Discrimination against adoptive parents who hold historic Judeo-Christian values

Esteemed Legislators:

It seems incomprehensible that one of the historical founding states and ratifiers of the constitution of the United States, the state of Virginia,  would even consider a discriminatory law against families who share the values of our founding fathers and would like to provide a home for needy children through adoption.  It is not merely an outrage, but shame that you want to exclude families with Christian values from eligibility as adoptive parents.
