No funding for those who discriminate

I am a native Virginian, and I firmly believe that faith based organizations should not receive any government funding if they refuse to follow state regulations regarding adoption which includes not discriminating against perspective adoptive families.  Churches should not receive special privileges.  This isn't about "preserving religious freedom," as churches in this country have too many special privileges as it is.  This is about holding religious-based agencies accountable.  I do not want my tax dollars going to any organization that pretends to do good while spreading hate and discrimination.  That is not fair to me as a tax payer.
