for a great guest stint! I've learned a great deal about RLUIPA and plan on incorporating it into my land-use unit in the Spring. Although I'm sympathetic about some of the problems that religious institutions have in dealing with local land-use ordinances, I have to say I have some doubts about the statute, especially its strict scrutiny standard. There is no question, though, that this is an important statute, and it will be interesting to see how RLUIPA develops in the courts over the next few years.
