I support anti-discrimination language to be inclusive of all.

The KKK has used teachings from the Bible to justify their stance against other races.  Is this really the route we want to go in VA?  To allow a group using their interpretations of the Bible to determine our laws and regulations?  What about the other religions that have their own Holy Books and may take a different stance on gays/lesbians, a more supportive and inclusive stance?  What about other Christians that understand the verses in the Bible utilized to put down homosexuals are actually taken out of context in order to support  misguided morals and values.  Return the regulations to include ALL walks of life, gays/lesbians included.  It is time this state be inclusive of all and protect the rights of all.
