Church of Lukumi Babalu Aye v. City of Hialeah, 508 U.S. 520 (1993) held that a city ordinance forbidding animal sacrifice (integral to the form of Santeria that the church practiced) was held unconstitutional on the grounds that the city government had no compelling interest in passing the ordinance, and that the ordinance was neither neutral or generally applicable.

Whatever your beliefs on animal sacrifice, this case is very important to anyone practicing any faith that is likely to be targeted by local authorities for being too weird for them...
