Church of Lukumi Babalu Aye v. City of Hialeah, 508 U.S. 520 (1993)

“There appears to be a strong argument from the Clause’s development in the First Congress, from its origins in the post-Revolution state constitutions and pre-Revolution colonial charters, and from the philosophy of rights to which the Framers adhered, that the Clause was originally understood to preserve a right to engage in activities necessary to fulfill one’s duty to one’s God, unless those activities threatened the rights of others or the serious needs of the State.” Church of Lukumi Babalu Aye v. City of Hialeah, 124 L. Ed. 2d 472, 518 (U.S. 1993)
