A number of churches have asked for and received a small exemption in the Affordable Care Act that would prevent them from having to "pay for" health insurance that included coverage for contraception, citing a religious problem with "providing" such coverage. The exemption will essentially create a small side insurance plan, that will cover contraception, anyway, and relieve such churches from feeling as if they're doing something that goes against their dogma.
Forget the act that these churches are employers in this situation, and they aren't actually paying for anything; it's part of the employee's compensation package. It's still another case of religion pushing its way into the political arena and using political power to get its way. If the people who are actually buying these insurance policies think contraception is wrong, they have the option of not using that service; it shouldn't be up to an employer to tell them what they can and cannot use, based on that employer's personal religious beliefs. If I work for a Jehovah's Witness, does he get to nix blood transfusions? In other words, how far do we go with this?
