    Cover up is sacrament.
    ONLY if it is found in Confession. Otherwise, they very much can turn others in so long as canon law is also followed.

That would be pushing their religion down the throats of ALL taxpayers, MOST of whom are opposed to the church's stance on birth control. If the Catholic Church wants to practice it's religion without government interference, then all they have to do is not accept the money. Nobody is putting a gun to their head, telling them that they have to take it.

    It's very easy. Don't be a whore and take the money.
    You clearly do NOT understand the Constitution.
