Nah. Many Pagans are extremely pro-Mary around here, especially in the
French Canadian Pagan community. 

As for animal sacrifice, it's an issue under negotiation. Some
Neo-Pagans hunt, some fish. Some see it as religious, some don't. 

Some religious practitioners in Canada DO practice animal sacrifice,
in various forms.  It's an ongoing debate in several Druidic and Norse
traditions. 

I know it is discussed, with particular reference to Voudoun/Santeria,
in the Law Enforcement Guide to Wicca.
