How Officials Cheat — Part 2

Yesterday, in Part 1, I looked at the National Park Regulations, as compiled in their Superintendent’s Compendiums, for Wind Cave National Park, along with Mammoth Cave and Carlsbad Caverns. They all require shoes inside their caves, but with no good reason.

I’ve written before about how Judges and Administrators Cheat. Let’s do a bit on how officials cheat.

RFRA Revisited

I’ve written before about the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act and how it might apply to barefooters. Recently, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled on such a case and I think that ruling solidifies just how much religious barefooters are protected.
