We're not interfering with the practice of their religion, we're interfering with their employees' benefits packages.
Nor, I admit, do I much care that mainstream religions aren't allowed to discriminate if/when nobody else is. Saying that your discriminatory conduct is mandated by God isn't much of an argument in my eyes. Freedom of religion doesn't encompass freedom to discriminate in violation of the law.
