“If Christ had turned straw into pot, instead of water into wine, we’d all be smoking up at communion.” — The Kids In The Hall.

As the world celebrates the anniversary of the rising of Zombie Jesus today, potheads of America are still trying to figure out how many tokes it takes before religion starts making sense.

In Denver yesterday, thousands rallied for the cause of fighting for our right to be publicly intoxicated– the first 4/20 rally since the state legalized the sale of recreational marijuana last year.

Do you feel the power of the Lord coursing through your veins? Fuck, yeah!

My, how things have changed. This is a photo of these same kids taken just last year:

We’re all growing up so fast, America.

As the world celebrates Easter and 4/20 today, the Wonkblog points out that “In the next 1,000 years, Easter will fall on 4/20 a total of 33 times.”

Like, um, this doesn’t happen very often, man! Still, it’s going to happen enough over the next 1000 years(33 times) that pastors and local churches refuse to be out hustled by the Apostles of the sticky-icky-icky.

Pastor Justice Coleman, founder of Freedom Church in Highland Park, Calif., isn’t judging.

Much.

In the Highland Park (no kidding) neighborhood of Los Angeles, a church is using medical marijuana imagery and catchy word play to attract new worshippers to an Easter sermon series called “Medicated,” about seeking fulfillment through God, not drugs.

Since the hippy-pastors in California are busy trying to convert stoners to Christianity, a church in Mississippi is trying to convert Christians to stoning, by “hosting a massive concert to denounce marijuana legalization with the title ‘Reverse 420: God Keeps Me High.’”

A massive concert to denounce marijuana legalization? I’m pretty sure this ‘massive concert’ is going to have some problems finding musical talent.

In the meantime, however you’re choosing to celebrating the rare convergence of Easter and 4/20, remember what Jesus said about, like, stuff.

Happy Easter!
