It's a neutral law of general application, enacted for perfectly good secular reasons. And if it matters, the law doesn't burden the operation of the Church itself. If the Church wants to conduct non-core enterprises, why shouldn't they be expected to comply with the same neutral, etc., laws as every other employer? That's not religious persecution.

This issue seems fairly straightforward to me. There's no breach of the principle of freedom of religion here.
