Trump Administration Argues That Adoption Agencies Should Be Able To Reject Gay Couples


Donald Trump administration argues that adoption agencies should be able to reject gay couples.

Trump administration says, in a brief to the Supreme Court on Wednesday, that a taxpayer-funded organization should be able to reject gay couples.

“Philadelphia has impermissibly discriminated against religious exercise” and the city’s actions “reflect unconstitutional hostility toward Catholic Social Services religious beliefs,” the government adds in the brief.

The brief was arranged by the Department of Justice in the case of Fulton v. The city of Philadelphia, which centers on the refusal of Catholic Social Services, a religious nonprofit that operates a child welfare agency in Philadelphia, to place adoptive and foster children with same-sex couples in contravention of the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance.
