What is terribly hypocritical about this are the anti-gay and anti-equality organizations who are upset over Catholic Charities closing their doors vs. complying with anti-discrimination laws by placing children with gay couples. These organizations also receive government dollars, but are having their religious freedom oppressed:

Catholic Charities was accepting state funds to provide adoption services and was thus bound by the state’s gay-inclusive anti-discrimination law not to reject qualified adoptive parents based on sexual orientation. Oh, and by the way, the non-discrimination law has been on the books since 1989—long before marriage equality was but a doodle on [civil rights advocate] Mary Bonauto’s legal pad [source]

I guess they view a monopoly on just what religious freedom means.
