Religious Freedom Advocates Celebrate After SCOTUS Sides With Catholic Group On Gay Couple Foster Parents

Religious freedom advocates celebrated after the Supreme Court on Thursday sided with a Catholic group that rejects same-sex couples as foster parents.

“In the Court’s unanimous decision, Chief Justice Roberts made clear that the city cannot exclude … Catholic Social Services simply because city officials disagree with the religious agency’s sincere Catholic beliefs about marriage,” the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which legally represented the Catholic group, said in a press release on the ruling in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia.

“The Justices also recognized that protecting faith-affirming agencies will ensure foster children in need have every opportunity available to find a loving home,” the Becket Fund added.
