Reject the proposed revision based on "sexual orientation" addition

We demand that the Commonwealth of Virginia reject any changes to the adoption codes that discriminate against religious groups who do not recognize homosexual relationships as normal, Godly, and wholesome.  Where is your legal authority to slip this change in?  Where is your common sense? At the very least, the comment period must be extended, and this sneaky, last minute approach must be stopped. We will see to it that the Governor, AG, and our State Senator and Delegate get involved in stopping this.
