New York Opinion shows bias against people of faith alive and well

This is a very disturbing opinion out of the Court of Appeals of New York, the state's highest court. I read the opinion and it is amazing how totally secular and anti-religious the courts have become. I always knew it was bad but this opinion confirms the fall.

Aside from the absurdity of the New York State law compelling businesses to provide ancillary products in connection with insurance, the notion that religious organizations are now compelled to place their employees in the near occasion of sin is revolting. Of course the slippery slope is that if the state can compel this under statute, what about compelling insurance coverage for elective abortions?

This case will be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
