Rethinking Religious Minorities’ Political Power
Hillel Y. Levin
This Article challenges the assumption that small religious groups enjoy little political power. Based on this assumption, the dominant view is that courts are indispensable for protecting religious minority groups from oppression by the majority. But this assumption fails to account for the many and varied ways in which the majoritarian branches have chosen to protect and accommodate even unpopular religious minority groups, as well as the courts’ failures to do so.
