Religious Freedom, or violate the law!

As a member of a a faith-based organisation which has helped millions around the World, our Nation, and our Commonwealth attain their faith, their love, and their dream, it appals me to think that the great Commonwealth of Virginia would demand many agencies to violate their consciences in favour of what it considers a more expedient law. Obviously, the people who came up with this propposal never read the writings of our own Thomas Jefferson on Religious Freedom!  The Board did uphold religious liberty on April 20, and I am quite confident that it will continue to do so. It must do so, lest it violate our laws!
