Letter: Separation of church, state rings true in adoption case

Separation of church, state rings true in adoption case

It was gratifying to read that 23 years ago Judge Joseph Mattina had the wisdom to allow a single parent to adopt a baby. However, it should not go unnoticed that he had to remove from the case a religious institution that insisted the baby be placed with a married couple.

This is another example of why the separation of church and state is so important.

We cannot let religious dogma interfere with human reasoning.
