I'm So Confused

The Supreme Court of the United States will hear arguments to decide whether the right to free exercise of religion applies when Christians engage in business.
The Court will decide whether the religious owners of a family business, or their closely held, for-profit corporation, have free exercise rights that are violated by Obamacare's requirement that they include abortion inducing contraceptives in their employee health insurance coverage. (American Family Association post March 25, 2014)

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Then the commissioners and satraps began trying to find a ground of accusation against Daniel in regard to government affairs; but they could find no ground of accusation or evidence of corruption, inasmuch as he was faithful, and no negligence or corruption was to be found in him.
Daniel 6:4

Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.
Romans 13:1

I'm praying for a Daniel save today but am confused what Paul was saying here in Romans.  It would be a good argument for the government against Christians.  What gives anyway?  Where did the "no shirt, no service" go?  We live in a fallen world.
