Your right to exercise your religion doesn't extend to other people.
If you want to believe, go for it, but that doesn't give you the right to tell anyone else what they can or can't do with their body.
Or, to put it a different way: what would you be saying if the employer was a Jehovah's Witness and refused to give employees coverage for blood transfusions?

Forcing a corporation to do something is a little different than forcing a human to do something. I think the Christian still has the right to act in accordance with his faith despite these changes. A corporation, we know, isn't human and therefore is incapable of having a religious belief.

ATS, who is with me?
I'm going to start a company that prints toilet paper rolls.
I'll print one set of rolls with the first ten amendments. I'll print the second set of rolls with the Ten Commandments.
Then we can all get rich quick before jumping like lemmings off the fiscal cliff!
(I'm kidding. I don't endorse any kind of disrespectful or psychopathic behavior at all.)
If the owners want nothing but employees that believe the same exact things they do where the employees by faith, and advanced signed legal contract, waive any and all human rights they might think they have in favor of the whims and interpretations of their new religious leader and employer, then, the owners should move their business to some island nation they own where they can get away with violating human rights in favor of what whims they have on the interpretations of some mythology derived from filthy incestuous slave owning desert nomads.
The "Obamacare" law requires business and organizations, except for religious entities such as churches, to provide access to contraception coverage. The plaintiffs claim they do not object to providing insurance coverage for every contraceptive, but do object to the so-called "morning-after pill," which they consider an abortifacient.
