If a religious institution wants to do anything in the world outside religion then they should play by those rules. So then if you had a Catholic hospital they should act like a hospital since that’s the role they've chosen to adopt. If you’re not going to meet your obligations, don’t take on the responsibility.

A church or whatever that is acting strictly as a church obviously shouldn't even need to worry about this kind of thing since the only people they should be paying should be priests or whoever and they'll already agree with whatever the church stands for.

"Religious institution" should be very, very narrowly defined. If not, there's too much room for people with strong religious beliefs to abuse their positions of authority in non-religious areas.
