Scotus Will Hear A Religious Freedom Case Out Of Philadelphia

02.25.20 | Bob Price

At issue is whether a Catholic foster care agency in the city has the right to deny child placement in same-sex households.

Philadelphia suspended the foster care program over that policy.

The charity is now suing the city on religious freedom grounds. They claim there is "precedent" for their stance on this issue.

The foster-care case out of Philadelphia is staled to be heard in the high court's next term, which starts in October.
