White House Seeks Ban on Religious Tea
    #3763339 - 02/10/05 07:52 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Sorry if this is a repost. Look what Bush is doing to save the children now.......

Yahoo News

Quote:

WASHINGTON - The Bush administration asked the Supreme Court on Thursday to block a New Mexico church from using hallucinogenic tea that the government contends is illegal and potentially dangerous.



The appeal from Attorney General Alberto Gonzales argues that a lower court was wrong to allow the Brazil-based O Centro Espirita Beneficiente Uniao do Vegetal to import and use the hoasca tea as part of its religious services.


"The court's decision has mandated that the federal government open the nation's borders to the importation, circulation and usage of a mind-altering hallucinogen and threatens to inflict irreparable harm on international cooperation in combating transnational narcotics trafficking," the filing states.


The church, which has about 140 members in the United States and 8,000 worldwide, said the herbal brew is a central sacrament in its religious practice, which is a blend of Christian beliefs and traditions rooted in the Amazon basin.


The group has won several rounds at the lower courts, most recently at the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (news - web sites) in November.


In December, the Supreme Court lifted a temporary stay that allowed the church to immediately use the tea after its court victories. The Justice Department (news - web sites) had argued they should be blocked from doing so until it filed a formal appeal, which it did Thursday.


If the high court agrees to hear the case, it won't be heard until next term.


The church's U.S. operations are based in Santa Fe, N.M.

I wonder if there's anything left to take away from them after this. Is there anything that they still enjoy?

Actually, during the Clinton years, President Clinton relegalize the sacramental use of peyote for Native Americans on reservation land. So if the US made Ayahuasca illegal (and that would have to name a ton of different plants) they would still have to create an additional bill to go after peyote again. This could go thru, but would look horrible in that one year its legal and the next its illegal. It also is horrible because the Native Americans are supposed to have an exceptionally free "freedom of religion." They have their own laws and are entitled to their own customs so long as they do not infringe on standard US laws.
Whoever makes these plants illegal should well understand that they are not an enemy to people but to nature and to the way of Someone who sees.

What makes you so sure he isn't still one, having the SS slip him some "make-up" to "powder his nose"?

Disclaimer: I entirely support our current president and think he is the messiah.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
"Fear is the great barrier to human growth." ~ Dr. Robert Monroe
