On religious freedom and religious privilege

I have something to say about this over here - at Talking Philosophy - relating it to the current controversy about mandatory provision of contraception as an item in US employer-provided health insurance schemes.

It's a nice up-to-date example of the sort of problem (if we're going to see it as one) discussed in Chapter Six of Freedom of Religion and the Secular State.
