Gov McDonnell, Dr, Sood SUPPORT adoption regulations requiring licensees to prohibit discrimination


Governor McDonnell said in March 2010  "There really isn't any rampant discrimination on any basis in Virginia, If you're going to have a law, it needs to actually address a real problem."  McDonnell issued an executive directive saying workplace discrimination, including bias against gays, is prohibited in Virginia.

Recently, McDonnell said  "Current regulations that say you can't discriminate on the basis of race, color or national origin I think are proper. I think previous efforts to expand that to a number of other classes are going to have very strict scrutiny to make sure that we don't inhibit the very fine work some faith-based organizations are doing."

Is McDonnell really saying it is OK for those agencies to enforce their and his Religious beliefs on prospective parents and the children they want to give a home?

Join us in telling Governor McDonnell to support the proposed regulations to open more loving homes to children.
