16. They want to use tax dollars to discriminate

This is their main argument:

"They also assert that the government has violated the religious freedom of Catholics by cutting off contracts to Catholic agencies."

While the First Amendment is clear on the whole freedom of religion concept, nowhere in the US Constitution does it say that any religious group is entitled to contracts by the federal government.

The bishops want special treatment, and feel that they should not have to follow secular law...but that's the same thought they have when it comes to their cadre of pedophiles.

If other religions have to meet legal standards to get federal contracts, then so should the Catholic church.
