Philadelphia archbishop: Supreme Court should uphold Church’s First Amendment rights
November 03, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: “Not long before I arrived back in Philadelphia as archbishop, the city abruptly decided that no more children could be welcomed into foster homes arranged and supported by Catholic Social Services,” said Archbishop Nelson Pérez. The city “decided that Catholic Social Services could no longer place foster children in loving homes unless it also provided written certifications for same-sex couples, contrary to its religious beliefs about marriage ... Essentially, we are being told that the Catholic Church must leave its faith at the door if it wants to serve those in need.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
