Doug is right--land use planners also target the
ordinary activities of mainstream religious ministries
that are merely trying to worship or do good works.
But one difference is that zoning laws don't
stigmatize ministries as outlaws whose activities and
programs are contrary to the law and deserving of
condemnation and punishment. Zoning laws just say "not
in this neighborhood."
Nevertheless, thank God for RLUIPA.
