Man Claims Pot Arrest Violates his Freedom of Religion

"An Indiana Rastafarian says his conviction on marijuana charges violates his religious freedom.

Jerome Scott was sentenced to 18 months probation for a conviction on felony distribution charges after police found about 150 marijuana plants while investigating a robbery at his home, reported the South Bend Tribune.

The 30-year-old Scott was shot May 19, 2014, when two intruders broke into his apartment and stole $1,700 from him and his girlfriend, 23-year-old Melanie Schmidt."

Donna Gets a Guru- Biblical Conversations

Donna gets into alternative healing, and God questions his sanity.

Yoga Miracle For Christian Man So His Church Does The Unthinkable

"If yoga helps a Christian man to walk for the first time in thirty-three years, does his newfound strength come from God or the Devil? That is the question tearing apart an Evangelical church in Las Vegas.

In the New Testament gospel of Mark, Jesus tells a paralytic man to take up his bed and walk, and he does. In the Acts of the Apostles, Peter calls on the name of Jesus and does the same for a man who has been lame since birth:

Peter said, “I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, stand up and walk.” And he took him by the right hand and raised him up; and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. Jumping up, he stood and began to walk, and he entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. (Acts 3:6-8NRSV)

So, when John Taylor prayed earnestly that a similar miracle might befall his fellow church member, Mike Persi, he prayed in faith, believing, and then waited. Mike had been wheelchair bound for over three decades, ever since an accident at age 27 left him unable to walk or to speak without stuttering."

Grindr Profile Exposes Anti-Gay Pastor

"Until 2 p.m. on Monday, the ‘Our Church Staff’ section of St. John’s Lutheran Church and School’s website described Reverend Matthew Makela as an associate pastor who enjoys, “family, music, home improvement, gardening and landscaping, and sports.”

Screenshots obtained by Queerty from a source who asked that his name be withheld shed light on some of the Reverend’s other favorite past times — namely nude make out sessions and sex with other men.

Of course, how someone behaves between the sheets is really nobody’s business but his own, except when he’s actively doing damage to others. We’ve seen it time and time again. The lawmaker who spends his days fighting against gay rights and his nights cruising for bottoms, or the ex-gay activist who isn’t quite as ex-gay as he’d like everyone to believe.” *
