The U.S. Supreme Court declined to intervene Thursday in a legal battle between the city of Philadelphia and a Catholic foster agency that will not place foster children with same-sex couples.
Catholic Social Services asked the court in July to issue an injunction that would compel the city to resume placing children with its foster care program while litigation in the lower courts continued.
The article goes on to state the following:
But in a loss to Catholic Social Services, the Supreme Court denied their request for an injunction. Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch said they would have granted the request.
Philadelphia halted foster care referrals to Catholic Social Services in March after learning the agency did not place foster children with same-sex couples because of its religious objections to same-sex marriage.
