Obama on Religious Hiring practices

Today at a town hall meeting at the Uni. of Maryland Obama dogged a question about tax-payer funding of religious organizations. The question was 'What would you say to a woman who has been denied employment because of her religion or lack of religious beliefs by a taxpayer-funded organization?' Instead of addressing tax payer funding of religious organizations he focused on the privilege of religious organizations to choose who they hire, regardless of their funding sources. He only said he 'worked closely' with these organizations to influence their hiring practices and what that means I really have no idea.
