"Freedom of religion" may be an incoherent concept, given that there is no universally accepted definition of religion. The definer decides. The government must have some usable concept of what religion is in order not to trespass on the territory of religion.

It amazes me that otherwise intelligent people–those who would clearly see the injustice of the government requiring Al-Qaeda members held at Guantanamo Bay to serve pork to non-observant Muslims–cannot see the injustice of the government requiring a Church that believes it is wrong for itself to serve birth control to anyone forcing that same Church to serve birth control to everyone.
