Religious protection is putting kids first

I think we would all agree that the kids are the priority here.  The birthparents who have the courage and love to make an adoption plan for their children have the right to know that their child will be loved in a family with one father and one mother.  Every human needs a mother and a father.  Unfortunately in our world, many children are lacking a mother or a father.  The best we can give these children who are already suffering the loss of their biological parents is a loving adoptive mother and a loving adoptive father.

It would only hurt these children to force adoption agencies out of business because they will not submit to "political correctness".  We all have our roles in this world.  I don't pretend that I can play the role of a father and neither should any other woman.  And my husband knows that he cannot pretend to play the mother role.  God created us in such a way to complement each other, and he knew exactly what he was doing when he created the family.

Please think of the children and their biological parents who would only want the best for their children.
