Abstract:

This film takes a candid look at the effectiveness of Congress's 2000 Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA). More than 10 years later, has the law achieved what lawmakers intended? What are the social and environmental consequences of a statute which accuses communities of religious discrimination before it can be disproved, ignores established zoning, and, some say, undermines every planning and environmental law on the books? When will Congress deliver its promise to review the impact of the statute? In the absence of a Congressional review, America's Holy War investigates these questions. Under the microscope, one community with a growing cluster of RLUIPA lawsuits - Ramapo, New York - provides insight into RLUIPA's larger-scale impacts. Filmed between 2007 and 2011, the documentary examines past and ongoing RLUIPA cases and shares perspectives from a cross-section of residents, politicians, clergy, and national law experts to get to the bottom of this statute's unexplored effects.
