The ACLU is suing because Indiana's law requires that registered sex offenders not attend any church services in a building that might otherwise be a school or preschool ( even when the school is not in session ). To do so would be a felony offense.

Amen to that.

That reminds me, how's our BUDdies at the Church of Cannabis doing?

Not real well. They had their first service, which was smoke free:

Actually, I commend the cannabis guy for thinking straight. Rather than light up and be arrested that day, he stated that he wanted to get his day in civil court. I think he has a much better chance of winning his case if he does it in a more non-confrontational manner. He seems to be doing it the right way.

Gotta love the comments from one of the protesters about the cannabis church. "It's an affront to Christians. "

Yeah, what is that all about? There are many, many churches that aren't Christian, so what specifically about this one is bad?

I read previously that they got tax exempt status.

"Church".. "Church". It's really one of those strange words you can say too many times and it doesn't sound like a word anymore... "Church"...

Anyway, if I had to guess, I'd think the affront comes from someone making any sort of 'church' that really isn't a church at all. It's a sham akin to just sticking 'i' in front of something to legitimize it (i.e. 'iPoop', 'iBooger', etc.).

"Five cents, please," his front door said when he tried to open it. The toll door had an innate stubborness to it... UBIK
