On September 22, a law took effect that strengthens religious liberty.  The Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 prohibits the government from placing a substantial burden on an individual or group’s free exercise of religion rights unless a compelling interest exists; it must also be the least restrictive means of achieving that interest.

This is a good move and that is why the Catholic League was one of many religious organizations to support the passage of this act from the very beginning.
