Change in the adoption rules

I fully support same sex marriage. I am not opposed in any way to those whom God has made into homosexuals. But I am opposed to forcing religious organizations to engage in activities that they consider immoral. Please don't force adoptions agencies that follow religious guidelines to handle adoptions to same-sex couples if this violates their religious practices. There are other adoptions agencies that can help these couples.

I fear that some, if not all, of those agencies that oppose this new rule may decide to go out of the adoption business. That would be extremely unfortunate.
