about this item

Through specific court cases, the author examines the religious exemption debate and whether religion can be used to legalize discrimination, when religion excludes a person or corporation from following a federal or state law, whether the federal government favors one faith over another when allowing exemptions, and how “religious” an activity needs to be to qualify as exempt. He describes the religious philosophy of the Founders and its implications; early cases regarding the freedom of religion clause; religious exemptions from the Gilded Age through the 1920s; later cases, including Sherbert v. Verner and Wisconsin v. Yoder; religious freedom from 1980 to 1995, including the Oregon v. Smith case and the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993; subsequent cases, including Burwell v. Hobby Lobby; and marriage equality, ****** bathroom bills, and other recent cases.
