Military Court Rules on RFRA Bible Verse Case

All New Briefs

Armed Forces Court of Appeals Interprets RFRA In Military Context: Two appeals judges ruled, “Appellant has failed to identify the sincerely held religious belief that made placing the signs important to her exercise of religion or how the removal of the signs substantially burdened her exercise of religion in some other way.”  The dissenting judge argues, “The majority instead has chosen to impose a stringent, judicially made legal standard in this and future religious liberty cases that is not supported by the provisions of RFRA. Contrary to the majority’s holding, the plain language of the statute does not empower judges to curtail various manifestations of sincere religious belief simply by arbitrarily deciding that a certain act was not “important” to the believer’s exercise of religion.”
