How would Terrestrial religious rules apply to extraterrestrial organisms or vice versa? Alcohol does not affect Cynthians but Chee Lan smokes narcotic cigarettes. Adzel, while on Earth or in space, never has any problem with celibacy because he is not near Wodenite females during the rutting season.
I strongly suspect that human-alien interactions, if they ever happen, will not be remotely like anything imagined. Carl Sagan once said that we won't be able to go out into the galaxy and ask, "Are you fellows Prespetarians?"! We will be starting from scratch with no idea of what the rules are. See here.
