"We need a robust and healthy religious freedom in our nation. We need laws like the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act to protect people of deep faith convictions when their practice is threatened. This act…ensures that, when government authorities would impose a practice that conflicts with the deeply held religious beliefs of some, the government must make a special showing to justify both the ends and the means. The government's ends must be compelling, and it must choose the means, among all those available, that is the least restrictive of religious exercise."
Joseph Kurtz, USCCB President
