Welcome

In the final unit, students will examine the overwhelming support of the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA, pronounced riff-ra), which overturned the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision against native Americas who were denied unemployment benefits for using peyote in Employment Division v. Smith (1990). Students will study how RFRA became a controversial law at the federal and state levels in the context of three events: (a) the rise of anti-Sharia laws in the states; (b) the affirmation of the equal protection rights of same-sex couples to legally marry; and (c) the affirmation of corporations to exercise their religious beliefs when denying contraception coverage in employee health benefit packages. This unit will conclude with an examination of manifestations of “religious animosity” in two contemporary cases were issued within weeks of one another in June 2018: (1) the U.S. Supreme Court’s affirmation of a cakebaker’s right not to be penalized for his religious views, which the state commissioners publicly criticized; and (2) the Court’s affirmation of President Trump’s travel ban on citizens from seven countries, five of which are Muslim-majority countries, in spite of the President’s longstanding public objections to Islam. These cases will be examined in light of, in 2012, Protestant Christians becoming less than half of the population, leading the United States to become a Nation of Religious Minorities.
