    What do drug pushers and missionaries have in common?
    A principal aim of missionaries is religious conversion of non-christian peoples.
    A principal aim of drug-pushers is making money for themselves.
    The effect on recipients by either can be similar. Their minds get bent.
    They hallucinate things that are not there.
    What the tribal peoples of the world need are non-religious ‘missionaries’ who introduce schools and hospitals without any slimy missionary preaching about an illusory god who is said to be watching from a non-existent heaven.

    I see his point. He is anti-drug and anti-god; there lies the similarity. I, on the other hand, believe that it is far worse to spew forth religion than to sell drugs which folks are going to use *anyway*. AND, the purpose of missionaries is, in fact, to “make money for themselves”.
