Sep. 07 (CWNews.com) – The office of Catholic Charities in Albany, New York, is pursuing a lawsuit challenging regulations that require insurance coverage for contraception.
"We’re being forced to pay for something that represents what we teach against and what we think is sinful," said Michael Costello, a lawyer for Catholic Charities.
To date, the suit has been unsuccessful. Two New York courts have ruled that Catholic Charities does not qualify for an exemption from the law because it is not a religious employer. The courts have noted that Catholic Charities hires and serves people of all faiths.
So a institution can only be considered religious if it only serves people of one faith? What a wacky understanding of charity. Funny how Catholic Charities can get attacked for not doing adoptions for same sex couples because that is restrictive attacked for hiring and serving people of multiple faiths at the same time.
You can easily imagine what would happened if they fired all of their non-Catholic employees, that the same court would be involved once again.
