Wee bit of a double standard at the Grey Lady?

If you'd like to read an actual "open letter," try United for Religious Freedom from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops:

...we wish to clarify what this debate is—and is not—about. This is not about access to contraception, which is ubiquitous and inexpensive, even when it is not provided by the Church’s hand and with the Church’s funds. This is not about the religious freedom of Catholics only, but also of those who recognize that their cherished beliefs may be next on the block. This is not about the Bishops’ somehow “banning contraception,” when the U.S. Supreme Court took that issue off the table two generations ago. Indeed, this is not about the Church wanting to force anybody to do anything; it is instead about the federal government forcing the Church—consisting of its faithful and all but a few of its institutions—to act against Church teachings...
 

...So what is it about?

An unwarranted government definition of religion...

A mandate to act against our teachings...

A violation of personal civil rights...
