" and employers forced to provide it -- if there are legitimate moral and religious objections to some provisions."

Hmm,......so what's next?  Can Jewish employers not pay employees because the wages may be used to buy pork?

So if Catholic hospital decide antiseptics are against their "religion" can they ban the use of them in their hospitals?

If the employee is paying half or all of the cost of the insurance policy why does the employer get to control the "choice" of policy?

Funny how the big stalwart supporters of "choice" suddenly want employers to have the power to limit employees healthcare "choices"

Since weed is a staple of the Rastafarian religion, does the state have a right to make it illegal, could they be exempted by "religious objections"

Jefferson had it right, keep religion out of government.

My reading of SCOTUS' refusal to consider most of the ACA challenges on religious grounds (overviewed in the last linked article) is that the court agrees with your opinion implied in your questions (as I also do), Nigel.

The cases they will consider - can an employer "refuse on religious grounds to provide insurance for certain birth control and other reproductive health services, without a co-pay" - does deserve constitutional analysis, as the principle extends far beyond health care legislation.
