The Conscience Cliff – By Kathryn Jean Lopez – The Corner – National Review Online.

I am not normally a big religious advocate. Churches are just another form of political and social conventionality, and I find my relationship with God too personal and iconoclastic to share with a group of people demanding that you think the same way they do.

People who do have a particular strongly held belief, i.e. abortion or birth control, should not be forced to pay their own money to support activities that should not be under government control in the first place.
