Actually, you've gone a bit overboard here. The word used is "prohibt" not "abridged". For example, if I have a religion that condones human sacrifice, I cannot claim freedom of prosecution for murder because my religious rights were prohibited. The law takes precedence.
Religion is matter of "opinion" not "action" in the eyes of the law. Therefore you have the right to your opinion regarding religion but not necessarily any action you desire that stems from those opinions. I can believe, as a matter of religious opinion, I am entitled to multiple wives. But, I cannot engage in the action because it is contrary to U.S. Law (this was actually the SCOTUS case where the distinction was made).
