This latest episode in grovelling by politicians to the animal sacrifice industry comes as the so called Equality and Human Rights Commission has replied to Scotland for Animals stating that in their opinion 'religious communities' have the right to torture animals in the name of god but you haven't the right to know when you're buying it or being forced to take part in their sick rituals.
