Religious Liberty

There are some people who would argue that not allowing homosexual adoption is akin to discrimination.  If that is allowed, would that not be discrimination against religious adoption agencies?  If religious adoption agencies are forced to go against their beliefs and allow homosexual adoption, they will be forced to either violate their beliefs or close their doors.  Look at what happened in Massachusetts... when a similar law was passed, Catholic Charities - the largest adoption agency in the US - was forced to close its doors.  How is that better for the children?  Study after study has proven that the best environment for children to be raised is with a mother and a father.  This is not about political correctness - it's about the best environment for children.  Let's keep the law as-is.
