Protect Religious Adoption/Foster Agencies

I urge you to protect religious adoption/foster agencies.  Their services should be available to those who choose to use them.  It is intolerant to discriminate on the basis of religion and to force your opinions upon them as it would be for them to force them on you.  Protect freedom of belief in this country and protect those children that would benefit from their services.  And couples who choose to place their children with faith-based agencies should have that right.
