A pro-family leader isn't surprised California's governor has received high honors from a large pro-homosexual group for being on "the cutting edge" of the decades-long LGBT push for "equality."

California's largest LGBT advocacy group, Equality California, presented Governor Jerry Brown an award on Monday for advancing homosexual rights during his governorship. Brown, a Democrat, received the group's leadership award for appointing the nation's first homosexual judge and for being the first politician to "openly, powerfully, and compellingly embrace gay rights."

Dr. Scott Lively of Defend the Family tells OneNewsNow the Golden State is under the control of a very small, but very vocal minority.

"This tiny group of probably less than two percent of the population of California has clearly taken control of the Democratic Party, which means they are in control of the state of California," he says. Democrats hold large majorities in both state houses – 28 to 11 in the Senate, and 55 to 25 in the Assembly.

"Governor Brown is just privy and part of this campaign to advance the homosexual movement at the expense of Christianity," adds Lively.

The Democratic governor was also selected for the award for signing pro-gay legislation into law, including the passage of a law that allows students to select sex-segregated facilities and activities based on the gender they choose.

Brown told attendees that Equality California has been a strong proponent of homosexual rights and compared the LGBT movement to the immigration rights movement.
