There must be another way to encourage people to make the sacrifice to adopt children without making it into a forced bigotry against religious adoption organizations.

The Supreme Court has NOT ruled that people of homosexual behavior for a Protected Class of citizens. Neither Obama nor the Attorney General in his federal administration has the authority to pronounce that courts must use Higher Scrutiny for cases involving the rights in question of people of homosexual behavior.

Adopting an child Indian child, for instance has to be (Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978) according to the child's extended family, and that child's subculture. Why can't it be so, in cases where there is more than one choice of agreeable foster parents?

There are legal precedents in history to regulate adoption. The government shouldn't just be trying to place chidlren so as to minimize expense, because it will be many years before the consequences of such actions surface.


Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
