Faith-based adoption agencies

It's becoming increasingly clear that "Christians need not apply" for any job that comes under state regulations. In its drive to impose non-discrimination on our society, the state must discriminate against Christians, who have issues of conscience against certain immoral practices that are now considered "protected" by government entities. Our own government has in fact stripped Americans of their First Amendment Rights in the name of tolerance -- in a bloodless coup. It may interest the state -- and its citizens -- to learn that Americas first colleges, hospitals, and orphanages were founded by religious orders of one stripe or another. But how quickly America has turned its back on its founding and gone awhoring after the god of the state.

This is a despicable state of affairs, just the mere fact that the adoption regulating agency has even for one second entertained enforcing its godless worldview on the free people of Virginia. I say it's time to turn over adoption regulation entirely to private entities. The state has more power than is good for anyone. Time for a tax revolt to demonstrate that the people are not going to fund their own destruction.
