Does the Supreme Court Listen to Theologians?

Did Catholic theologians influence the Zubik order? Lyle Denniston, long-time reporter and commentator on the Supreme Court, offers this analysis of the problem of complicity in sin.  Is the fire wall proposed between religious conscience and compelling government interest in health care “thick enough to meet the religious protest, and is the government going to be content with a new method of access that may require women to consult two doctors or have two insurance cards — separating their coverage for other health needs from their coverage for birth control?”  For another view, see Douglas Laycock, frequent defender of religious liberty (Hosanna-Tabor), who sides with the government this time — Explained: Religion, the Birth-Control Controversy and the Supreme Court.
