Claiming that government is intruding on their religious beliefs, the Little sisters of the Poor wants to exempt themselves from providing contraception services for their employees. The general basis for this arguement is that government cannot intrude on a group's religious beliefs. The Supreme Court will decide the case soon. My point is that the Little Sisters certainly do not mind when the government makes a rule that says they, as a religious organization, do not have to pay taxes. But this other rule, about contraception, is one they dislike, so they protest against such a govenment "intrusion." We are so special, they say, that we should be able to subvert the entire point of the Affordable Care Act, which guarantees a minimal level of coverage with any health insurance plan.
Why stop with contraception, which seems to oppose the "will of God" with regard to certain biological functions? Any disease can be considered an act of God, so attempting to treat such things is obviously counter to the will of the deity and anything that pays for medical treatment should be excluded for the Little Sisters organization.
