Sexual Orientation Requirements appear to be illegal

The addition of clauses requiring non-discrimination for sexual orientation of the religious adoption agencies is overbearing.

DSS does not have the authority to make new law.

Where in the Code of Virginia does DSS get the authority to make new regulations concerning the acceptance or non-acceptance of highly controversial issues surrounding sexual orientation?
