Santeria scares the living daylights out of me. Not because I think they have any magical powers, but because they are like a street gang; willing to off anyone they think is going to get in their way.
Good for them! Get to killin' me some goats we we can laugh at them!
I don't know anything about what these Santerias believe, but I rather think the fellow has a point about religious freedom (even though, of course, animal sacrifice is about as hardcore "ancient mystical religion" as you can get). I rather find the city's argument about laws against animal cruelty absurd--I'm sure the manner in which these individual sacrifices takes place is no worse (and possibly better) than the way critters are killed in commercial slaughter houses.
Exactly, I don't hear anyone arresting the owners of slaughterhouses, or fishermen for that matter. Hell, you can clean fish while they are still alive!
I want to start by saying, "I don't practice Santeria. I ain't got no crystal ball."

Those damn Christians quit sacrificing goats 2000 years ago, so they think everyone should. Our courts should realize that religulous freedom only applies to Christianity in this country.
Did you have a million dollars..?
Oddly enough I did, but I spent it all.
If I could find that heina, and that sancho that she found
As long as they sell the meat on kebab.
Hmm, I'll pass on the goat kebob, but you enjoy.
It tastes a lot like lamb. I rather enjoy it.
Reminds me of a fake radio ad I heard for Pagan Days

"Come on out. We'll dance naked in the woods, have sex with goats and sacrifice some virgins."
