The purpose of this paper is to find out how the solution to the application of ...

Michael Perry's Integrative Political Visioin, M. Cathleen Kaveny 2022 Boston College Law School

Michael Perry's Integrative Political Visioin, M. Cathleen Kaveny

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

My purpose in the Essay is to explore the integrative nature of Perry’s writings. Perry’s work highlights and acknowledges the communally informed moral-political judgments that are at stake in Fourteenth Amendment jurisprudence. Perry’s ability to draw on different sources and perspectives allows him to cut across rigid jurisprudential and ideological lines in his approach to constitutional controversies, such as abortion and same-sex marriage. In so doing, he may be able to reach the significant portion of Americans in the political and moral middle who do not line up fully behind either side in the culture wars.


A Nun, A Synagogue Janitor, And A Social Work Professor Walk Up To The Bar: The Expanding Ministerial Exception, Patrick Hornbeck 2022 Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Fordham University

A Nun, A Synagogue Janitor, And A Social Work Professor Walk Up To The Bar: The Expanding Ministerial Exception, Patrick Hornbeck

Buffalo Law Review

Some employees who hold significant positions within some religious organizations fall outside the protections of certain laws, especially employment discrimination laws. But which employees, which organizations, and which laws? In its 2020 decision in Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru, the Supreme Court reaffirmed the “ministerial exception” doctrine, a constitutional immunity that is “extraordinarily potent” where applicable.1 The doctrine exempts religious employers from liability for nearly all forms of discrimination, some torts, and some breaches of contract, even when an employer does not act for religious reasons.

This Article argues that Our Lady of Guadalupe School marks a ...


Political Partisanship And Sincere Religious Conviction, Mark Satta 2022 Brigham Young University Law School

Political Partisanship And Sincere Religious Conviction, Mark Satta

BYU Law Review

In order for a religious conviction to receive protection under the First Amendment or the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), it must be a sincere religious conviction. Some critics of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby have suggested that the plaintiffs in that case and in related cases were motivated more by political ideology than by sincere religious conviction. The remedy, they argue, is for courts to be quicker to scrutinize claims of religious sincerity. In this Article, I consider another possibility—namely, that current sociopolitical partisanship in the United States has eroded a clear distinction ...

Praying For America: The Anti-Theocracy And Equal Status Principles Of The Free Exercise, Equal Protection And Establishment Clauses, Corey Brettschneider 2022 Brigham Young University Law School

Praying For America: The Anti-Theocracy And Equal Status Principles Of The Free Exercise, Equal Protection And Establishment Clauses, Corey Brettschneider

BYU Law Review

In this essay I argue that the Constitution’s Equal Protection, Establishment, and Free Exercise Clauses share common principled limits on the role that religion can play in public life. Specifically, drawing on the free-exercise case of Church of the Lukumi Babalu Aye, Inc. v. City of Hialeah, the equal protection case of Romer v. Evans, and the establishment clause case of Town of Greece v. Galloway, I propose two principles to describe the proper place of religious justification as a basis for law. The first requirement is that in addition to any religious reasons for laws, the state must ...

Liberalism, Catholic Integralism, And The Question Of Religious Freedom, Xavier Foccroulle Ménard, Anna Su 2022 Brigham Young University Law School

Liberalism, Catholic Integralism, And The Question Of Religious Freedom, Xavier Foccroulle Ménard, Anna Su

BYU Law Review

This Article investigates new Catholic integralism and its critique of liberalism and aims to answer whether a liberal idea of religious freedom is possible under an integralist regime. To do so, we first sketch the respective views of liberalism and Catholic integralism on each other, with an emphasis on integralism. For integralism, liberalism is not merely a political phenomenon, but a comprehensive worldview with hidden metaphysical and theological implications. Integralism views the function of political rule as ordering human beings to their final cause. We specifically delve in foundational Catholic principles to guide rulers when governing—prudence and subsidiarity—to ...


Can Islamic Law Principles Regarding Settlement Of Criminal Disputes Solve The Problem Of The U.S. Mass Incarceration?, Amin R. Yacoub, Becky Briggs 2022 Pepperdine University

Can Islamic Law Principles Regarding Settlement Of Criminal Disputes Solve The Problem Of The U.S. Mass Incarceration?, Amin R. Yacoub, Becky Briggs

Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal

The mass incarceration crisis in the United States (US) remains a vexing issue to this day. Although the US incarcerated population has decreased by twenty-five percent amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the US remains a leading country in the number of incarcerated people per capita. Focusing on Islamic law principles governing settlement in criminal cases, the rehabilitative approach of the Icelandic criminal justice model, and the powerful role of prosecutors in serving justice, this research argues that integrating settlement and mediation into the prosecutorial proceedings will significantly reduce mass incarceration in the US.

The Role Of Activities Of Sheikh Zayniddin And His Mausoleum In The Spiritual Life Of Tashkent, Nematullo Mukhamedov

The Light of Islam

In medieval sources, the city of Tashkent was called Shash. Many well-known scholars in the Islamic sciences, such as hadith, jurisprudence, and mysticism, emerged from Shash.

Zinā In The Criminal Legislation Act (1999-2000): An Evaluation Of The Implication For Muslim Women's Right In Nigeria, Paul Orerhime Akpomie

Theses and Dissertations

The research engages in an exploration of human rights in Islam. Human rights issues are then contrasted with international law positions. The data gotten is then used for investigating women’s human rights issues in Shariʾa penal tradition regarding zinā (adultery) in Nigeria. The re-emergence of Sharia penal codes adopted by 12 Northern states in Nigeria in 1999 as an operative Islamic law has sparked concerns about rulings amounting to stoning to death in several cases of zinā. These events raised concerns about Shariʾa penal traditions’ legality and relationship with other legal traditions operational in Nigeria, a secular political space ...

Look Who's Talking: Conscience, Complicity, And Compelled Speech, B. Jessie Hill 2022 Case Western Reserve University School of Law

Look Who's Talking: Conscience, Complicity, And Compelled Speech, B. Jessie Hill

Indiana Law Journal

Compelled speech claims, which arise under the Free Speech Clause, and complicity claims, which usually arise under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), are structurally similar. In each case, an individual claims that the government is forcing her to participate in a particular act that violates her religious or moral beliefs and imperatives, sending a false and undesired message to others and causing a form of spiritual or dignitary harm. It is therefore no surprise that compelled speech claims are often raised together with complicity claims in cases where religious individuals challenge the application of generally applicable laws to themselves ...
