14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Thomas E. Ruddick on January 18, 2007
Format: Paperback
Not to repeat the comments offered earlier, just to note: Art Kleps, back in the tune-in, turn-on, drop-out days of the hippie culture, had an idea with a certain logic. Kleps and his friends wanted to use hallucinogens without fear of law enforcement. They found that the Native American Church was permitted to use Peyote (a type of cactus containing the hallucinogen mescaline) as a sacrament. Thus, they reasoned, if we incorporate as a church and name halluginogenic substances as sacraments, the government will let us use them legally.

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Warning: There is another "Neo-American Church" so-called Christians who were involved in all sorts of nasty buisiness. No connection, obviously, with the Psychedelic NAC.
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.

18 of 21 people found the following review helpful By The Aeolian Kid on October 2, 2002
Format: Paperback
... When you've searched everywhere else, and have turned over every stone, and you still feel like there is something missing from your life, then it is time to GET REAL. ... You may THINK that this book is a joke - but it is NO JOKE. ... Or, paradoxically, like the Native American Holy Man - THE HEYOKA - who does everything backwards from standard and conventional procedure; like Ken Kesey's Merry Pranksters; like the Buddhist Holy Madmen and Zen Master Sages; and like the true Christian Saints who are "Fools for Christ," those who have "ears to hear and eyes to see" the truth in the pages of this book will be called by the Great Holy Spirit to walk that Eleusinian path into the halls of enlightenment and bliss - even though to most normal people this looks like a Comic Book for Hippie Freaks! ... The Boo Hoo Bible is the closest thing you will get to truth in the English language outside of hearing yourself talk during the peak of a major acid trip. ... You don't believe me? ... Read this book; then take 500 micrograms of pure LSD and read it AGAIN! ... It will all be clear. ... Psychedelic - in ancient Greek - means "pure soul" ... and you can't get any more spiritual than that! ... YOWZA! - The Aeolian Kid
