"The Rule of Law should be blind to religion,"

Arguably it should, but it is not, and it never has been. God is invoked on the coat of arms prominently displayed in every court room in the jurisdiction. Holy books are also present in every court room. I understand that the majority of judges still prefer to swear rather than affirm their allegiance, and in doing so God enters the proceedings. Laws have been tailored to facilitate faiths and the obligations of faith, as for example the Jewish Naturalisation Act of 1753, and more recent provision allowing Sikh men to carry the five Ks.

The rule of law should never be blind to people and how people live.
