There are two religion clauses in the First Amendment: The Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause. This presentation focuses on the Free Exercise Clause, including the general rule, exceptions to the general, and a discussion of the major cases. It also poses some questions for you to consider as you think about what "sincerely held religious beliefs" ought to be protected under the Free Exercise Clause. This YouTube Channel is designed to provide my students supplemental instruction, as I teach them remotely. I want them to "take a soak" in the law and not a quick shower. This Channel is also designed to provide learning to the broader community. Learning can lead to enlightenment, and enlightenment to justice...or, at least, to a taste of justice.
