What is a “personal religous belief.” Is there any other kind? Or are all religious beliefs personal? Or is this in contrast to public religious beliefs? Is a personal religious belief a conviction about the number of sacraments, or disagreement with supralapsarianism? And then a public religious belief could be something like belief in the dignity of every human individual, created in the image of God. Hey? Like when the Founders said that we were endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights — or is that a personal religious belief?

And individual liberty? Liberty to do what? By what standard?
