Faith-based agencies


Please do not try and legislate the beliefs of faith-based adoption agencies under the guise of "anti-discrimination".  These agencies have served the public for countless numbers of years.  They operate under and answer to a Higher Authority.  Regardless of current popular opinion, the Word of God is unfailing and true.  It is clear about what constitutes a marriage.  This is the criteria that needs to be followed when placing children.  Thank you for your attention.
