I am opposed to this proposed new standard . Faith based organizations will be denied the right to provide services in accordance with their religious and moral beliefs. This is a violation of the Constitutional right to the free exercise of religion. The proposal is also in opposition to Virginia Code 63.2-1201.1 and 63.2-1225 that details who is eligible to adopt and Section 15-A of the Virginia Constitution.
