proposed regulations

Dear Sirs,

I am deeply disturbed over the proposed new regulations in which disagreeing with "sexual orientation" as a factor in caring for foster children.  In a recent case in England a couple that has taken care of several foster children was not allowed to continue to do so because they considered homosexuality wrong. What intolerance!

I consider homosexuality very wrong and would never want a homosexual or anyone that would try to push homosexuality on children to take care of them. Would I be disqualifed as a foster parent?

Certainly if this regulation came into affect, the best foster parents would be disqualified.

Sincerely, Jerrilyb /forsyth
