The question of whether institutions with religious ties should be required to offer insurance plans covering birth control and the so-called morning after pill, among other things, hits a number of political hot buttons. Liberal groups have pushed for an expansive contraception coverage requirement on grounds of gender equality in health care. Conservatives generally consider it a violation of the First Amendment and an infringement on religious liberty.

In a nut shell:
Nancy Pelosi agreed to add a provision (in the public option health care bill) that would prohibit federal funds from being used for the purchase of plans that cover abortion in a new health care exchange. Leaving out the amendment would force taxpayers (who are morally against abortions) to subsidize abortion.
Pelosi’s decision to give the anti-abortion lawmakers what they wanted in exchange for their accession to passing the bill.
So..., the question is, should people who are morally against abortions be forced to pay for them?
For example, the ACLU is the poster child of an excessively open mind. They once filed a law suit on behalf of NAMBLA. Now, if that isn't evidence that their brains fell out, I don't know what is ;)
Should religious groups stop using the word "marriage" and create, define and patent a new word?
The government is not going to stop using the word "marriage." They have appropriated it. If religious groups create, define and patent a new word, then
they can define it any way they want and no one else can use it and/or re-define it.
The alternative is to spend Millions in order to reclaim the word "marriage."
More and more products are now coming with license agreements.If these license agreements are so great,why not replace warning labels with license agreements?- Instead of this -Warning: Do not use this electric hair dryer in the shower.Warning: Do no stick Q-tip into ear.- have this -By purchasing this product you agree to not use it in the shower.By purchasing this product you agree to not stick it into ear.Once this is accomplished, the next step is to apply it to guns.By purchasing this product you agree to not be an ass-hole and murder people with it.Then, if they try to sue the gun company, the gun company could say,"Your honor, that gun was not manufactured for the purpose of murdering people.In fact, our license agreement specifically states that it will not be used for the purpose.We would like to sue the defendant for violating the license agreement."Murderers would not only face murder charges,they will also face license agreement violation charges.Faced with all this litigation, the number of murders committed in the U.S. will drop.
So..., to sum up. Women want to work for religious organizations and force them to provide health coverage for contraceptives. This means that the cost will be passed on to everyone else.

There is no argument that the Founding Fathers did not want the Government to force people to follow one specific denomination of Christianity. Did they want no influence of religion at all on the Government? A complete seperation of Church and State? Or, Did they just not want the Government police authority to inforce religious practices?
I am looking for documented proof of answer. Not just an opinion like "They were Christians, everybody knows that" or "They were all Deist".
