    Justice John Roberts Permits Illegal Drugs in Church

    Justice John Roberts Permits Illegal Drugs in Church

    Tuesday February 21st, 2006. This is show # 37.

    BEST QUOTE OF THE SHOW:
    John Roberts, I thought he was a strict constructionist. I thought that was his big schtick. ...Why didn't John Roberts say, "You know what? The Constitution says in Article 6, 'All treaties made under the authority of the United States shall be the supreme law of the land.' We made a treaty as the United States of America...not to import DMT to fight against the importation of drugs including [DMT]. And so that treaty should take precedence over our own opinion that religious liberties should outweigh a prohibition of this illegal drug.'"

    ...What happened to original intent?

    BEST QUOTE OF THE SHOW:
    DMT is a short lasting hallucinagen, which means it won't have an impact on worker performance. Opiates, marijuana, heroin... the illegal drugs have an impact on worker performance which has an impact on productivity and profits. If and as soon as DMT turns up on a national report of worker productivity, it will be illegal again in a nano second. So does booze, but everyone partakes of booze, including Judges.

    I suspect it is just part of Pastor Enyart's rant against any judges who do not toe his (Pastor Enyart's) line and his particular interpretation of God and His Word. The Taliban is OK as long as it is his Taliban.

    Enyart really needs to get over himself, not that I hold out hope.

    Roberts made the right call: allowing the state to meddle with a sect's liturgy would set a very dangerous precedent.

    You'd think that a pastor would see the danger in this. What happens if a "treaty" takes over Bob's religious liberty?

    Looks like I struck the appropriate nerve.

    Got confirmation from Johnny.

    BEST QUOTE OF THE SHOW:
    What evidence is there that there are illegal drugs in the church? If there were compelling evidence, then Roberts might have ruled in favor of a search.

    Please, something besides FAUX News or World Nut Daily!

    Cool

    So the Bush / re-publican "christian" judge is pro-drugs.


    interesting.

    Next thing you know he'll let a violent murderer of the hook.
    Oh wait, he already did that.

    He's defending the rights of a religious group. There is no pleasing you people.

    He made the right call on this one. It remains to be seen what else Roberts does throughout his career but this time he made a good decision.
