Uphold Religious Freedom
 

Faith-based adoption agencies have the right to establish guidelines for their services that are consistent with their religious beliefs.  If these faith-based groups are going to have success in supporting adoption (both to receive children who need adoption and placement of children with those who are prepared to receive them) the religious views of the religious group/agency must be respected and upheld. 

The Gay agenda is a deception attempting to convert a purely moral issue into a civic discussion about rights. 

The association of men and women to participate in the birth of children is a sacred partnership with God.  No two men and no two women in association will ever be able to conceive and give birth to a child.  A religious organization has the right to uphold the sanctity of marriage and the natural, God sanctioned formation of a family lead by a man and a woman committed to each other.   

Protect the religious freedoms of faith-based adoption agencies.
