Quote
A single woman living alone discovers a live animal sacrifice going on twenty feet from her back door in her neighbor's tiny city backyard. When she complains, her neighbor begins to threaten and intimidate her until she is forced to sell her home. Rather than put a stop to it, the authorities all take a step back because the sacrifices are being done as part of a religious ritual.

This is the first part of a documentary series that uses interviews, re-creations and actual footage to present this incident but also to explore the influence of religion on the daily operations of an American city.

Freedom From Religion asks the questions:

- When does one person's freedom begin to take away another person's freedom?

- What are the rights of a practitioner of a minority religion...and what are the responsibilities?

- Would we be better off WITHOUT religion?

Leaving out the sarcasm you would have noticed that my comment about calling PETA would have been better than the cops, because PETA would have brought UNWELCOMED ATTENTION to those in this neighborhood who are engaging in this practice of Santeria. Instead of the person being run from their home by the residents involved in this...the media attention would have forced them to leave or atleast practice this in a much more discreet fashion. I am still surprised at the fact the police did not show and make an issue of the sacrificial aspect of this case. Maybe the person should have called the cops and said Michael Vick was sacrificing animals in the name of sateria...I bet a quick response would have been had then.
