    This Republican administration is turning Virginia into an embarrassment. Instead of concentrating on important issues like the economy and job creation, they are obsessed with implementing a sick misguided religious fundamentalist agenda that deliberately violates human rights and discriminates against people in a way that violates the US Constitution. The First Amendment is supposed to protect Americans from overzealous religious misinterpretations being enshrined in law. And @Roger, you are right in that no child of gay parents should be exposed to hatred and ridicule! Guess who's doing that to them? Certainly not the gay community. Perhaps society needs to stop the harassment of children instead. Read the bible yourself, at least that part is in there.

    roger maybe you need to touch up on your bible study. It also said that we are not the ones to judge other peope for what they do, so why are you judging others? There are so many children in need of loving homes and this is pathetic VA has allowed this.

    It's about time this happened! The gay community needs to understand that kids get harassed when their parents are found to be gay and no child should ever be exposed to that kind of environment! Read the bible!
