Does Religion Play a Party in a Custody Case in South Carolina?

Will the Court take my religious faith into consideration when awarding custody?

South Carolina law (S.C. Code §63-15-20) does require the court when placing the child in the custody of an individual or a private agency, whenever practicable, to select a person of the same religious faith of the child. In the case where there is a difference in the religious faith of the parents then the court must look at the religious faith of the child. If the religious faith of the child is not ascertainable, then the faith of either parent shall be considered.
