This is the first post back from my break that i'll post a reply to.

Being raised both Irish and catholic , my first response was "Churches don't pay tax though..."
Looking into it a bit more, I came up with the same reason.

As for the people in the church, be they priest or simple follower, then yes, through taxes is acceptable. Just because someone doesn't want to take the option of contraceptives doesn't mean others do as well.
Taxes pay for everything, from Roads, Hospitals, Military spending (though in Ireland we don't have what you'd call a military), Education, ect.
I don't like the fact that my taxes pay for Bank debt in my country that I didn't cause, but it doesn't give me the right to demand my money back specifically for that. (i think i went off topic but still)
