[154 pages.] "Compelling a person to do an act his religion forbids, or punishing him for an act his religion requires, are paradigmatic religious-liberty injuries ... A corporation is just a special form of organizational association. No one doubts that organizational associations can engage in religious practice. The government accepts that some corporations -- religious nonprofits -- have religious-exercise rights under both RFRA and the Free-Exercise Clause. As evidence of this, the contraception mandate exempts a class of religious organizations -- i.e., churches and their integrated auxiliaries ... whether or not they conduct their activities in the corporate form.... [We] take it as both conceded and noncontroversial that the use of the corporate form and the associated legal attributes of that status -- think separate legal personhood, limitations on owners' liability, special tax treatment -- do not disable an organization from engaging in the exercise of religion within the meaning of RFRA (or the Free Exercise Clause, for that matter).... If Congress intended a nonprofit limitation in RFRA, surely there would be some hint of it in the statutory text." [Korte et al. v. Sebelius, No.12-3841, consolidated with Grote v. Sebelius, No. 13-1077 (7th Cir. Nov. 8, 2013)]
