Against the Proposal

Private agency should be entitled to have its own adoption criteria. LGBT supporters should not be permitted to force their agenda on to those of us with strong Christian beliefs and morals. Why is it when Christians speak up for their rights and views, we are considered hurtful and narrow minded - yet when Homosexuals speak up, it is considered politically correct?

Let's keep the children as our top priority - if a Christian organization is willing and able to fulfill a need in their community by opening an Adoption Agency, we need to thank them and respect them. We most certainly should not be regulating them so much that they need to close their doors in order to remain faithful and true to their core values.

Thank you for listening.
