A few weeks ago, Obama's Department of Health and Human Services mandated that all employers–even religious hospitals and schools--had to include health coverage for birth control, sterilization, and 'morning-after' pills in the health insurance plans they give their employees. [...]
The big lie behind all this is that somehow allowing some employers not to pay for this kind of coverage amounts to a "contraception ban."
And we recognize this principle everywhere else. My employer, Henry Blodget, doesn't pay me in prayer books or altars. But that is not an infringement on my free exercise of religion. He isn't banning my faith.
