This petition had 426 supporters


This is a formal petition addressed to the following officials and offices: Florida’s Attorney General, the Department of Justice, all State and Federal government officials, all legislative bodies, all law enforcement officers or agencies, the judiciary, and all civil rights organizations.

We need to end the new form of persecution rising in Florida. The persecutors’ objective of prosecuting and shutting down the supply of farms animals must stop. Creative animal rights extremists intentionally amalgamate the potential mistreatment of farm animals for the purpose of food consumption with farm animals for religious purposes. The fusion endorses anti-religion animosity, stereotype, law enforcement abuse, public hate, discrimination, and defamation, which may place religious adherents at high risk of hate crimes, workplace and housing discrimination. Furthermore, it creates undo and unconstitutional burdens on both the freedom of establishment and the practice of religion by creating interference with constitutionally protected animal sacrifice.

The persecutory trend by animal rights extremists not only defames our protected rights to our beliefs and religious animal sacrifice, but also threatens our protected rights of beliefs and religious animal sacrifice. Coercion and collusion by government officials to interfere with our rights, thereby restricting them, whether explicitly or disguised, is not acceptable. Government officials are compelled by their oaths of office to uphold our constitutionally protected religious rights of establishment and worship as determined in case Church of the Lukumí Babalú Ayé v. City of Hialeah, supreme Court of the united states 508 u.s. 520 June 11, 1993.

Domestic animal rights terror groups are known to commit lawless activity and engaging in acts of violence. Numerous animal rights organizations and independent radical ideologues are classified as terror groups by the U.S. Federal Government. There is an active international movement to persecute and ban ritual slaughter and religious animal sacrifice. Church of the Lukumí Babalú Ayé experienced actions of persecution and terror from some ideologues in the past. Ideologues and sympathizers may be State Attorney’s, prosecutors, police officers, politicians, judges, attorneys, bond companies, and journalists. Nationally in the past six years, three anti-sacrifice cases reached the courts while most out of court were related to discrimination and defamation.

Church of the Lukumí Babalú Ayé members and supporters demand action and accountability from government officials in protecting our rights through any legal means necessary. We, the undersigned, demand action and accountability from government officials in protecting our rights through any legal means necessary.
