Here's a link to a report on the case I mentioned.<quoted text>
Hmmm....no specifics. Hard to discuss that way, don't you think? Are we talking about a business that happened to be run by a Lutheran, a non-profit organization run by the Lutheran Church, just the church itself?
A business is not a church.
Still, you're deflecting.
Your argument that the validity of the RCC's teaching on contraceptives would be determined in court was completely wrong.
Lutheran school teacher brought suit against her employer. SCOTUS ruled 9-0 that federal discrimination laws do not protect church employees who perform religious duties. The school maintained that her job as teacher was a ministerial activity.
"The justices ruled unanimously that the First Amendment’s guarantee of the free exercise of religion means that even neutral laws intent on banning workplace discrimination may not be applied to a religious institution choosing “those who will guide it on its way.”".
Catholic schools/hospitals are NFP's. I didn't say SCOTUS would rule on the inherent validity of RCC teaching (they can't and wouldn't)-it will rule on whether they can conduct these activities, as active ministry, in accord with their teaching without interference from the Federal government.
