Foster parents offer hope and critical support to children facing tremendous challenges. But the city of Philadelphia has threatened that hope by telling longtime foster parents that they can’t work with Catholic Social Services because of the religious organization’s belief in marriage as the union of one man and one woman. 

The case Fulton v. City of Philadelphia went before the Supreme Court last week. Heritage Foundation scholar Ryan T. Anderson recently hosted a panel discussion breaking down the case and why it is a critical battle for thousands of foster children and religious liberty in America.

Today, we share that discussion with you on “The Daily Signal Podcast.” We also cover these stories:

  • Amid a GOP push to investigate voter fraud claims, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., attacks Republican leaders for “poisoning the well of our democracy.”
  • Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., says he will get involved if the Trump administration doesn’t allow Joe Biden to begin receiving intelligence briefings that address situations such as national security threats.
  • The Boston-based 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rules that Harvard University may continue to use race as a consideration in its admissions process. 

Enjoy the show.
