Connects them to God??? Hmmm......Wow. Suprising ruling. IMHO

This reminds me of the story where the Native American Indian Father fought for the right to allow his 4 year old son to take part in a sacred ceremony to where he would be ingesting Peyote.


(AP) A family court judge ruled Tuesday that a 4-year-old boy cannot take peyote at American Indian spiritual ceremonies.

In his decision, Judge Graydon W. Dimkoff wrote that "peyote is dangerous, and in general should be avoided." He went on to state, however, that the boy could ingest peyote when he is fully aware of the implications, is physically and emotionally ready, and has the permission of both parents.

The boy's father, Jonathan Fowler, 36, a member of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, had asked Dimkoff to reverse an earlier decision and allow his son to ingest sacramental peyote with him at the Native American Church of the Morning Star.

Kristin Hanslovsky, Fowler's ex-wife, had fought the request, saying she did not want to violate anyone's religious freedom, but giving the boy peyote could cause long-term neurological defects.

The next thing you know, some group will begin to use harder stuff, just so they can sing, "I'm dreaming of a WHITE Christmas."
Cheers,
