The Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) protects religious freedom. For example, you can be a Seventh-day Adventist and choose not to work on Saturdays. If your religion involves smoking peyote, you are allowed to do so because laws of general applicability do not apply. You can also perform religious rituals that involve killing chickens or display the Ten Commandments. However, practices like polygamy or bigamy or incest or sodomy or human sacrifice are not protected under RFRA, as they are considered to go too far.
