Humans Forcing Human Rules on Others Worship God in Vain

You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: "These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men."

Jesus, Isaiah (NIV)
Commentary: 

This one should be obvious, prohibitions are rules taught by humans, usually prejudices, or knee-jerk reactions. Many of the prohibitionists are keen on saying things like, "we're better than them," or similar Pharisaical sayings. One such prohibition? The Evil Lie Purporting That Marijuana is "Devil's Weed."
