No Right to Kosher or Halal Meats

We know enough about the current occupant of the White House and his aversion to Christian principles when it comes to unborn human life. That is all fine and good, then his Obamacare law moves on about other First Amendment issues.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;

Not satisfies with the attack on Christian principles, why not go after the Jews and Muslim?

One mght think something simple as Kosher or Halal meats would escape the attention of the ever expanding/intrusive government would be spared. 

Short of attacking the concept of God himself just attack the practices of the religious to make a point.

DOJ: Free Exercise Clause Does Not Protect Kosher Meat Companies

U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli told the Supreme Court on Tuesday that the First
Amendment right to the free exercise of religion and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (C)—which Congress enacted to guide the Executive Branch and courts in defending that right—would not directly protect kosher or halal meat-processing corporations from a hypothetical federal rule that by generally banning certain meat-processing practices effectively banned kosher and halal meat processing by incorporated businesses.

Verrilli told the court that the customers of a kosher or halal meat-processing company--not the company itself--would have cause to sue in such a situation.
But he did not directly say whether the Obama Administration believed that the customers of a kosher meat-processing corporation should prevail in such a case.
