Government, especially elected politicians love to include religion in their campaigns because more people are religious so religion gets votes. But governmental preference for religion, is forbidden by the First Amendment. Wallace v. Jaffree, 472 U.S. 38, 52-55 (1985).

The basis for the Hobby Lobby decision was the Religious Freedom Restoration Act which violates Article V of the Federal Constitution and is therefore unconstitutional.

RFRA isn’t justified by any of Congress’s powers, and RFRA violates the establishment of religion clause.

Exemptions because of religion also violate the 14th Amendment where laws are supposed to be applied equally. Religious exemptions cannot be applied as we see in Hobby Lobby because only religious people who oppose abortion may avoid them.
