Seperation of Church and State

I support anti-discrimination language in the regulations for prosepective adoptive/foster parents licensing.   We have a seperation of State and Religion in this country for a reason.  If faith based organizations wish to pursue excluding individuals let them do so in the private adoption sector.  That is where it belongs, not in the State/public arena.  Whatever happened to the idea of separation of State and Church in the state of Viriginia?  If it is so easy to ignore this what next item that our Constitution was based on will be nixed for the favor of one group of people.  It is time to move this state forward and not backwards.
