I wonder how the ACLU came out in Employment Division v Smith (1990) https://www.law.cornell.edu/supremecourt/text/494/872
There the complainants (they weren’t so informal as to only use Christian names back then) protested their religious beliefs to smoke peyote should exempt them from general laws.
Did the ACLU rush to the government’s defense? I bet I know the answer.
Strange days when a supposed civil liberties organization jumps to big brother’s defense against an individual exercising her freedom to associate and contract.
‘Eric’ and ‘Bill' could have walked down the street if their business wasn’t wanted. People do everyday for any number of reasons.
Where is this woman supposed to go find a new set of creeds acceptable to the government’s new handmaiden: the ACLU.
