I am strongly opposed to 22VAC 40-131-170 (B) and the the proposed language which would include sexual orientation and type of family. Such a proposal would bow to a special interest group while denying the religious freedoms of others. Faith-based adoption services must be allowed their religious freedoms. Allowing the new regulations would cause numerous faith-based organizations to close thus denying countless children the help they so desperately need.
The traditional family has long been the bedrock of this great nation. I urge you to continue to support the traditional family. I urge you to protect religious freedom. I urge you to continue to allow children the services provided by faith-based adoption services.
Oppose the new regulations proposed by the Virginia Department of Social Services.
