Unfair to force gay adoptions!

The thought of forcing a Christian adoption agency to place children with gay couples is ridiculous!  I know there are places that gays can go to adopt children, and that's their business, but a Christian agency must never be forced to do what they would consider  absolutely evil!  If I owned these agencies, and this passed, I would close my doors before I would adopt children into gay families!  The government has crossed a dangerous line in accepting sexual orientation into the same catagory as race, sex, or religion.  (And by the way, don't adoption agencies still attempt to match children to families in these areas, anyway?)

Please, Virginia, allow Christian agencies to exercise their beliefs without discrimination against THEM.
