On 2012-04-12 the Catholic church complained the Obama administration was restricting their religious freedom. The two examples they gave:

Hospital employees are covered for birth control. Of course no one is required to use birth control or make claims on the insurance. They want Catholics blocked from being covered.

They want to persecute gays, especially deny marriage equality. Their bible calls for their execution. Obama won’t do this for them.

They are not upset about their own freedom; they are just not as free as before to restrict other people’s freedom.

Do you think neo-Nazi organisations with a clause is their constitution calling for the assassination of all gay people should get government grants? If not, how you do justify putting up with Christian churches getting such grants? They all have that clause in their constitution -- the Old Testament.
