`A way of life that is odd or even erratic but interferes with no rights or interests of others is not to be condemned because it is different.' - former US Chief Justice Warren Burger in Wisconsin v. Yoder (1972) `Free exercise carries a lot of constitutional weight. There must be real reasons to limit it.' - Brookings Institution scholar James Reichley

`Free exercise of religion is intimately connected with all rights of conscience.' - Lutheran pastor Richard John Neuhaus
