California can define "religion"
This piece in the Christianity Today weblog tells of the Supreme Court's refusal to act in the case of Catholic Charities in California. Catholics have a strong conviction against birth control. But the law requires all employers to provide birth control for employees in their health plans. The Catholics protested that the law impinged on their freedom of religion. The California courts ruled that the organization didn't fit their definition of a "religious organization" so the law DID apply and was enforcable. Scary.
