support truly charitable organizations

Religiously affiliated social service agencies have done most of the teaching, feeding, clothing, and healing in this country since its founding. Religiously based adoption agencies have lower overhead costs and do a better job at serving the children in their care, as well as matching children to couples who are committed and prepared to care for a child. They do this so well because their motivation is true charity--they are motivated by love and not money or political idealogy. Please allow these organizations to continue the job they have been doing so well.
