Virginia Department of Social Services adoption regulations based on sexual orientation

I vehemently do NOT support the regulations which the Virginia Department of Social Services has proposed to require state licensed adoption agencies, including private church-run adoption agencies, to not refuse to process adoption of children based on sexual orientation.  This is a violation of religious freedom, let alone harmful to children.
