Faith based agencies

This law would force most faith based adoption agency accross the state to close.  It is not the states place to decided on moral values for religious organizations.  Some of thes agencies have been helping to place children in loving homes for almost a hundred years.  With one incorrect action by the legislator you would perminetly end this magnificent work these people have been sacrificing to bring to our Commonwealth for all these years.  Virginia has a wounderful history of knowing and doing what is right.  It was from the Virginia colony that many of our countries earliest leaders were born and raised.  Let please not have Virginia be the birth place of rejecting what those great men gave to all of us. 

God Bless,

Joe Lalli
