I'm not sure I follow this. The rule in Smith is that religious
believers are treated equally when states insist that abide by general
laws. And those of us who question whether Smith was correctly decided
(I'm genuinely unsure) think the issue is whether religious believers
should be given an exemption.

So, since the military CAN'T legally give a nondiscrimination pledge,
little cute for the law schools to say, "we are willing to treat the
equally once they give us this pledge." To tie this to my previous
like saying "we'll hire Seventh Day Adventists, so long as they'll work
Saturday, like everyone else." Or to tell a reservist, "we'll hold your
for you while your sent to Iraq, so long as you're back within a week,
we only give week-long vacations."
