Probably not in this case. The 1972 amendments to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act give us a rather unhelpful definition of "religion": "[t]he term “religion” includes all aspects of religious observance and practice, as well as belief . . ." Statutes are assumed to be internally consistent, so courts have probably looked to that definition to be applied in Title II, which is silent on the definition of "religion." I would say that where observance, practice, and belief are absent, there is no religion.

Lexis search underway.
