Court Says San Francisco's Blast at Catholic Church Was Legal

(06-03) 15:52 PDT SAN FRANCISCO – San Francisco didn’t cross into constitutionally forbidden territory of government hostility to religion when the Board of Supervisors denounced a Vatican order to Catholic Charities not to place adoptive children with same-sex couples, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.


california disagree with the Vatican and ok a local government in denouncing a religon? wow, who would have thought? gee this is so out of character for them.

just more proof that there is little justification for anyone who would claim we have just leaders.

They don’t call it the 9th district circus for nothing. Never anticapate a conservitive view point ever to be issued by this court. :shrug: The Catholic League is not giving up on this issue, and they deserve our support, both in prayer, communication and $ IMO

Bigotry and hatred. Legal. Public Policy.

Upheld by leftist dominated courts.

They are the most overturned circuit I believe. So, there is hope.:thumbsup:
“The Thomas More Law Center will seek review by the full court and said that, if necessary, the case will be brought to the United States Supreme Court.”

God bless the St. Thomas More Society! Yes, they and their cases should be remembered every day in our prayers. And remembered with donations too.:thumbsup:

Goodness. I feel terrible for the kids caught in the middle of this :(. When will people realize that they have no civil right to adopt?
