Freedom of agencies must be respected

Don;t hurt needy children by driving religious foster care and adoption agencies out of business.

If an agency provides good parents for children, they should be embraced, not rejected by the state fo Virginia.

The message of exclusion you will send to children with strong religious identities, as well as to potential fotser and adopteive parents is unconscionable and distructive.

The state of Virginia Social Services has no right to impose this strange new morality on other people, to the detriment of the neediest children in your state.

Please reconsider and let AMerican freedom be intact!
