Romney ad accuses Obama of ‘war on religion’

Mitt Romney’s campaign accused President Obama of waging a “war on religion” in a new ad Thursday, saying the president’s health care plan forces religious institutions to “go against their faith.”

The charge is an apparent reference to a requirement, announced in January by the Department of Health and Human Services, that employers provide free contraception through their health insurance plans. Churches were exempted, but colleges, charities, and hospitals affiliated with religious groups were not.
