening News June 17 ),
Gary Moore wrote that he was "amazed and shocked to see a stall outside
the C&A store on the Haymarket promoting the legalise cannabis campaign
whereas his Church had been denied the Right to preach from the same spot."
It is indeed sad that he has not been allowed and there is certainly a
good cause for readers to complain about that to the Council.
However, there is no reason to complain about the cannabis stall.
Mr Moore went on to say: "Drugs of any kind take people captive to
addiction. Jesus, however, promises to set men free."
In Genesis, God gives mankind : "All plants that bear seed, anywhere on
earth, and every tree bearing fruit which yields seed".
Jesus said: "Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but
that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man."
St. Timothy, in his First Epistle explained: "For everything that God
created is good, and nothing is to be rejected when it is taken with
thanksgiving, since it is hallowed by God's own word and by prayer".
It seems that Gary is confusing the God-given plant cannabis with
synthetic and dangerous drugs.
