Virginia regulation of Christian agencies
 

wantedThat principle has been twisted and interpreted to mean that people of faith shall NOT be allowed to speak and live their faith freely.  Instead the government is to tell them what they can and cannot do.  This piece of legislation being considered by Virginia is precisely an example of that distortion of our Constitutional principle of freedom of faith.  It people of faith want their children adopted by others of like mind they should be free to do so without government interference.  No one forces an expectant mother to contact a faith based institution to help find a home for their child.  They contact these institutions because that is what they want for their baby. And they should be free to do so.

Passing a law allowing the government to dictate how people of faith may run their businesses and where pleople of faith may take their children for adoption is imprisonment through regulation.  And is also control of an area specifically excluded from government intervention by the Constitution.
