Protect the Ability of Faith-based Organizations to Maintain Their Integrity

Faith-based organizations that provide adoption services should not be asked to compromise the very belief system that makes them unique.  Faith-based points of view are protected by the Constitution's free-speech amendment.  Until it becomes a crime in this country to believe that a set of parents is comprised of a man and a woman, faith-based adoption agencies should be able to maintain the integrity of their belief systems in the way they function in this area.
