Abstract

Freedom of religion has been a key right since the founding of our nation. Over time, the Congress and the courts have modified the interpretation of this key right. This paper looks at the history of the free exercise clause as well as some decisions by Congress and the courts that have confused free exercise jurisprudence as demonstrated by the current dispute related to artificial snow made from reclaimed water. The paper further recommends that the Supreme Court hear the current dispute, correct the mistaken decisions and urge change across the system by requiring Congress to specifically set forth the authority for their actions.
