Jesus was almost certainly a cannabis user and an early

be little doubt about a role for cannabis in Judaic religion,” Carl Ruck,
professor of classical mythology at Boston University said. [Full Story]
Mythology professor, well at least that is
consistent with this new wacko myth. This guy probably did too much research on
the “medicinal properties of the drug” and thought
the picture of the guy on the ZIG ZAG cigarette papers was Jesus. This would fit in nicely
with the Jesus Seminar’s explanation of the miracle of the loaves and fishes as
the miracle of sharing. Jesus gave everyone the munchies causing them to share
the food. Well, you got to love professors at Catholic universities for their
inventiveness. How does Peter Kreft
put up with this nonsense at Boston College?
Update: Oops, I really should look closer. dylan points out:
No skin off Kreeft’s nose. Professor Ruck is a few miles
down the street at BU (not BC).
