    Is there any reason that you think that SCOTUS would stand against the 1st amendment in concerns of religious freedoms?

    Here is a USA today article:


    According to the Public Religion Research Institute poll released today,...



    Key breakdowns

    58% of all Catholics agree employers should be required to provide their employees with health care plans that cover contraception. That slides down to 52% for Catholic voters, 50% for white Catholics.
    61% of religiously unaffiliated Americans say employer plans should cover contraception.
    50%of white mainline Protestants want the coverage. However, for evangelical Protestants, that drops to 38%.
    And perhaps of greater note among election-watchers:

    Women are significantly more likely than men to agree that employers should be required to provide health care plans that cover contraception (62% vs. 47% respectively).


    A second poll, also released today from Public Policy Polling, has similar findings. This poll, conducted at the request of Planned Parenthood, finds

    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    I'm not sure about the details of the very last ruling you are trying to highlight, but through the past many years, they have been saying that. Is it possible that some judge foud something different? Of course.

    Here is an article with a chart of the poll breakdown.

    PRRI broke down the question for different types of employers, a methodology that gets to the heart of the various ways the opponents of birth control coverage have framed their objections. Support rises the more attenuated the relationship is with a church or house of worship: churches and other houses of worship (42%) ; religiously affiliated social service agencies (52%); privately owned small businesses (53%); religiously affiliated colleges (54%); religiously affiliated hospitals (57%); and publicly held corporations (62%).

    According to PRRI's data, "Catholics overall are generally more supportive than the general public of the contraception coverage requirements." The flock isn't following the Bishops, who yesterday pledged to continue their opposition to the policy and to what they claim are other threats to the religious liberty. The Bishops, though, have non-Catholic supporters: "White evangelical Protestants are the only religious group that opposes requiring any type of employer to provide their employees with no cost contraception coverage:"

    You can cite PRRI all you want...Just like a computer 'junk in, junk out'...They are a biased source. Notice the questions of their samplings are NOT provided....Ever ask yourself why?

    House Republicans, have slowed their efforts to overturn a federal rule requiring employers, including religious institutions, to provide female employees with free health insurance coverage for contraceptives.
    WASHINGTON — House Republicans, unsure how to proceed, have slowed their efforts to overturn a federal rule requiring employers, including religious institutions, to provide female employees with free health insurance coverage for contraceptives.

    While most House Republicans still support legislation to broaden the exemption for religious employers, House Republican leaders are carefully reviewing their options on the issue, which Democrats used to political advantage in the Senate.

    The goal of House Republicans has not changed, they said, but they worry about further alienating women in this year’s elections.

    The right wing badly overplayed their card on this issue. And Limbaugh was the center of their disaster.

    Well, you're reading of the first amendment and where it applies may be wrong. But I read their last ruling, and they seemed to limit the priviledge to actual clergy, in actual churches, and not to off shoot buisnessess and other employees. You might read it.

    Well, it seems we both bring different things we've read. I'd have to know specifically what you've read to check it out. But, the last rulling, as I said, I think says something different than you report.
