A California pro-family leader says state Democrats have
"declared war" on parents, morality, and children.
Democrats in the California Legislature have sent Gov. Jerry
Brown (D) a stack of bills that promotes what Randy
Thomasson of SaveCalifornia.com calls an "intolerant,
perverse sexual agenda." He is outraged that they passed
a handful of bad bills at the last minute.
"The Democrats have declared war in a lusty,
aggressive way upon all that is good and natural, all that is
pro-family, all that is moral," he laments, "and they are just
socking it to the pro-family citizens of California."
SB 1172 is among the measures. It prevents minors from receiving
counseling if they are struggling with homosexuality. It bans the
from "gay"-to-straight or "conversion therapy," as Democrats claim
the practice is "destructive" for children. Another bill (AB 1856)
further requires foster parents to undergo "gender sensitivity
training." Author Ted Lieu (D) says the intent of SB 1172 is to
curb parental rights, because he does not want parents "harming"
their children. (Listen to audio report)
But as Thomasson points out, Lieu and the Assembly Democrats who
backed this measure are overlooking something.
"How dare these Democrat politicians deny essential care to
children who've been raped or molested by a perpetrator. How dare
the Democrats rob parents of their God-given right to pursue
healing for their traumatized child," he comments. "It's absolutely
wrong to withhold emotional, mental, and physical help from a child
who has been raped or molested, and as a result of this physical,
mental, and emotional exploitation, is often confused about his or
her sexual identity."
Democrats also approved a resolution honoring late homosexual
activist Harvey Milk and passed a bill that would eventually give
way to "gay marriage."
