"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," the Constitution states, but apparently Obamacare mandates access to birth control and abortion.
The Catholic church is highly vocal in its objections to this, citing the First Amendment. That church was equally vocal in its objections to gay marriage. Since no one is required to practice birth control and marriage is a secular issue, the basis of its arguments is religious and not relevant to the running of the government. The church is guaranteed freedom to admonish its adherents not to partake, but it can't write law.
