Forcing religion on us

This is an interesting comment (pay site):

Notre Dame’s president, the Rev. John Jenkins, said in a statement that the school decided to sue “after much deliberation, discussion and efforts to find a solution acceptable to the various parties.’’ The university said that the mandate violates religious freedom by requiring many religiously affiliated hospitals, schools, and charities to comply.

“We do not seek to impose our religious beliefs on others,’’ Jenkins said. “We simply ask that the government not impose its values on the university when those values conflict with our religious teachings.’

Given that they don’t want to impose their beliefs on others, I assume that these universities and churches will now pay property taxes. And the Catholic Church has pursued a strong campaign against abortion, gay marriage, and the use of contraception, so they are trying to impose their religious beliefs on the rest of us.
