Church Sign Advocates Legalization of Marijuana


Daily RFT reader Thomas Crone forwarded us the following pic snapped yesterday in Brooklyn, Illinois. Crone tells us he pulled his car over to text someone when -- like Moses confronted by the burning bush -- he couldn't help but notice this Godly message staring him in the face.

We were unable to reach the First Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church or the good Rev. R.W. Thomas by phone to discuss the sign. It seems the church (a stone's throw away from strip clubs Roxy's, PT's, The Pink Slip and Bottoms Up) has been out of business for some time, which seems to make sense.

If you're stoned to the bejesus, who can really make it to church?
