Heck, from the sound of it, even Grand Poobah Bill Levin sounds like he understands.
What I don't understand is Hite's out of left field comparison between Levin's group to Jim Jones' People's Temple. He owes Levin an apology.
|Chief Rick Hite|
The infamous Jones, a native Hoosier, was a mass murderer whose group assassinated Congressman Leo Ryan after leaving Indianapolis, moving to San Francisco and eventually to Guyana. Jones led his congregation to a mass suicide on November 18, 1978 and over 900 died.
Levin, who ran for City-County Council in 2011, has little in common with the preacher-turned-lunatic Jones. Levin's dedicated his public life to efforts to legalize marijuana in the State of Indiana. This First Church of Cannabis experiment is more to stick it to the man and spread the word that direction rather than do the horrid things Jones did. In fact, Levin is the anti-Jones, in my opinion. His motto..."One Love."
Hite's flippant remarks show should not be allowed to stand. He should apologize to Levin for the unwarranted comparison.
