“I just think it's shocking how many of these young people wind up in prison and they get turned into hard-core criminals because they had a possession of a very small amount of controlled substance,” he said on his show. “The whole thing is crazy.”
So, instead of condemning a few people to prison for drug possession, Pat's now advocating condemning even more people to the prison of substance abuse. I have often wondered what blend of Orwell (1982) and Huxley (Brave New World)our culture would become, and we're skewing Huxley at the moment, with our Malthusian Drill, gratification culture, and enthusiasm for escapist substance abuse.
I've indicated before that Pat's open mic is not helping Christians anymore. It's truly time for him to retire.
