Inmate argues religious duty to deal heroin; appeal fails

In an appeal to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis, Timothy Anderson did not deny he was a heroin dealer. Instead, he cast himself as “a student of Esoteric and Mysticism studies,” saying he had created a religious nonprofit that aims to get the powerful narcotic to “the sick, lost, blind, lame, deaf and dead members of God’s Kingdom.”

    He should have weaseled his way into the 9th Circuit instead.

    No doubt this is pure lunacy to most of us, but honestly compared to all the other lunacy happening nowadays he is no worse. When feeling offended by anything and everything, when you can decide what your sex is regardless of biological fact and you have the state or some state agency backing you up, this lone nutter seems pretty mild to me.

    what magnificent bullshit, that man should be serving as a circuit court judge rather than the communist idiots they have now.
