  •  Sometimes (0+ / 0-)

    Courts do look into whether or not someone is lying, either about beliefs, motives, or intent.  Your stated belief that an employee was incompetent will not be proof positive against a claim of racial discrimination.  It's a credibility call.

    •  The Court evaluating the evidence (0+ / 0-)

       to determine whether your belief an employee was incompetent is sincere or just cover for bigotry is in no way comparable to a Court trying to determine if you really believe God said what you claim to believe he said.

      There are both establishment and freedom of religion clauses.  That means the State has absolutely no business ever trying to determine who is or is not sincere about their professed religious beliefs.
