Arguing forcefully against such a view, constitutional expert Marci A Hamilton, who has worked on recent clergy abuse and land use cases, first sets out why the law must govern religious entities, then discusses 'the history and doctrine behind the rule that subjects religious entities to duly enacted laws'.
