Standards for licensed child placing agencies in the Commonwealth of Virginia

I strongly recommend against the passage of a Virginia Department of Social Services inititiative to pass minimum standards for licensed child placing agencies in the Commonwealth of Virginia, 22VAC40-131-170 Part B, which states the licensee shall prohibit acts of discrimination based on race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, disbaility or family status...  This initiative represents a attempt to further breakdown the family structure of our state by allowing persons who cannot provide a the traditional family nucleus (a Father and Mother) so critical to the moral foundation of our state, country and the world we live in.
