Supreme Court rebuffs Catholic
agency over same-sex foster care

Reuters, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/1/2018 12:02:19 AM

The U.S. Supreme Court declined on Thursday to force the city of Philadelphia to resume the placement of children in need of foster care with a Catholic agency that refuses to accept gay couples as foster parents. In a decision that Catholic Social Services had said would force its foster care program to close, the justices refused the religious agency’s request for an injunction compelling the city to allow it to place children in foster homes while litigation over the dispute continues in lower courts. n the brief order that did not give any reasons for the decision, three conservative members of the court, Justices Clarence Thomas,

Comments:
If the Supreme Court can grant protection to transsexuals and other mentally ill offshoots of the homosexual community, why are they suddenly turning against the Christian Faith that inspired our laws? What good is it to swear on a Bible if you don´t follow the basic tenants written within it?

And the slow, relentless descent of our legal and cultural institutions into the abyss of abomination continues, the eventual result being that the earth itself is defiled and "vomiteth out her inhabitants." (Leviticus 18:25.)

when it comes to adoption, most women who are looking to place their child for adoption, it is their CHOICE who gets their child as long as the state has done the appropriate background checks. So, for adoption, it´s choice, a word the leftists believe supersedes every decision. right?

The way I see it, with the current mess in the Catholic Church hierarchy, they could not posssibly allow same sex couples to foster children. They will just have to shut down that arm of Catholic Social Services. Pope Francis might not share my view due to his liberal state of mind.

Could it be that the mess in the Catholic church is what happens when one guy is in charge? Christ said "upon this rock..." but what was He talking about? Is the church built on Peter or on the apostles, whose natural leader was Peter? (Eph. 2:20 "(household of God, v19) built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.) Notice that the metaphors are used interchangeably through the scriptures. In 1 Corinthians 3:10-11, Paul calls himself the expert builder and Jesus the foundation built. In Revelation 21:14 we read the apostles are the foundation of the city of God. Here Peter has the keys; in Revelation 1:18; 3:7, Jesus has the keys. In John 9:5, Jesus is “the light of the world”; in Matthew 5:14, his disciples are. In one case, Jesus is the foundation and Paul is the builder. In another case, the apostles and prophets are the foundation and Jesus is the cornerstone. In Matthew 16:18 Jesus is the builder. “I will build my church.” The foundation of the church is the apostles. And if Peter were really the "pope" at that time, then why are most of the books of the New Testament written by Paul? And, then, why should it have been passed on to anyone at all after the Holy Scriptures were assembled? We only know this because the Catholic church tells us. What do the Scriptures actually say? Titus 1:5 (letter written by Paul) "The reason I left you in Crete was that you might put in order what was left unfinished and appoint elders in every town, as I directed you." And, Acts 14:23 "Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church...".

In the midst of a clean-up of a BIG problem in the Roman Catholic Church comes a decision that shows the Supreme Court Justices spend too much time in air-conditioned buildings and not enough time breathing fresh air.

The conclusion of the Church is that the problem is a homosexual problem caused by an organized effort to destroy the clergy by Communists and homosexuals (who destroy every organization they have found so far).

Centuries of heated conflict between different churches and faiths, which have defied repeated spiritual and scholarly efforts to resolve, are SURE to find their resolution in this venue.

So on the count of three, everybody echo their favorite doctrinal / ecclesial flame at their favorite interreligious / interdenominational rival(s)...

After that, we can resolve age-old arguments about politics on some sports site, won´t that be fun!

Paris - French Polynesian President Edouard Fritch has said the leaders of the French collectivity of islands in the South Pacific lied to the population for three decades over the dangers of nuclear testing. From 1960 to 1996, France carried out 193 nuclear tests in French Polynesia. The images, such as a mushroom cloud over the Mururoa atoll, provoked international protests. "I´m not surprised that I´ve been called a liar for 30 years. We lied to this population that the tests were clean. We lied," Fritch told officials in the local assembly Thursday in footage broadcast by Tahiti Nui Television. France´s overseas ministry declined

Port Moresby, The United States will not back down from its trade dispute with China, and might even double its tariffs, unless Beijing bows to U.S. demands, Vice President Mike Pence said on Saturday. In a bluntly worded speech at an Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) summit in Papua New Guinea, Pence threw down the gauntlet to China on trade and security in the region. "We have taken decisive action to address our imbalance with China," Pence declared. "We put tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese goods, and we could more than double that number."

Washington - Mira Ricardel Fired: An hour after Melania Trump called for the sacking of deputy national security advisor Mira Ricardel, the White House aide has been fired.

Gaza/Jerusalem - Palestinian militant groups in Gaza agreed on Tuesday to halt cross-border attacks immediately if Israel did the same, Palestinian officials said, after the most serious exchanges of aerial fire since a 2014 war. Since Monday, Israeli air strikes have killed seven Palestinians, at least five of them militants. Rocket attacks from Gaza killed a Palestinian man in Israel. "(Palestinian) factions have agreed to hold fire on condition Israel abides by this," said a Palestinian official familiar with Egyptian truce efforts. Another Palestinian official, asked when a ceasefire might start, said: "Immediately, should Israel reciprocate."

US National Security Advisor John Bolton has threatened to “squeeze” Iran’s economy “until the pips squeak,” just one week after Washington imposed a new round of crippling sanctions billed as the “toughest ever.” Speaking ahead of the ASEAN-US summit in Singapore, Bolton said that the Iranian government is already under “real pressure” and that the US would “significantly increase” the enforcement of sanctions. Bolton said there was “no doubt” that Iran has already begun looking for ways to evade sanctions, which hit the country’s oil, financial, shipping, nuclear and aviation industries.

The ministers discussed the various options for responding to the massive rocket fire carried out by the terrorist organizations from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory over the past 24 hours.

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?"

Scientists say they have uncovered how and why wombats produce cube-shaped poo - the only known species to do so. The Australian marsupial can pass up to 100 deposits of poop a night and they use the piles to mark territory. The shape helps it stop rolling away. Despite having round anuses like other mammals, wombats do not produce round pellets, tubular coils or messy piles. Researchers revealed on Sunday the varied elasticity of the intestines help to sculpt the poop into cubes.
