    • How Serious Is the Supreme Court About Religious Freedom? - The Atlantic
      This standard may sound familiar—RLUIPA is the sister statute to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, or RFRA, the federal law which was at issue in Hobby Lobby. These laws apply to different laws implicating religious freedom—RFRA only to federal laws and RLUIPA to the land use and prison contexts—but both ask whether a religious burden is the “least-restrictive means” of accomplishing the government’s “compelling” goals.
    • A Prisoner’s Beard Offers the Next Test of Religious Liberty for the Supreme Court
      The justices will apply a familiar legal test to decide the case. As in the Hobby Lobby case, they will consider whether the challenged government regulation placed a substantial burden on religious practices. If it did, the government must show that it had a compelling reason for the regulation and no better way to achieve it.
