As long as I, as a Christian, can opt out tax wise of everything I find offensive that the state funds as well.
Don't consider it "discrimination" is like saying the grass is blue or the sky is green.
It IS discrimination. It's just discrimination you approve of, which doesn't stop it from being discrimination on an area that is protected by the 14th amendment.

The bible says a lot of crap that modern science has debunked.
It endorsed slavery.
It endorsed misogyny.
It endorsed genocide.

Except we can document the harms from alcoholism.
The state acknowledges that and recognizes the harm to children from alcoholism.
The same is not true of homosexuality.

I personally feel that it should be more up to the child in such situations.
If the orphan doesn't want to be adopted by a gay parent, then they shouldn't be.
Do you feel that personal religious choices should keep a child who would be fine with having a gay parent should keep that child from being adopted by a gay parent?
