Sign the Petition Protecting Animal Sacrifice for Afro-Brazilian Religions

That religious intolerance is alive and well in Brazil is no news.  The latest development is that the Brazilian Government is making moves to remove language from the law that protects Afro-Brazilian religious leaders in their right to ritually sacrifice animals.   Please add your name to the petition below (started by Babalorixá Junior de Esù) in support of the rights of Afro-Brazilian religions.

Translation:

Millions of animals are cruelly murdered each day in slaughterhouses across the country!

Now, [the government] wants to prohibit African-based religions from respectfully cultivating their Gods with dignity to animals, freeing them from the painful and cruel deaths they face in large slaughterhouses, to feed the communities that follow our beliefs.

Enough with the intolerance…the constitution guarantees us a secular state, and as such this judgement is unfair!!!

Religious intolerance is a crime and if this judgement comes through, it will hurt the constitution and freedom of beliefs!!!

Autor Centro Cultural Esù Odarà/ Babalorixá Junior de Esù:
Milhares de animais são mortos de forma cruel todos os dias em abatedouros e grandes frigoríficos em todo pais!

Agora querem proibir as Religiões de matriz africana de cultuar seus Deuses de forma respeitosa e digna ao próprio animal,livrando esse da morte dolorosa em mãos cruéis e dando o mesmo destino que os grandes abatedouros,o alimento as comunidades que seguem nossa crença.

Já basta de intolerância… A constituição nos garante um ESTADO LAICO e sendo assim esse julgamento é improcedente!!!

Intolerância religiosa é crime e caso esse julgamento aconteça,estara ferindo a constituição bem como a liberdade de crença!!!
