I am writing to express my approval of the new language that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and religion. This is a huge step forward for the state and I wholeheartedly offer my support.
To those that say it would limit freedom of expression of religion of religious placing agencies, I disagree. This is not limiting freedom of religion. It is limiting using religion to discriminate and be hateful.
Way to go Virginia!
