Question to be answered: Imagine that the New York State legislature gets an idea to ban indoor groups of over 100 people to prevent the spread of COVID-19. While collecting statistics of the types of indoor gatherings over the past year, the legislature finds that all of the occurrences of over 100 people (which were completely legal at the time) were a result of religious ceremonies. All other indoor gatherings in the state had 50 people at most. Upon learning this information, the legislature changes the restriction to “over 50 people.” If the law is passed, do you think it would violate the “Free Exercise” clause of the First Amendment?
