The Supreme Court recently made their ruling in Fulton v. Philadelphia, and unfortunately for the LGBTQ community, the decision didn’t go their way.
In the case, the Supreme Court said “that Catholic foster care agencies can reject gay couples when placing children up for adoption.
Here’s what Catholic League President Bill Donohue had to say about the situation: “This is a huge victory for religious liberty and a resounding defeat for LGBTQ activists.” Gay activists have “launched a contrived assault on the rights of Catholic social service agencies,” he added.
He’s referring to the city of Philadelphia’s decision to stop foster children from being placed with the Catholic Social Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia as a result of the group’s beliefs regarding traditional marriage and it’s refusal to place children with same-sex couples.
“This decision makes it more difficult for LGBTQ activists to argue that sexual orientation and sexual identity are analogous to race. They are not,” Donohue said.
