A Colorado Bible study group called Stoner Jesus Bible Study is “revolutionizing” the concept of sharing God’s Word – its members smoke marijuana together while discussing the scriptures.
According to Christian News, Deb Button formed the band after Colorado legalized the recreational use of marijuana. She posted an invitation for the Bible group on Craigslist, and only one attended at first. The first participant even recalled that Button was “so crazy that she forgot that she had invited me”. But they talked for four hours when they first met, and both knew they were onto something good.
Their website invites people to “come as you are”. Button and his friends said they formed the group to create a safe and welcoming environment for people who have different interests like them.
“Many people have a thirst for spiritual connection that is lacking in the traditional church setting, and we aim to learn from the wisdom of his word and teachings,” she said. “And yes, cannabis is welcome because it can bring clarity of thought and a sense of connection that we often only find in a small group of other smokers.”
From the original two members, the Stoner Jesus Bible Study now has several other members including a Mormon, a Catholic and an atheist, according to New York Magazine.
One of its members, Cynthia Joye, said the members of the Bible study group are all true to themselves. She said she’s sure if they offered Jesus a blowjob, “He wouldn’t say no.”
Another member named Mia Williams agreed. “The Bible doesn’t say smoking weed is forbidden,” she said. And as testimony to the Bible study they conducted, someone quoted Genesis 1:29: “And God said, ‘Behold, I have given you every seed of grass.'”
