I think the policy debate on this case illustrates why the First Amendment and the courts have no business determining accommodation.  The ease w which those outside of government can judge that govt policy is necessarily wanting because it may burden religious practice is impressive. 
But the more interesting question is why the courts are better at drawing these lines than the political process.
