Children deserve to have a mother and a father

In this age of  extreme political correctness it is clear that common sense has gone out of the window. Every child needs a mother and a father in order to thrive properly. No matter how much love or money a same-sex couple may provide, it is simply not enough where children are concerned. Two men cannot provide the type of nuturing and experience that a child needs and the same goes for two women. The roles of males and females differ greatly. Furthermore, most homosexuals blur the gender roles at the very best of times. That's fine when among adults. It's not fine when impressionable children are exposed to this deviancy. Additonally, discriminating against Christians ( who stress good morals and family values) in order to appear modern and inclusive is not the answer to a problem that doesn't exist in the first place. Freedom of religion is a right in this country and absolutely no established religion condones homosexuality. Therefore it is only to be expected and accepted that Christian foster care agencies will not place children in unnatural and unhealthy environments. They are to be commended for that and furthermore, they are expressing their right to religious freedom. It is wrong of the State of Virginia and its Social Services Department to illegally crush the rights of the religious and it is my sincerest hope that with the numerous protests against the proposed action, that common sense and true morality will finally prevail. And if it doesn't, then hopefully a Supreme Court lawsuit will follow.
