“A Rabbi, a Priest and an Atheist Smoke Weed Together”
by Strange Buds
“Many a joke has begun with a rabbi, a priest, and an atheist walking into a bar, but in a real-life scenario featuring the unlikely trio, there’s no punchline – just lots of marijuana. The two holy men and single non-believer agreed to smoke together in a new video for Cut.com, which captures them lighting up and discussing spirituality while high. The trio gets along marvelously while discussing religion, the existence of god, and what scripture says about Mary – Jane, that is. The clip appears to have been filmed in Washington State, where recreational marijuana is legal.
Rabbi Jim Mirel, Reverend Chris Schuller (an Episcopal Priest), and a man named Carlos Dillard – who characterizes himself as an atheist, but whose views in the video appear to be agnostic – sit down to smoke together. Both the rabbi and priest admit they’ve tried marijuana before, though neither has smoke in years. Carlos, meanwhile, says the last time he smoked was about an hour earlier. Before partaking, the priest adds that ‘most people who identify as Christian are probably not to down on smoking marijuana’, but ‘notes that there’s no biblical precedent’ allowing or prohibiting it.”
