      I can't see them winning that case, religious exemptions can't get you
      out of violating secular laws (otherwise people would be starting
      religions that require their adherents to rob banks).

      I'd be more inclined to bring up faith healing and denial of real
      medicine to kids, that's probably the worst of all religious
      exemptions still existing in developed countries (and the polygamists
      aren't likely to win).
