"Property-tax battles are rarely sexy. But a case now in front of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, about whether the 21 religious brothers and sisters who run the Shrine of Our Lady of LaSalette in Attleboro should have to pay taxes, could have huge repercussions. The Court's decision will be an important part of the ongoing debate in America about who defines religious practice -- believers or bureaucrats -- and whether religion itself should be afforded a special place under the law."
