Do not discriminate against faith based adoption agencies

Proposed Virginia Administrative Code section 22 VAC 40-131-170 provides that:

"[Private adoption agencies] shall prohibit acts of discrimination based on . . . sexual orientation, disability or family status to:

1. Delay or deny a child's placement; or
2. Deny an individual the opportunity to apply to become a foster or adoptive parent."

As a parent and a Christian, I deeply oppose VAC 40-131-170.    This nation was founded on Judeo Christian principles, and a Christian home should be the FIRST place that children should be placed.  The homosexual agenda should not run roughshod over the rights of children and thousands of potential Christian foster parents.
