Idiotic Excursions into Stark Absurdity

How should Christians respond to another's contempt for the law? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 292)

This morning very early I picked up a 23-year-old friend just released from jail after five days of incarceration. His crime was having a small amount of marijuana for his own use. His court cost was $500. He was not a happy camper. I share his contempt for the law – at least the laws governing marijuana. We allow cancer causing cigarettes to be sold willy-nilly. We allow alcohol in many forms to be sold on shelves within easy grasp of children (and we don't even have on alcohol the minimal advertising restrictions placed upon tobacco). We allow handguns to inundate our land which pose a threat to all law enforcement officers even on trivial traffic stops. Forgive me friends, but sometimes I have contempt for the law because of its idiotic excursions into stark absurdity.
