Relatedly, Third Circuit: A Catholic charity that has provided services to the city of Philadelphia for a century, but whose religious beliefs preclude it from certifying same-sex couples as foster parents, is not entitled to a preliminary injunction that would require the city to renew its contract with the charity. (Also the Third Circuit: You guys have helped a lot of kids together over the past 100 years, so it would be fantastic if you could work this out.)
