A prior post reminded me of this United States Supreme Court case:
The SCOTUS had to rule on essentially the right to practice Santeria. The City of Hialeah had passed a new law against the unnecessary killing of animals, in the early 90's.
A church of Santeria was moving into town and now because of this ordinance it would not be possible because of their belief in sacrificing chickens.
The ruling was:
|The states cannot restrict religiously-mandated ritual slaughter of animals, regardless of the purpose of the slaughter.|
In other words: SANTERIA LIVES ON!
