By allowing an employer to refuse to provide insurance for birth control based upon religious beliefs there is not separation of church and state, it is favoring a particular religion.

Just saying...

BTW, I happen to be catholic. I just do not believe that the church has that right.

No by forcing them to provide it there is not separation between the church and the state. There is no requirement that there be a separation between two private parties.
There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him

Yes I do agree with that and that is why it should not have been in the law to begin with as it favors one religion over others against those who do not want it. The only option is to give it as an option for all employers and not have it hinge on some religious exemption that is the only work around that I see otherwise like in the lawsuit I posted you have the government interfering with peoples free exercise of religion.
