FLDS Member Insists Religious Beliefs are ‘Sincere’ in Food Stamp Fraud Case
September 20th 2016
SALT LAKE CITY — A member of the Fundamentalist LDS Church accused of food stamp fraud is insisting he has “sincere religious beliefs” protected under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
“He has shown that this sincerely-held religious belief is being substantially burdened by Government action. With that, it now becomes the Government’s burden to show that the Government action serves a compelling interest and that there are no less restrictive means that would achieve that interest,” Bradshaw wrote.
