Catholic Charities isn't going down without a fight.  The agency will file an appeal against a ruling that allows the state to end its contracts for foster and adoptive care placement services.  They had initially asked a judge to protect their religious right to deny licenses to same sex couple, but a judge ruled against the religious group.  According to court documents, the judge claimed no one is entitled to a state contract, and if the agency couldn't follow Illinois law, then the state is not obligated to continue its services with Catholic Charities.  A lawyer for the agency says they plan to ask the judge to reconsider his decision.
