Pete Buttigieg, Justin Mikita, Debra Messing & More React To Trump Administration Moving to Block LGBTQ Couples From Adopting

Celebrities are calling out and reacting to the Trump Administration allowing a bill to move forward to the Supreme Court which would give adoption agencies the right to refuse LGBTQ couples to adopt a child.

In the bried, that was filed this week, the DOJ is arguing that “cities should not be able to protect LGBTQ+ couples from discrimination by religious organizations.”

It all dates back to 2018 when Catholic Social Services sued the city of Philadelphia. CSS refused to place a child with a same sex couple, which went against their contract with the city that stated they must abide by nondiscrimination policies.

The case is now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The DOJ’s brief claims that “The City impermissibly targeted religious organizations … the city focused only on religious agencies, making just a single inquiry to a secular foster-care agency. … City officials made no effort to determine whether other secular agencies perform home studies for everyone who requests them.”

Many celebs are slamming the administration for allowing the case to go to the Supreme Court at all.

“Tax dollars should not be used to discriminate. Period,” Pete Buttigieg, who is gay and a former Presidential hopeful, wrote on Twitter in regards to the news.

Earlier over the weekend, Donald Trump confused a lot of Twitter users by liking this tweet.

You can see how other celebs are reacting to the bill inside…
