Protecting Christian Adoption

We must oppose what the State of VA is trying to do.  It will harm Christian adoption agencies and force them to go against their beliefs.  As an adoptive parent, I fully support agencies not being railroaded into accepting "family structures" that are in opposition to God's word.  All agencies that are Christian will be attacked if this passes.  It is setting a dangerous precedent.   Children should be placed in homes where Christian values are taught, lived and respected.  We will have a healthier society.
