A double standard with religious freedom

Here in Illinois it is becoming illegal for Catholics to practice their faith when it comes to foster care and contraception, and it soon may be so across the country when it comes to surgical sterilization and contraceptive devices and pills.

But in Ohio Muslims are allowed the freedom to practice their religion when it comes to pork.

Why the double standard?  It's a curious thing: to meet the religious practices of one Muslim, no prisoners can eat pork.  But when it comes to Catholics meeting their religious practices, they only ones having things taken away are the Catholics.
