Via AAN:

Thursday morning the Supreme Court ruled the city of Philadelphia violated a Catholic adoption agency’s First Amendment protections when it broke ties with the agency over its decision not to place foster children with same-sex couples. The Court sided unanimously with Catholic Social Services in the case.

The Hill reports:

Writing for the court, Chief Justice John Roberts said that Philadelphia’s move violated the First Amendment’s Free Exercise clause. There were no dissents, but several justices wrote separate concurring opinions.

The dispute arose when Philadelphia stopped working with the foster agency after learning the group’s religious convictions barred it from placing children in the homes of gay and lesbian couples, and determined the agency’s refusal violated the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance.
