I support religious freedom

Faith based agencies must be allowed to continue to assist the community with respect to their diverse beliefs.    Many birthparents and prospecitve adooptive parents hold these beliefs as well and they have every right to work with agencies that share their religious values to have their children adopted by poeple who share their religious values.

Forcing Agencies and individuals to choose between following their own values or follwoing the law would be an unprecedented violation of religious freedom in Virginia.
