    Why should anyone receive a religious exemption? If we're 100% honest about religions, we will acknowledge that they are really nothing more than glorified superstitions: Belief in an unseen entity that has supernatural powers; their benevolence can be influenced by certain rituals, traditions and talismans. They are no different than African witch doctors and the like.

    The law should only concern itself with logic and empirical facts. Having said that, I agree with the ruling based on the lack of proof that the dreadlocks pose a safety risk.
