    though. The diary and many comments are wrong in suggesting that's their objection.

    It has nothing to do with the nuns, as nuns, paying for contraceptive services that they won't use. It's about the Little Sisters of the Poor order as the employer of laywomen and laymen throughout its facilities.

    It has nothing to do with paying for something their employees won't use, either. It's exactly the opposite: "If we pay for it (or even arrange for it), our employees will use it, and we will be complicit in their moral evil."  

    We could try meeting their actual arguments rather than making up easier ones to refute. But since even this trivial stay decision has been completely misrepresented in the bulk of diaries and comments, it's hard to get motivated to discuss the merits and possible outcome of the underlying cases.
