Here is an update to California’s Supreme Court decision about Catholic Charities being forced to provide contraceptive coverage in their employees health plans.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CNS) — The Diocese of Sacramento will appeal a California Supreme Court decision holding that Catholic Charities of Sacramento is not a religious institution and as such must provide coverage of contraceptives for its workers.
Sacramento Bishop William K. Weigand announced June 1 that he will take the case to the U.S. Supreme Court in an effort to overturn a March 1 decision by the state’s highest court, which requires Catholic Charities and other church entities to pay for contraceptives as part of employee health insurance.
The 6-1 ruling said Catholic Charities of Sacramento may not be exempted from a 1999 state law that requires all employers to include contraceptives when they provide insurance coverage for prescriptions.
Go, Bishop Weigand, go!!! I hope that this case gets the kind of verdict it deserves! Pray for the justices!
. . . . and if no court rules in their favor, they need to just close down.
*sigh*…these judges simply don’t understand religion…do they?
