Um maybe "Thou shalt not kill?"
That's common sense.
You just asked what I the bible is useful for law. I gave one
They will just borrow the morality from Christians. Not accept it.
It was funny reading the really lefty views of this board today. I would venture that None has read the Secrets of the Temple.
They nodoubt wrote that off as ramblings by a Jesus freak.
I really liked Secrets of the Temple. That was the one with Sean Connery as Indiana's dad, right?
No it was the one in India where the Indian priest was able to pull out your heart with his hand
See, religion rocks!
ohm rahm shivaya! ohm rahm shivaya!
Ha! Great, I never thought about an Indy freak.
Why would anyone have a problem with a business this stupid? The government wouldn't need to intervene; that business would go bankrupt in short order.
Tolerance should be a two way street.
It should be, but it's not. see Johnathan Vilma.
There is certainly a strong case that the Feds have purposely discriminated against the masses while protecting certain primitive religious cults .
Where there is exclusive federal jurisdiction or state law is not "racially" limited, peyote use by Native American Church members is legal and "racially" neutral in the United States. This exemption from federal criminalization is as old as creation of federal law creating peyote related offenses.
This law has been codified as a statute in the American Indian Religious Freedom Act of 1978, and made part of the common law in Peyote Way Church of God v. Thornburgh, (5th Cir. 1991); it is also in administrative law at the 21 C.F.R. 1307.31. The C.F.R. part dealing with "SPECIAL EXEMPT PERSONS" states:
Section 1307.31 Native American Church. The listing of peyote as a controlled substance in Schedule I does not apply to the nondrug use of peyote in bona fide religious ceremonies of the Native American Church, and members of the Native American Church so using peyote are exempt from registration. Any person who manufactures peyote for or distributes peyote to the Native American Church, however, is required to obtain registration annually and to comply with all other requirements of law.
U.S. v. Boyll, 774 F.Supp. 1333 (D.N.M. 1991) addresses this racial issue specifically and concludes:
For the reasons set out in this Memorandum Opinion and
Order, the Court holds that, pursuant to 21 C.F.R. § 1307.31 (1990), the classification of peyote as a Schedule I controlled substance, see 21 U.S.C. § 812(c), Schedule I(c)(12), does not apply to the importation, possession or use of peyote for 'bona fide' ceremonial use by members of the Native American Church,
regardless of race.
United States federal law (and many state laws) protects the harvest, possession, consumption and cultivation of peyote as part of "bonafide religious ceremonies" (the federal statute is the American Indian Religious Freedom Act, codified at 42 U.S.C. § 1996a, "Traditional Indian religious use of the peyote sacrament," exempting only use by Native American persons, while some state laws exempt any general "bona fide religious activity"). American jurisdictions enacted these specific statutory exemptions in reaction to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Employment Division v. Smith, 494 U.S. 872 (1990), which held that laws prohibiting the use of peyote that do not specifically exempt religious use nevertheless do not violate the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. Peyote is listed by the United States DEA as a Schedule I controlled substance.
Real Americans do whatever they want, within the limits of The Constitution and Bill Of Rights.
Pennies compared to the KKK's budget.
They're not hating enough!
Christianity is a fairly new religion, in the bigger scheme of things, and "borrowed" most of it's ideas and messages from earlier religions, and also from Aesop's Fables.
