Allow Catholic adoption agencies to help those in need

In reality, the issue here is not one of whether or not two men or two women living together can adopt a child.  This is already permitted.  The issue here is whether or not Catholic adoption services in Virginia will be forced to close.  This has already happened in other states.  The Catholic Church, as well as other religious organizations that still have principles, should never be forced to stop helping those in need.  To regulate these charitable organizations out of existence is not only detrimental to the well being of those they serve - in this case the children in need of a loving home - but is also a terrible affront to religious liberty.
