This is exactly what the Founding Fathers meant when they wrote the Bill of Rights: an air conditioning and heating company should be exempt for religious reasons, at least when it comes to womens health:
WaPo – Hercules v. Sebelius is a case brought by Hercules Industries, a Colorado-based air-conditioning company. The four siblings who own the business say they oppose contraceptives — such medications are not included in their current health coverage plan — and “seek to run Hercules in a manner that reflects their sincerely-held religious beliefs.”
The health-care law’s required coverage of contraceptives without co-pay is slated to come into effect next week, on Aug. 1. Religious institutions that primarily serve individuals are exempt from the requirement. Those that are faith-driven but tend to have workers outside their faith must comply, but got a one year reprieve. Hercules, as an air-conditioning company, does not fall into either category.
This is great, because pretty much anything can be ginned up into a religious objection. For example I don’t particularly care for tongue piercing or Cornish game hens, and paying for accidents resulting from piercings or hunting could be expensive. I’m sure there’s a religion somewhere that has an edict or two that could be twisted into meaning flesh is sacred, in some way, that would get me and my insurance policy off the hook.
