    obtuseness on this, with your corresponding "I'm just trying to understand" to be a bit trollish.  

    I have little doubt your supposed failure to understand the relevance of the nonexistence of situations in which an employer is permitted to impose their religious belief on their employees, and your then oh so subtle suggestion that an inability to provide such an example is actually evidence that an employer really does have the right to impose his or her religious belief about contraception on their employee is intentional and fatuous.

      nonexistence of situations in which an employer is permitted to impose their religious belief on their employees,
      Hosanna-Tabor is a situation where an employer was allowed to impose religious beliefs on a particular employee, even as to the employee's out of work conduct, in a way that even trumped federal law.

      I just want an example of what you're referring to when you speak of employers imposing their religion on their employees. Just one specific, real world example. You told me that there were no examples because, to use your words, it's "NOT PERMITTED". But that's akin to saying there's no real world examples of, say murder, because it's not permitted. Clearly that's silly...both you and I know murder occurs everyday despite the illegality of it. So are employers "imposing their religious beliefs on their employees" or not? If so, how? And if they are, how are the courts dealing with these issues?

      Again, are employers doing this or not? Give me an example...then I can tell you whether I think, based on my understanding of the law, it's Constitutionally permissible or not.

      And if they're NOT doing it, what's the problem?

      Dammit Jim, I'm a lawyer, not a grammarian. So sue me.
