THE SENSATIONALIST REACTION BEGINS

Here's an early mainstream media reaction to the recent court victory for Santo Daime in the US as presented by ABC News.

The good news is that people tell me that something similar happened in Brazil when Santo Daime was first made legitimate. Eventually it all quieted down. Nowadays, Santo Daime receives very fair, balanced and even favorable treatment in Brazil's mainstream media. Here is O GLOBO's treatment in it's extremely popular family magazine, FANTASTICO. More recently, Mestre Irineu and Santo Daime were featured in 3 episodes of a popular mini-series called Amaz├┤nia.

Of course, the fear-mongers can become a serious problem but, for now, let's hope and pray that things will settle down as they have in Brazil.
