Religious Freedom Should Prevail




One of the founding principles of our great nation is religious liberty.  Faith-based child placement agencies have a right to make decisions and act according to their religious beliefs, including their beliefs about marraige and family life. This right MUST be respected and preserved.  Forcing agencies and individuals to choose between following their own religious beliefs or following the proposed discriminatory regulation would be an unprecedented violation of religious liberty in Virginia, and a sad day for our country.
