Calif. judge hears gay marriage arguments
Dec. 23, 2004 - A San Franciso judge presided over a pair of lawsuits Wednesday that seek to have California’s one-man, one-woman matrimony law declared unconstitutional. The suit originated with the actions of San Francisco's mayor ten month ago when he performed marriages for numerous homosexual couples before the court system stopped him on the grounds of California's recent initiative that defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. That state law will be examined in this case to determine if it is constitutional. Whatever the decision of this court, observers expect the case to be appealed, rising eventually to the state Supreme Court before it is settled.

Bush Backs Amendment Barring Gay Marriage
Feb. 24, 2004 - President Bush referred to recent decisions by judicial activists and civil disobedience in California resulting in thousands of illegal homosexual marriages. He called for an ammendment to the Federal Constitution that would prohibit such unions. He said:
- The union of man and woman is the most enduring human institution, honored and encouraged in all cultures and by every religious faith. Marriage cannot be severed from its cultural, religious or natural roots without weakening the good influence of society today.

Gay marriage issue goes to California high court
Feb. 24, 2004 - California Attorney General Bill Lockyer has been slow to move against the civil disobedience in San Francisco where more than 3,200 same-sex couples have been married since Feb. 12 even though the state has a law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman.
The Attorney General says that this Friday he will ask the state Supreme Court to try to resolve the deeply divisive issue.

California legislators pass 'homosexual marriage lite'
Sept. 4, 2003 - The California State Assembly has passed AB205 with Sentate ammendments, thereby approving the closest thing to homosexual marriage, and repudiating the will of the people, who approved Proposition 22, a 2000 ballot measure that defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman. Governor Gray Davis has said he will sign the measure.
California Senate OKs 'virtual gay marriage'
Aug. 29, 2003 - California bill AB205, the Domestic Partner Rights and Responsibilities Act, passed a Senate vote yesterday, and now goes back to the Assembly for approval of ammendments made by the Senate.
- [Governor Gray] Davis, who faces an Oct. 7 recall election, has promised to sign the bill, but opponents call it a virtual establishment of "gay marriage," contending it dismisses the will of Californians who passed Proposition 22 in 2000, which defined marriage as only between a man and a woman.
Davis to OK rights for same-sex couples
Aug. 18, 2003 - If the California Senate passes a domestic partners bill, which has already been approved by the Assembly, Governor Gray Davis says he will sign it. The bill has been long-awaited by California's 100,000 homosexual couples (one-sixth of the nation's total). Front-runner in the California recall effort, Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante, has also pledged support for the bill. Republican top-contender, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is a self-described supporter of gay rights but he has not yet taken a position on the bill.
- Randy Thomasson, executive director of Campaign for California Families, says that the measure is essentially a homosexual marriage bill.
- He said it would be challenged in court under Proposition 22, the ballot measure approved by California voters in 2000 that prohibited state recognition of same-sex marriage.

California Assembly Passes 'Gay Marriage' Bill
June 7, 2003 - The California Assembly has passed AB205, which says,
According to Randy Thomasson, executive director of the Campaign for California Families, the bill effectively reverses Proposition 22, the Protection of Marriage Initiative, passed three years ago by 61 percent of California voters. Proposition 22 said that marriage was the union of one man and one woman.
- "registered domestic partners shall have the same rights, protections, and benefits, and shall be subject to the same responsibilities, obligations, and duties under law as are granted to and imposed upon spouses."

Lawmakers 'sanction' use of district-approved 'porn'
- Jan. 25, 2002 - More information about Legislative bill AB 1326: This bill was introduced by California Assemblyman Dennis Mountjoy, from Monrovia. It was dismissed without discussion by the Assembly Education Committee last week. The bill would have stopped the kind of promotion of gay and lesbian activity observed in the Los Angeles Unified School District. The LAUSD uses sexually explicit materials promoting homosexuality under the guise of conforming to the new California Student Safety and Violence Prevention Act of 2000. The objectionable material includes instructions on homosexual sodomy and a glorified account of lesbian pedophilia. It publishes a recommended reading list for children including "Young, Gay & Proud," "One Teenager In 10: Writings by Gay & Lesbian Youth" and "Homophobia as Child Abuse."

Californians: Ask Governor Davis to Veto Homosexual Couples Bill
- Oct. 8, 2001 - The state legislature has passed AB25, which grants 12 special legal rights to homosexual couples. This dangerous bill is a clear effort to thwart the will of the California people who voted overwhelmingly last year in support of traditional marriage through Proposition 22. We all need to ask the governor to veto this bill.

More benefits for California homosexuals
- Mar. 26, 2001 - Julie Foster reveals the next step of the powerful homosexual agenda in the California Legislature. Undaunted by the will of the people, expressed in Proposition 22 (California Protection of Marriage Initiative), the Democrat-controlled legislature is in the process of expanding benefits for homosexuals that would make such relationships "legally indistinguishable" from heterosexual marriages. The two measures are Assembly Bills AB 25 and AB 1338
- Introduced on Feb. 23 by freshman Democrat
Paul Koretz of West Hollywood, AB 1338 is
modeled after Vermont's civil union law, which
made headlines almost 18 months ago. Section
1(a) of the bill spells out the measure's intent in
no uncertain terms:
- "It is the intent of the Legislature that there shall
be no distinction between the rights, privileges,
and responsibilities of the parties to a marriage
and those of the parties to a civil union, that
marriages and civil unions shall be deemed
legally indistinguishable, and that the parties to
a civil union have all of the same benefits,
protections, and responsibilities under law,
whether derived from statute, administrative or
court rule, policy, common law, or any other
source of civil law, as are granted to spouses in
- "It is the further intent of the Legislature that
this act shall be construed broadly to equalize
civil union and civil marriage under all
applicable laws of any jurisdiction that may
affect or govern the rights of married persons in
every other state, the District of Columbia, the
United States, and any foreign country, to the
fullest extent of applicable law, including the
Constitution of the United States and the
California Constitution, to the end that no party
to a civil union shall be treated any differently
than a married person as to his or her rights,
benefits, and responsibilities under the laws of
every jurisdiction that recognizes and accords
rights, benefits, and responsibilities to a person
who has been married or whose marriage had
been recognized under California law."

Bill Seeks To Ratify Same-Sex Unions
- Mar. 2, 2001 - California Assemblyman Paul Koretz, D- West Hollywood, has introduced a bill similar to Vermont's controversial law, making homosexual unions "legally indistinguishable" from heterosexual marriage.
- While Koretz said he believes the bill, introduced
last week, will comply with last year's Proposition
22 -- which banned gay marriage and passed with
62 percent of the vote -- state Sen. William "Pete"
Knight, R-Palmdale, the author of that initiative,
blasted Koretz's bill.

circumvent Proposition 22," Knight said. "It may be

Calif. governor signs landmark gay rights laws
- Oct. 3, 1999 - Governor Gray Davis signed three [of the five pending] pro-homosexual bills allowing a statewide registry for domestic partnerships, adding sexual orientation as a basis against discrimination in employment or housing, and granting special protection for homosexual students and teachers in California public schools.
A spokesman for the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay and lesbian political group said:
- "I refuse to allow hatred and ignorance to taint our
schools, our classrooms and our children," Davis said in
remarks prepared for delivery Saturday at a gay rights

- AB 26 , Migden
- Topic: Domestic partners.
This bill would create same-sex “domestic partners” registries in all 58
counties. AB 26 awards official government status and quasi-marriage
benefits to same-sex couples. The bill would also require taxpayers to
fund spousal-equivalent recognition and benefits for “partners” of state
employees if state and local government agencies include “domestic
partner” in their definition of “family member.” The bill requires
hospitals to allow “partners” to visit each other, but this is irrelevant
since hospitals already have very open visitation policies.
- AB 537 , Kuehl
- Topic: Putting “Sexual Orientation” into the Public Schools
AB 537 (Kuehl) would insert “sexual orientation” (found in Penal Code
Section 422.6) into the Education Code which governs more than five
million children in California public schools. The bill does not define
“sexual orientation,” so the sky is the limit. Because the bill bars
discrimination in “any program or activity conducted by an education
institution,” this means school districts could not refuse to hire and
could not dismiss a teacher who is inclined toward homosexuality,
bisexuality, transvestitism, or transsexualism. Because Boy Scouts are
not exempt from Section 200 of the Education Code, this part of the bill
could be used to bar Boy Scouts from accessing campus facilities.
Because the bill is vague in its protection of private religious schools
and colleges, it is opposed by the Association of Christian Schools
International. Finally, AB 537 is unnecessary to prohibit violence,
harassment and intimidation of homosexuals in the schools because
current law already prohibits this conduct in the Penal, Civil, and
- AB 1001 , Villaraigosa
- Topic: Tax-Funded Investigations and Fines Against Citizens of
Conscience, and Promoting Homosexuality in the Public Schools.
This bill would award official minority status to homosexuality and
bisexuality by elevating “sexual orientation” to the same level as race
and ethnicity in the powerful Fair Employment and Housing Act
(FEHA). This means tax-funded investigations and combined fines and
damages up to $50,000 or more against property owners, business
owners, the Boy Scouts, Bible bookstores, religious radio stations, and
even some churches, that are opposed to homosexuality. Also, by
declaring “sexual orientation” to be an official “civil right,” children in
public schools would be taught to approve of homosexuality and the
homosexual political movement (see Education Code, Section 51226.3).
- AB 1670 , Committee on Judiciary
- Topic: (California Civil Rights Amendments of 1999) Tax-Funded
Investigations and Fines Against Citizens of Conscience, and
Promoting Homosexuality in the Public Schools.
- Similar to AB 1001, AB 1670 would use indirect means to insert “sexual
orientation” into FEHA and the two bills would have similar impact upon
schoolchildren and citizens of conscience. AB 1670 declares as a civil
right “any other basis prohibited by Section 51 of the Civil Code.” This
is a simple matter of connecting the dots. California courts have used
judicial fiat to make case law placing “sexual orientation” into Civil Code
51, otherwise known as the Unruh Civil Rights Act. Thus, the courts
have inserted sexual orientation (homosexuality and bisexuality) into
Civil Code 51, and AB 1670 inserts Civil Code 51 into FEHA in regards to
housing. This bill would result in tax-funded investigations and fines
against citizens of conscience, and the promotion of homosexuality and
bisexuality to children in public schools under the guise of civil rights.
- In addition, AB 1670 would allow state investigations, and fines and
damages of $150,000 against persons of conscience who refuse to
support homosexuality in the area of housing and rental property. The
bill would fund expert witness fees, which would pay for gay activists to
persecute citizens in court. AB 1670 would also subject workplace
supervisors to vague harassment laws. In addition, by indirectly
declaring “sexual orientation” to be a civil right, the courts would be
handed another tool that could be used against citizens of conscience.
- SB 75 , Murray
- Topic: Domestic partnership: registration, termination, and rights
This bill essentially accomplishes the same result as AB 26 by creating a
statewide “domestic partners” registry. SB 75 would also change the law
to equate “domestic partners” with married spouse in the areas of wills

Time To Weigh In On Homosexual Bill AB 222
- May 26, 1999 - AB 222 will come to vote on the California Assembly floor within the next few days. There are supposedly 40 supporters of the bill at the present time, and they need 41. There are several who may go either direction. Do not underestimate the value of your phone, FAX or email input to your own legislators AND to those who are considered to be swing votes.
It might be best to contact the legislators who are special targets of the author of the bill. See Action Alerts from Sheila Kuehl's office at the bill's website.
- Check with your own Assemblyperson and Senator to see how they are planning to vote. Let them know that you realize they think this is a civil rights issue, that you are also opposed to discrimination against anyone because of their beliefs, but that if this bill becomes law, it will be the Bible-believing Christians who will lose their First Ammendment rights to even lovingly oppose homosexual behavior even though we are required to do so by our Sacred Scriptures. The Homosexual life-style will be taught as normal, and it will be against the law for anyone in the schools setting to disagree with it.

California Homosexual Agenda
- MARCH, 1999 - Focus on the Family alerts California citizens:
- The homosexual agenda is raging in the California legislature, but
there is hope if concerned citizens do their part and get involved.
Anti-family legislators have introduced bills to push homosexuality
on all parts of society and penalize citizens who are morally
opposed to homosexual behavior. Committee votes will begin in
late March or early April on the following bills:
AB=Assembly Bill, SB=Senate Bill
(Sponsor name in parenthesis)
AB 222 (Kuehl) and SB 1260 (Hayden):
Promoting Homosexuality and Bisexuality to Schoolchildren
AB 222 would result in homosexual curriculum and promotion of
homosexual “marriage” to students in K-12 public schools, public
colleges and universities. Quotas for homosexual instructors
would be indirectly pursued, and federal “hate crime” funds would
be used to punish schools that resist the gay agenda.
If AB 222 passes, religious schools who do not comply could be
banned from interscholastic sports leagues, and students at
religious colleges could be prohibited from receiving state
A second bill, SB 1260, would require homosexual curriculum to
be taught to schoolchildren as young as kindergarten, including
mandated sessions on “homophobia.”
AB 1001 (Villaraigosa):
Tax-funded Investigations and Fines Against Citizens Who
AB 1001 awards official minority status for homosexuality and
bisexuality, putting “sexual orientation” on the same level as race
and ethnicity in the powerful Fair Employment and Housing Act
(FEHA). This could result in tax-funded investigations and
$25,000 fines against property owners, business owners, Bible
bookstores, religious radio stations, and even some churches
that oppose homosexuality. Also, because this bill declares
homosexuality or bisexuality to be an official “civil right,” if
passed, children in public schools will be taught all about the
homosexual political movement.
Homosexual Marriage “Partnership” Bills
Four bills would create homosexual-marriage “partnerships” to
award official government status and marriage benefits to
homosexuals; AB 26 (Migden), AB 107 (Knox), SB 75 (Murray),
and SB 118 (Hayden). These “domestic partners” bills would
undermine the sacred institution of marriage and promote
same-sex “marriage” (95% of “domestic partners” are
homosexuals). If these bills pass, it will be more difficult to legally
protect California from homosexual “marriage” and its
accompanying negative consequences.
