A Statement from Center for Arizona Policy President, Cathi Herrod, Esq.
Today, children needing a forever home won at the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Court today unanimously ruled that the city of Philadelphia violated the U.S. Constitution by discriminating against Catholic Social Services, a religious foster care agency, in the city’s “nondiscrimination” law.
All justices agreed that including religious organizations in foster care services maximizes the number of foster parents, benefitting children looking for a loving home.
It is my hope then that the Court will continue to take a bold stance against the growing hostility toward the religious rights spelled out in the U.S. Constitution, and that it will uphold the rights of Americans to exercise their religious beliefs and allow them to live and work accordingly.
