Allowing a religious group to break the U.S law (EEOC) will only lead to more law breaking due to religion. A religion can’t do what ever it pleases, it must stay in the limits and morale structure of the country it inhabits. If you allow them to discriminate against the disable then that can easily translate to being able to discriminate against race or sexuality. A quote from the case of “Employment Division v. Smith, 494 U.S. 872 (1990)” says “the First Amendment does not allow a person to disobey the law simply because they have a religious objection.” Due to this already stated clearification by the court, there is no way to consider this case constitutional! This is in no way meant to offend anyone, it is only to keep everything in check and make sure that everyone has a fair chance at having a good future. Placing this as unconstitutional will prevent any other case from trying to put their religion before the law. American laws are laws for a reason, meaning that they are not meant to hinder anyone so accepting them should not be something taken to offense.
