New proposed licensing regulation regarding adoption agencies

I am writing about my concern about the proposed reg concerning faith based adoption agencies. 

I love my country and especially the principles on which it was founded.  Our founding fathers gave the credit to God for many things.  See for examples of some of these historical documents

I am very concerned in the way our country is heading and I believe that is why we are no longer the most prosperous country in the world.  We have gotten away from our roots and how we were founded.  Do we want to turn this country around and become the greatest country in the world??  If so, let's get back to how it started. 

Please carefully look at the regulation that is being propsed that would limit Christian adoption agencies from accepting Christian applicants.  You may run those great agencies out of your state and make a bigger splash nationwide!!  When other states allow them to continue and you don't, you could get a much worse black eye.
