On That Understanding

Unlike the exemption this Court approved in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., accommodating petitioner's religious belief in this case would not detrimentally affect others who do not share petitioner's belief.  On that understanding, I join the Court's opinion.

-- Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, concurring with the Court's unanimous decision in Holt v. Hobbs, establishing that a Muslim inmate may grow a half-inch beard "in accordance with his religious beliefs", 20 January 2015
