American Indians Given Veto
Power Over Federal Land

By William Perry Pendley - November 30th, 2007 -

This month, the entire U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will hear arguments in its reconsideration of a three-judge panel’s ruling in favor of American Indian religious practitioners. On March 12, 2007, in Navajo Nation v. U.S. Forest Service, the panel ruled that a plan by a ski resort located on federal land to make snow using reclaimed water, thus offending the religious sensitivities of American Indians who believe the resort is situated on sacred land, violated federal law.

The bizarre ruling actually takes the position that because the majority of the people who use the area for skiing, the activity the Indians oppose, happen to be Christians:
In the panel’s view, using federal land as proposed by Snowbowl and approved by the Forest Service is tantamount to a government edict that Christian “baptisms be carried out with ‘reclaimed water.’”

Yep. That is right. The tyrants of our court system have equated skiing to baptizing people, a religious practice! In truth it is merely a convenient distortion of logic to continue our court system's war against Christianity.

Welcome to the "rule of judges".
