Religion and Liberty

Agoraphilia has a good post regarding a recent decision by the California Supreme Court that forces the Church to provide birth control in its employees health care plans despite the Church's position against contraception. In fact his post is so good I decided to add the blog to my blogroll.

My take on the issue is that it's truly disheartening to see this in a country that was founded on the principle of religious liberty and it's especially disheartening to see it here in my home state of California. I think the best way to handle this issue, much like the handling of most libertarian issues, is to seperate church and healthcare from state, then we certainly wouldn't have this complicated mess on our hands.
