The Process Church of The Final Judgement started its operations in the 60’s, an odd cult which has been viewed as Satanic and has created much speculation – including that the Manson Family took some of their philosophical ideas from the Process Church (as it is better known by non-Processeans).

Text and Photos: Charles Nickles   I am sitting in the backyard of some pleasantly bourgeois Williamsburg establishment sipping something summery and bitter with an inoffensive name. Airdrop, maybe?
