19. Agreed. This is libertarianism, private institutions discriminating at will. Property over people.

Churches don't pay taxes but their employees do and churches take public tax money but are allowed to do what others taking tax money are not allowed to do. The fact that some portion of her salary came from tax subsidies should be taken into account in her treatment.

But the churches are shielded from accounting for anything, so who can tell if the tax payers paid her or are now paying for her to be discriminated against in this case?

People who attend the church and school and believe the church should be allowed such power in private matters with public money are abetting the problem. But in their defense, they are afraid to complain as there are many punishments that will be meted out, from social isolation to eternal damnation.

The morality of not protecting that unborn child whose mother has lost employment and health care is again striking in this affair. Some of the ACA was resisted for providing birth control. I can't believe how backwards this country is becoming, right before our eyes.
