  • Never heard of it.

     I don't care what anyone believes as long as they follow the law and do not harm any one else

  • Yes, this is where freedom of religion kicks in, it is just as valid as any other religion.

  • Sweet it is a kind of cross between a pagan and christian religion. It is very interesting.

  • I believe we live in america and everyone has the freedom of religion. So constitutionally they can practice whatever religion they want

    Answer by onemellowmom at 9:52 AM on Aug. 17, 2010

  • Freedom of religion means freedom of ANY religion (at least as long as they aren't hurting people).

    And I agree that Santeria is really interesting. I know little about it, but I want to learn more (I love learning about religions).

  • Of course they should, within the bounds of the law. Fortunately most places have had their laws clarified enough to allow for safe and sanitary animal sacrifices that don't infringe on their rights, thanks to all the Kosher food handling laws already in place.

  • Are you going to volunteer your puppy?

  • To a certain extent. The animal sacrifices are animal cruelty. Other than that I say have at it.
