Supreme Court to decide religous librty case regarding foster careThe Supreme Court agreed Monday to decide if foster care agencies can turn down gay and lesbian couples, an indication that the court's conservative majority may be ready to give religious objectors greater freedom to skirt laws with which they disagree.

The dispute from Philadelphia is another in a series of challenges brought by Catholic and other religious groups and individuals that object to same-sex marriage.

The justices already are considering three major religious liberty cases this year on state funding for religious schools, their right to fire teachers despite employment discrimination laws, and challenges to the Affordable Care Act's requirement that employers offer free insurance coverage for contraceptives.
