From whence comes the legal authority for DSS to require this?

B.    The licensee shall prohibit acts of discrimination based on race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, disability, or family status to:

1.    Delay or deny a child’s placement; or
2.    Deny an individual the opportunity to apply to become a foster or adoptive parent.
You are socially engineering this absolutely critical safety-net to include the spread of your religion of tolerance and moral-relativism.  Please explain from where you get the right to do so?
You are playing with the lives of children to further your dangerous, perverse and emotionally driven world-view and we demand that you cease immediately.
