Florida’s Bill HB7111 would allow agencies and religious organizations to not serve gay couples or any others who do not meet their criteria for adoption. The objection is that even though many of these agencies are “private,” they continue to receive state funds and serve the state with adoptions. The opposition calls this discrimination.  Those supporting the bill are quick to point out that there are plenty of agencies that have no policies that would affect gay couples in regards to adoption.  There are still plenty of opportunities for a variety of couples and individuals to adopt while allowing private religious agencies to follow their values and morals.
