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 of Virginia.
The message of exclusion you will send to children with strong religious identities, as well as to potential foster and adoptive parents is unconscionable and destructive.
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 our state. This is not the state's right to overrule a private business that is only HELPing children, not hurting them. SHAME on you for thinking that you need to make life even harder for these precious little children that need willing and able families to love them. This sounds suspiciously communist to me.
