Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts.
But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny.
Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything — all she had to live on.”
Recently New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was lauded for donating $30 Million dollars to a cause because, “Blacks and Latinos are not fully sharing in the promise of American freedom.” Overlooking the fact this statement is absolute hypocrisy since the city he oversees spends at least $75 Million a year arresting them on entrapment over tiny amounts of cannabis, and the fact Bloomberg himself admitted to smoking marijuana, “and I enjoyed it,” it’s worth investigating why Jesus said what it’s claimed he did.
However, instead of a full-length investigation I will use this opportunity to try to strengthen fellow abolitionists, those who are working hard to end the Evil Religion of Hate that is drug prohibition. Why? Because the evil overlords who are robbing us to perpetrate this gross evil say that we are the ones hoarding money. What a bunch of lies. Kerlikowski, Sabbet, and probably others have spewed that vile lie, destroying their souls.
The real truth of the matter is most people trying to end prohibition are just average people and often with below average sums of money. We do what we do because we hate injustice, because the enforcement of prohibition causes vastly more harm than drug use does, because we follow Jesus' teaching to follow the Golden Rule, because we hate to see the cities and societies we live in destroyed by the lies on which prohibition rests, because we hate to see the places we live go from friendly and peace loving to guilty until proven innocent.
I don't have an equation to give you, no charts to look up your future net value based on the amount of dollars, euros, yen, etc… that you expend to end drug prohibition, but I can say this, which is only what Jesus said. The more you give out of the less you have, the more God will reward you.
Here's another way to think of it. We all know that percentages are the best way to measure the relative amount of a thing. This is all Jesus is saying. He was no dummy. He knew that it was more significant for someone with $10,000 to give $5,000 of it away (50%) than it is for someone with $18 Billion dollars to give $30 Million (0.167%).
This goes double (at least) for people who work to end Drug War versus those who rob, blackmail, extort, and otherwise bully for huge paychecks and overtime from us to expand Drug War. You will be held accountable, you will pay back every cent! [Matthew 5:25-26 Luke 12:56-59] Even if it takes you 1,000 years [Revelation 20:1-12], and each of the days of those thousand years seems like 1,000 years in itself [2 Peter 3:8]. (Yeah, talking to you too you fake preachers, you false prophets of prohibition.)
But God loves those who are working to end Drug Prohibition, especially those who are giving out of their very meager earnings and holdings. You will be very blessed. You may call yourselves poor, but you will not be: Revelation 2:9. In fact if you look at that passage you will also see the part about how we are slandered by those who say they are believers but are not, but are a “synagogue of Satan.” Yeah, that’s those people, the prohibitionists, those who say “Drug Free America,” “Drug Free World,” those who blaspheme God, “DAMN YOU TO HELL GOD FOR MAKING THESE PLANTS!” Those who hold office, like Obama, and say, “we need to enforce our drug laws,” although the laws are evil as hell and only make things worse; yup, the synagogue of Satan who claim they are trying to stem “Moral Decay” but are the equivalent of torturers, the same as the Inquisitors who burned people at the stake to save them, tortured them to save their souls.
I wish I had something better than anger to give you, I’m sure you already have that. I guess one thing I mainly want to do is help the former believers, and those who are afraid of being associated with the Holier-Than-Thou-Congregation, please start praying again. Please ask God for blessings on you, and also for those who persecute us. We all need it!
