Within the last few minutes the Virginia Social Services Board voted to reject proposed regulations that would allow same-sex couples to adopt children (see last week's post for more background). These regulations would have undermined religious liberty by forcing faith-based adoption agencies to comply with a regulation (by unelected bureaucrats, much less a law) fundamentally counter to their beliefs, or close down. We will have more on this tonight or tomorrow. For now, even though if approved today the process still had many safeguard hurdles before becoming final, we have reason to celebrate.
