Infringement on Religious freedom

To force faith based adoption agencies to compromise their religious convictions by adopting children into homosexual homes is morally wrong and will in the long run do great damage to the adoption of children in Virginia.

Since there are plenty of agencies that are willing to place children in the homes of homsexuals, there is no discrimination here, only moral conviction. The discrimination here is clearly against the faith based adoption agencies. This law will put them out of business.

This is no different than forcing churches to hire homosexual pastors or employees when they feel that the Bible clearly teaches that homosexuality is a sin.  

Virginia, be sensible and do the right thing!
