California SC: Catholic Group Must Pay for Birth Control

The California Supreme Court ruled Monday that Catholic Charities must provide its employees in California with medical coverage for birth control, in spite of its religious objections to contraception.

Ouch. Are we on our way to France's scarf, cross, and yarmulke ban? On the other hand, with an increasing number of social and welfare services being provided by religious institutions, how do we keep them from not excluding other denominations?
