PROTECT THE CHILD, NOT THE POTENTIAL ADOPTIVE PARENT!
 

Please protect religious adoption agencies.  If an agency proides good parents for a needy child, it should be embraced, not destroyed.  Do not buckle to the politically-correct culture.  Study after study shows that children need a healthy, traditional, two-parent home to grow up into healthy, balanced adults.  Homosexuality is a lifestyle that has serious health risks-that is simply a fact (see the CDC website for statistics).  Is that something that we want to encourage with an impressionable, developing child?  A reasonable person would not encourage that lifestyle for their child if they truely loved them; neither should the state agencies that regulate adoption.  You are responsible for the outcome in children's lives.  PROTECT THE CHILD, NOT THE POTENTIAL ADOPTIVE PARENT!
