Is this constitutional???

To say that people who have religious views about something is not a reason to prohibit them from being foster parents. This is a clear violation of  that person's constitutional rights. The same goes for chistian adoption agencies. There are so many good people who are willing to take in children and give them a good home. One's religion shouldn't have anything to do with it. By prohibiting christians from serving in this way, you will be severely limiting the number of foster homes and adoption agencies. This is about the kids. Not about politics. The kids need a loving environment. This action would punnish them, the kids. Please do not do this.
