Great work Virginia!

I am writing to express my approval of the new language that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and religion.  This is a huge step forward for the state and I wholeheartedly offer my support. 

To those that say it would limit freedom of expression of religion of religious placing agencies, I disagree.  This is not limiting freedom of religion.  It is limiting using religion to discriminate and be hateful.

Way to go Virginia!
