I think you're looking too far into this.

They screwed up. And when faced with a lawsuit they legally covered their behinds.

It's wrong and they're hypocrites, but that's... about all I gather from this.

Their purpose is to follow Catholic directives, yes. But I don't think they are an extension of the Church organization. You could also imply that because there are people who are Catholic (and as such should be "following Catholic directives") who use birth control, then the Church endorses birth control. That wouldn't be so.
