Please stop this regulation of Christian Adoption Agencies

Christian Adoption Agencies can set their standards as a matter of their Christian conscientious and they can be allowed to operate an adoption agency according to their principles of what is and who qualifies to be adoptive parents.  After all, they are one of a number of different choices of adoption agencies in the state and they are not causing any harm to anyone due to the standards that they have had up until now.  They should be allowed to operate as they have with the same standards.  Please stop government oppression of Christian Adoption Agencies.
