corporations have had the same rights as citizens since 1864,so no the RFRA was passed long after corporations achieved person hood. citizens united was the final nail in the coffin for that and they have defended every challenge of corporate person hood since 1864.don't have to like it but the supreme's have ruled that way over over 100 years. so if your having a problem with "the worst scotus in history" take it up with our great great geat grandfathers for electing the people who appointed them.

Corporate personhood is an American legal concept that a corporation may be recognized as an individual in the eyes of the law. This doctrine forms the basis for legal recognition that corporations, as groups of people, may hold and exercise certain rights under the common law and the U.S. Constitution. For example, corporations may contract with other parties and sue or be sued in court in the same way as natural persons or unincorporated associations of persons. The doctrine does not hold that corporations are flesh and blood "people" apart from their shareholders, executives, and managers, nor does it grant to corporations all of the rights of citizens. Since at least Trustees of Dartmouth College v. Woodward – 17 U.S. 518 (1819), the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized corporations as having the same rights as natural persons to contract and to enforce contracts. In Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad – 118 U.S. 394 (1886), the court reporter, Bancroft Davis,[1] noted in the headnote to the opinion that the Chief Justice Morrison Waite began oral argument by stating, "The court does not wish to hear argument on the question whether the provision in the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which forbids a State to deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws, applies to these corporations. We are all of the opinion that it does."[2] While the headnote is not part of the Court's opinion and thus not precedent, two years later, in Pembina Consolidated Silver Mining Co. v. Pennsylvania – 125 U.S. 181 (1888), the Court clearly affirmed the doctrine, holding, "Under the designation of 'person' there is no doubt that a private corporation is included [in the Fourteenth Amendment]. Such corporations are merely associations of individuals united for a special purpose and permitted to do business under a particular name and have a succession of members without dissolution."[3] This doctrine has been reaffirmed by the Court many times since.

i stand corrected it has been established since 1818 so almost 200 years of it being the law of the land,i mean that is what every one said about the ACA right? its the law so deal with it?

As far as can be understood, here is our governments take on freedom of religion "If you can't convert it, kill it" in other words, right out of the Popes mouth. If someone tells you they are a "christian" it means "I'm willing to slit your throat from ear to ear and throw your family into a woodchipper. I'm just waiting for the holy MEN to say so". and god has already told them, if the 'unclean' give you a hard time? pull them apart with some lawn tractors, that'll get they're attention!
