Where Is The Stopping Point?

And where is the stopping point to the "let the government pay" alternative?  Suppose an employer's sincerely held religious belief is offended by health coverage of vaccines, or paying the minimum wage or according women equal pay for substantially similar work.  Does it rank as a less restrictive alternative to require the government to provide the money or benefit to which the employer has a religion-based objection?
