We’re Weird That Way

A group of Santeria worshipers in Philadelphia might be in legal trouble for not “sacrificing animals humanely.”

It’s ok in the United States to practice a religion whereby you offer animal sacrifices on an alter but don’t you dare eat horse meat. That is illegal.

We’re weird that way.

"Religious freedom" is nothing but an ugly banner under which people break laws.

Are you saying they were not just sacrificing horses, which would be ok, but EATING THEM TOO? Bad, bad Santerians.

I'd rather they do it to eat them than to perform some ritual. The body disposal was also unsanitary and they left their dogs to starve while they were in Mexico.
