The Boo Hoo Bible records the sort of joyous, wordy, free-association creativity that characterized that "underground" subculture.
Of course, Kleps et al made the too-common error of thinking that government agencies in the USA are bound by (or capable of) of logic or reason; Native Americans might be permitted to continue to induce sensory restructuralization through organic chemistry, but young scraggly-looking white people from Frisco are a different story. If the initial goals of providing a safe haven for acid-droppers had succeeded, the Neo-American Church might have surpassed the Unitarian Universalists in total membership by now; as it stands, this published "catechism" remains as a vivid artifact of its time.
If you want a genuine artifact of the hell-for-leather forefront of 1960s conciousness expansion, presented with libertarian rants, history, religious ceremonies and wild satire, you have it all here, in one nice little volume. Produced at Millbrook, during Tim Leary's tenure, by school psychologist turned mesacaline prophet Art Kleps, this book deserves a place on every library's "counter culture" shelf, especially as the argument for religious liberty still holds true, and in fact, 13 US States now allow non Native-Americans to use peyote for religious reasons. Way to go Art! My greetings to Boo Hoos everywhere.
I am ( was? ) the Primate of Colorado, Neo-American Church, and I approve this message.
