    Default Re: Supreme court case

    This is a sad example of discrimination. I know love and caring of a child should be a first priority for any child in need of a home. I can also say that some "normal" families shouldn't have, or care for children. Any loving and able family should be allowed to adopt. I also believe if any people can provide the home, the care and the love a child needs, that should be all that is required.

    Trump admin to Supreme Court: Let adoption agencies reject LGBTQ families
    In the latest example of the Trump administration seeking to enable legal discrimination against LGBTQ people, the Justice Department is calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to allow religious-affiliated adoption agencies to refuse child placement into LGBTQ homes.
    In a 35-page brief, U.S. Solicitor General Noel Francisco and other Justice Department attorneys maintain the City of Philadelphia has “impermissibly discriminated against religious exercise” under the First Amendment by requiring Catholic Social Services to abide by a contract requiring LGBTQ non-discrimination practices in child placement.
    The case came about after the City of Philadelphia learned in March 2018 that Catholic Social Services, which the city had hired to provide foster care services to children in child welfare, was refusing to license same-sex couples despite a contract prohibiting these agencies from engaging in anti-LGBTQ discrimination.
    When the city said it would terminate the contract, Catholic Social Services sued on the basis it can maintain the contract and refuse placement into LGBTQ homes for religious reasons under the guarantee of free exercise of religion under the First Amendment.
    “While this case involves rejecting LGBTQ families, if the court accepts the claims made in this case, not only will this hurt children in foster care by reducing the number of families to care for them, but anyone who depends on a wide range of government services will be at risk of discrimination based on their sexual orientation, religion or any other characteristic that fails a provider’s religious litmus test.”

    I know the pro second amendment crowd didn't want to hear this.

    Supreme Court refusals deal big blow to Second Amendment, gun rights groups say
    The Supreme Court announced on Monday that they would refuse to hear 10 different cases appealing various gun laws that litigants say violates their Second Amendment rights.
    Among the cases that the court refused to hear were assault weapons bans in Massachusetts and Cook County, Illinois. The Supreme Court also elected not to hear similar cases from multiple states on permit requirements to carry a gun outside of the home for self-defense. The court also passed up a case out of California dealing with the “microstamping” of handgun ammunition as well as bans on interstate handgun sales.
    The right to carry has always been a hot topic among truckers, but a recent rash of highway violence brought about by protests over the death of George Floyd has brought gun rights to the forefront of conversation in many trucking industry circles.
