These characters like Levin don't appear on the scene by accident. Our country seems to have a long history of producing agent provocateurs used by their hidden puppet masters to exploit feeble-minded and non-discerning Americans. The anti-Vietnam, anti-government protesters of the 1960s, such as Bill Ayers and the infamous Chicago 8 crowd, including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin and Tom Hayden, have all been exposed by historical researchers as paid agents of U.S. government intelligence agencies. The renowned, leftist feminist Gloria Steinem was financed by the CIA's Cord Meyer. Even their go-to civil rights attorney, William Kunstler, got his start as a spy for the OSS. There's a common thread to these folks' background if you bother to check it out.
Today, the Times of Israel has a big feature story on Levin titled, "Meet the Jewish Grand Poobah of the First Church Of Cannabis." Levin tells the Times of Israel that he grew up attending the Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation, which donated to the infamous cult leader, Rev. Jim Jones, its former synagogue near downtown for his People's Temple cult. Respected researchers have confirmed Jones' work for the CIA. Jones, who made a mockery of the Christian faith, was recruited into the CIA by another fellow Hoosier, Dan Mitrione. The land where Jones' cult members met their fate in a CIA-run, human mind control experiment in Guyana had originally been leased by the CIA to train guerrilla fighters for its operations in Angola referred to as "Shalom Project." Levin tells the Times of Israel he'll be serving as Minister of Love at his First Church of Cannabis.
. . . The Times of Israel caught Levin in a phone conversation in his new premises on the south side of Indianapolis. The area, known for tattoo parlors and head shops, is home to a 150-seat sanctuary that has been used as a church for the past several decades.
Levin, a 59-year-old reluctant carpenter/head shop clerk, and his team of volunteers were in the midst of taking down all the crosses in the building.
“We’re nondenominational. We don’t want the responsibility of saying who, what, where and why God is,” said Levin. To the Cannabiterians, God is love, “and we celebrate love in our life’s great adventure.”
He said the church is basically “teaching the same things that JC and all the other good Jewish rabbis taught, but without the burden of the magic books.” In his church, there is no guilt, and no sin.
There are other revolutionary anomalies: Church dues are minimal. The 700 or so members have paid some $50 for a year. And grand poobah Levin doesn’t draw a salary.
At this point in my life, I don’t need money… I don’t need more stuff in my life… I have clothes that have gone in and out of fashion three times,” said the hipster father of five daughters — and grandfather to a three-year-old.
To free up weekends, services will be held on Wednesdays. (“We don’t want to take away business from the other guys,” laughed Levin.) Instead of a confessional, the sanctuary will have a “life podium,” upon which church members will celebrate lessons they learned in seven categories — live, love, laugh, learn, create, grow, and teach — one for each day of the week.
Instead of a Ten Commandments, the church offers a Deity Dozen, including: Don’t be an asshole; the day starts with your smile every morning; never start a fight, only finish them; and laugh often, share humor . . .It looks like Levin will be kicking off his church with potentially one less member of his faux church congregation. Levin's good friend, 37-year old Chaz Bennington, was found shot to death a little more than a week ago in his apartment. IMPD arrested a 24-year old woman, Ashley Daker, whom Bennington apparently met through an online ad soliciting adult services. "He had a wonderful adventure in life, and it has been cut short by some random insanity," Levin told the Indianapolis Star. "He was a loving father and son that always grasped every day of life by the hand for its great exploration. "His love will go on forever in the hearts of his friends and families. We will all miss him so."
It's too bad Levin's timing wasn't a little better so he could get an even better ride out of this staged production. How can he compete with the media histrionics Caitlyn Jenner has stirred up for the cause of switching genders? If it feels good, do it. Right? About one in four Americans are already hooked on psychotropic drugs administered by Big Pharma to make them feel better. What harm could come from getting more Americans to get their daily stone on from toking and calling it a religion?
I should have mentioned Bill Levin's new church was a featured story in The Daily Mail (a/k/a The Daily Pill) across the pond as well. Apparently, Levin is crediting the infamous disinformer, radio talk show host Abdul-Hakim Shabazz, with inspiring him to create the First Church of Cannabis.
Levin pretends that his ability to form his First Church of Cannabis was only made possible by the passage of Indiana's RFRA law, which is an absolute lie. His constitutional right to the free exercise of his religion was bolstered when President Bill Clinton signed the federal version into law nearly two decades ago. The fact he only decided after the passage of Indiana's law to make this statement is a clear indication to me that this is part of a much bigger agenda on the part of people higher up the food chain who are pulling Levin's strings. He's an actor, folks, who has always longed to make a living on a stage entertaining folks.Cannabis church founder Bill Levin credits @AttyAbdul with the inspiration to form the church, and Abdul wasn't there....— Vic Ryckaert (@VicRyc) June 10, 2015
