  • You go Supreme Court!

    This is a big deal and will effect many agencies like Catholic Family Services...

    Supreme Court sides with Catholic foster agency that excludes same-sex couples in 9-0 ruling

    The Supreme Court sided unanimously with a Catholic foster agency in a dispute against the city of Philadelphia over whether it should be banned from participating in the city's foster program because it excludes same-sex couples.

    The group, Catholic Social Services (CSS), claimed that "Philadelphia’s attempts to exclude the Catholic Church from foster care" violated the First Amendment. Lawyers for the city, meanwhile, said that CSS "lacks a constitutional right to demand that DHS offer it a contract that omits the same nondiscrimination requirement every other FFCA must follow when performing services for the City."

    Another 9-0 ruling too.

    That's gonna need an awful lot of court packing to overturn

    I'm always still in trouble again

        It's almost as if they're sending the Dems a message.

          At the end of the day it seems pretty simple.

          The program already had a discrimination exemption clause. So, it wasn't "universal". This meant that the city had to work harder why this exemption wasn't reasonable if they would offer it to others.

            Don't think for a moment that the Democrats wouldn't be willing to try it.

              They also voted 7-2 to keep Obamacare. I'd been surprised if it had gone the other way given that Roberts has shown a previous willingness to redefine it in order to make it legal.

                Which is a major win for anyone that got layed off in 2020 with a pre-existing medical condition. If there is nothing else good about Obamacare, it is that is forces the medical insurance industry to insure people with ongoing medical conditions when they have to transition from one insurance company to another due to a job change or layoff.

                And second to it is the age 26 provision for children. It often takes a little while for the kids to get jobs that have decent insurance.
                My 'faith' designation is 'Christian'. But I do not want the label "Christian" leading to mockery of faith in Christ. Consequently, I apologize to those of you reading words of mine written here that reflect poorly on the what Faith in Christ means, or what Faith in Christ can in fact do in terms of bringing Grace, Mercy, and Love into the world.
