Jack-booted thugs attack church

The Supreme Court is going to hear a case on using psychedelic drugs in religious ceremonies. The appeals court rightly ruled in favor of the church, and the Supremes should have thrown the Bush administration's appeal in the crapper. Instead, they are going to hear the case, and they ought to rule decisively on the side of freedom.

The church should win this case, of course. It's about the right to control one's own consciousness. What's more fundamental than that? How can anyone possibly argue that there is a constitutional right to rip apart a baby in your womb, but not a constitutional right to do as you please with your own mind? Asshats!

More information about hoasca (ayahuasca) is here. I took ayahuasca prepared by a shaman in the Peruvian Amazon a few years back, and it was one of the most incredible trips of my life.

I wish we could get all the baby boomers to try DMT.
