Kentroversy Tapes Podcast # 19 (October 29, 2007)
Chris Bennett comes onto THE KENTROVERSY TAPES to discuss Cannibis and Hashish use in the Holy Bible from his book 'Sex, Drugs, Violence and the Bible,' a book he co-wrote with Neil McQueen.
KENTROVERSY TAPES PODCAST # 19 (October 29, 2007)
In Kentroversy Tapes podcast # 19, Chris Bennett brings an anthropological perspective to marijuana, the Holy Bible, and Shamanism to this weeks' show. This is a serious subject approached seriously -- by BOTH Chris and myself. Not merely wanting to provide a look at marijuana through the typical eyes of the stoner -- Chris and his co-author Neil McQueen -- treated this as it were an anthropology research project -- as this is how the book comes across as a thesis.
Chris and I talked about how he and his co-author did the research for this book, and as the listener will hear when they play the podcast -- Chris took this subject very seriously. This is no HIGH TIMES CHEECH AND CHONG type of an interview -- and Chris was all too happy to discuss the various aspects of the book.
We also discussed the medical marijuana situation in Vancouver, and it sounds quite a bit different to the atmosphere down here in the USA -- with their ZERO TOLERANCE policies which are aimed at preventing people's spiritual ascension.
Chris also mentioned the books' many detractors -- mostly Christians -- who are upset at the idea that Jesus could have smoked Cannabis as part of his religious ceremonies and sacrament.
Plus, we discussed much, much more in this enlightening interview ...
