I suppose I have no problem with the California Supreme Court's recent decision to uphold the right of Catholic Healthcare West to fire someone because he is an outward adherent to Protestantism (CHW actually claims the employee was fired because of poor work performance). The problem I have is with CHW claiming it is a religious institution, when for all intents and purposes, it really isn't. The courts, of course, cannot constitutionally get into determining whether an organization connected with the Catholic Church is adhering to the Church's core prinicples.
