    They meant freedom to worship God the way you see fit, as long as it doesn't go against the country's laws.

    It also means you can't make laws up that punish a given religion, unless there is a compelling interest.

    So you can ban ritual human sacrifice outright, but ritual sacrifice of animals has to be treated more carefully.
