The U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding religious freedom for a Catholic Ministry that helps children find foster homes in Philadelphia is good news for Sunrise Children’s Services.  Sunrise is a Christian adoption agency that operates according to religious convictions. They’ve been serving Kentucky children for over 150 years, but Gov. Andy Beshear refuses to renew their state contract unless they cave in to radical gender ideology. Sunrise insists on its religious convictions—the same convictions that compel them to serve kids in the first place. The two situations are virtually identical. And it appears Gov. Beshear will be hard pressed to not renew the contract with Sunrise because failure to do so would be a violation of the recent ruling and of the U.S. Constitution.
