The GOP's War On Reason

Steven Mazie argues that contraceptive services for employees of Roman Catholic universities, hospitals, and charities is 100% a public health and 0% a religious liberty issue:

It is time to put an end to the hyperbolic charges that Obama is waging a war on religion. John Boehner’s claim on the floor of the House of Representatives on Tuesday that the mandate represents “an unambiguous attack on religious freedom in our country” is unambiguously baseless. The Health and Human Services guidelines serve important public health goals and threaten no defensible concept of religious liberty.
