    ❝If a ruler hearken to lies,
    all his servants are wicked.❞
    Proverbs 29:12

    If you want people to think you’re infallible,
    it’s probably best not to say stupid things.

    The Pope has made it clear that he’s completely clueless about drug policy, adding just one more data point to the list of the Catholic Church’s embarrassing blunders throughout history (hello, Galileo).

    ☛RIO DE JANEIRO – The legalization of drugs will not reduce the problems of addiction, Pope Francis said Wednesday at a hospital in Brazil dedicated to the rehabilitation of drug users.

    ❝A reduction in the spread and influence of drug addiction will not be achieved by a liberalization of drug use, as is currently being proposed in various parts of Latin America,❞ the Pope said.

    ❝The scourge of drug-trafficking, that favors violence and sows the seeds of suffering and death, requires of society as a whole an act of courage.❞

    Yes. And that act of courage just happens to be legalization. What did you think it was?

    What the Pope does here is simply mouth some non-sequitors and meaningless platitudes, along with using strawman arguments.

    He should be embarrassed, but quite frankly, I doubt he’s aware enough.

    And so, if his words are followed, the drug trafficking organizations will continue to use violence to get rich and the governments will use violence to go after them and the people stuck in the middle will die.

    Gonzalo Sánchez: "The total of violent deaths in the country between 1958 and 2012 is at least 220,000 caused by the armed conflict. Eighty percent of these have been unarmed civilians. It’s a war that has left most of the country mourning, but very unevenly. It’s a war whose victims are in the vast majority noncombatant civilians. It’s a depraved war that has broken all humanitarian rules beyond social and political objectives that multiple gangs could brandish."

    Seventy-five years after the American people and its representatives in government rejected prohibitionists’ ‘great social experiment’ by repealing alcohol prohibition with the passage of the 21st Amendment, one of the leading anti-libation organizations of that era these days espouses Reefer Madness and pseudo-science.

    Clergy Speak Out Against 'The War on Drugs dwr

    ❝The genesis of drug prohibition can be found in the actions of Episcopalian Bishop Charles Henry Brent, in the Philippines during the late 1890s. He believed the custom of Catholic Filipinos smoking opium made them impervious to conversion to the Episcopalian faith, and petitioned, some say blackmailed, President Roosevelt into supporting the first international conference on the scourge of opium, held in 1901 Shanghai, which ultimately led to the Harrison Narcotics Act of 1914.

    The irony I see in Pope Francis coming out against the evil of drugs, if one is to assume Bishop Brent was actually correct, is that without opium the heavily Catholic Philippines would be now singing in the Episcopalian choir.❞

    The Mysterious History Of ‘Marijuana’ npr.org

    ❝There is a point at which the law becomes immoral and unethical. That point is reached when it becomes a cloak for the cowardice that dares not stand up against blatant violations of justice. A state that supresses all freedom of speech, and which by imposing the most terrible punishments, treats each and every attempt at criticism, however morally justified, and every suggestion for improvement as plotting to high treason, is a state that breaks an unwritten law.❞
    -- Kurt Huber [The head of White Rose], killed by the Nazis in 1943.
