Frequently Asked Questions

Are there federal laws that protect freedom of religion?

Federal statutes, including the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (“RFRA”), support that protection, broadly defining the exercise of religion to encompass all aspects of observance and practice, whether or not central to, or required by, a particular religious faith. 3. The freedom of religion extends to persons and organizations.

Is the government allowed to restrict religious practice?

The first amendment to the Constitution expressly forbids such legislation. Religious freedom is guaranteed everywhere throughout the United States, so far as congressional interference is concerned. The question to be determined is, whether the law now under consideration comes within this prohibition.

Is there an exemption for religious organizations under the Civil Rights Act?

Exemption of Religious Organizations from Generally Applicable Laws. The Civil Rights Act’s exemption of religious or-ganizations from the prohibition against religious discrimination in employment 197 does not violate the Establishment Clause when applied to a religious organization’s secular, nonprofit activities.

Is there a legal system based on religion?
