So freedom of religion does not apply to the Catholic church according to your rules of order?

WRONG ! Many Catholics do indeed want the U.S. government to make all contraceptives illegal . What right do they have to demand this ?

As a non-Catholic, I agree with you. As a believing Christian, no Christian organization or Christian employer should be forced to pay for contraceptives.

Catholics are not demanding that non-catholics be denied the right to use contraceptives.

You have no right to demand that Catholics pay for your sex life. By it yourself.

This has absolutely nothing to do with freedom of religion . If the Vatican tells Catholics that they may not use constraqceptives, that's one thing. But Catholics have absolutely NO RIGHT to demand that non-catholics in America be denied the right to use them .
They want to interfere with the rights of others who do not share their religious beliefs .
Ever heard of separation of church and state. America is NOT a theocracy - YET !

The pope has renounced the papal throne. Long live the progressive pope! Such are the rallying cries from establishment voices wanting to see the Catholic Church loosen up now that Pope Benedict XVI has decided to step down. But maybe people should listen to the Church's actual views.

Mary Hasson from the Ethics and Public Policy Center has been doing some unique work looking into what Catholic women know and want from their Church. It's scandalous and yet not entirely surprising that she found only 13 percent of Catholic women who occasionally attend Mass accept Church teaching on contraception.

It's not a shock...
