Support Religious Freedom

I am a Virginia resident and I support the Regulations adopted April 20, 2011. These regulations prohibit discrimination based on race, religion or national origin.  They do not prohibit adoption based on sexual orientation.  But to add sexual orientation would infringe on the freedom of faith-based agencies and might cause them to leave Virginia - disservice to needy children.  It would also restrict the freedom of birth parents in the placement of their children based on their faith convictions.

Please sustain the April 20th vote and reject any changes that would discriminate against faith-based agencies. 

Thank you.
