Yes for Anti-Discrimination
 

While it is fair for religious organizations to be concerned about their freedoms being impacted upon, there are far more institutions that facilitate the adoption of children than religious groups. We also, as living and breathing human beings, as compassionate individuals, cannot support institutionalized hatred and prejudice.

The question of lifestyle (or genetic predisposition) may be an issue, but who am I, who are you, to pass judgment? Science supports an adoption process free of discrimination. Sociology supports an adoption process free of discrimination. Any religion, any religious text that celebrates good works and brotherhood while decrying hatred supports an adoption process free of discrimination.
