I oppose the proposed adoption regs

Fundamental religious freedom to limit adoption to traditional family structures would be denied and abrogated by the proposed regulations on adoption. The proposed regulations are inherently self-contradictory, because religious freedom for Christians, Jews, and Muslims who maintain strict adherence to traditional family structures cannot be reconciled with a demand that adoption be permitted to homosexual couples. Orthodox believers in all three faiths are opposed to homosexual behaviors. The proposed regulations should be thrown out.
