Doesn't look like much of a compromise to me. Obama still says the insurance companies still have to provide it. That means the premiums paid by these religious organizations are still paying for something they object to since the insurance company isn't going to provide the coverage for free.

Kind of depends on what the Supreme Court has to say.

The Obama administration is offering a bogus compromise on its ObamaCare contraception mandate as it tries to get out from underneath a mountain of lawsuits citing religious freedom.

The so-called compromise announced by Health and Human Services Friday shows that "religious" employers such as hospitals and charities can get out of the mandate while religious businesses such as Hobby Lobby are still stuck with providing for coverage and free birth control for employees.
