adoption by homosexual couples

I respect your efforts to not discriminate against any persons. However, forcing faith based organizations to serve couples who are homosexual is a type of discrimination against the faith based organizations. The moral standard that is held by the Churches and Synagogues of our country are the glue that holds our society together. These efforts that undermine the core beliefs that we, as a society hold dear, are the beginning of the end of our civilization. I sympathize with those who struggle with same sex attraction, but we still cannot bring to an end our core beliefs. The proper development of a child can only be accomplished in the home of a husband and wife. Whether the home is that if a single parent or a same sex couple, the development of the child will always be deficient to that of a home  where there are a man and a woman as the parents.
