In 2014, the Supreme Court interpreted the Religious Freedom Restoration Act as allowing to employers to interfere with the federal rights of their employees based on a trivial burden on their religious beliefs.  Not surprisingly, the decision is now being used by a federal judge to trump the Civil Rights Act. The opinion is a marriage of two bad Republican tastes: an implausibly expansive interpretation or RFRA combined with an artificially narrow interpretation to Title VII.
