Gov. Schwarzenegger vetoes three sexual indoctrination bills
Sept. 29, 2006 - California Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed three bills pushed forward by homosexual activists in the state's lawmaking body this year. This is considered a victory for California families, but the governor said his actions were based on the cost to the government. The three bills were SB 1437, AB 606 and AB 1056.
- However, family groups remained concerned that Schwarzenegger on Aug. 28 signed SB 1441, which will force religious colleges – if a single student is attending on a state grant – to promote transexuality, bisexuality and homosexuality.

Oppose sexual indoctrination in schools!
May 22, 2006 - Campaign for Children and Families explain the urgency of new bills from California's legislature. They can only be stopped by the Governor's veto.
If approved, these California bills will turn our schools into trans-bi-homosexual indoctrination centers! Textbooks will present examples of people with non-traditional sexual orientations as heroic figures.
- SB 1437, AB 606, and AB 1056 would force California public schools, from grades as young as kindergarten, to teach normal children to think of themselves as possibly transsexual, bisexual, or homosexual, and to experiment with this risky behavior.

California State Assembly Barely Passes Homosexual Marriage Bill in Late Night Session
Sept. 6, 2005 - Traditional Values Coalition reports:
This bill, already approved by the state Senate, is an affront to the will of the people of California. Proposition 22 was passed in March of 2000, stipulating that “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” 61.4% of California voters were in favor of this measure. 101 out of 120 legislative districts voted in favor of Prop 22.
- The California State Assembly voted 41 to 36, the bear minimum number needed for passage, to pass Assembly Bill 849, by homosexual Assemblyman Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), a bill that would strike references to “male” and “female” in the marriage code and would instead add the phrase “two persons” to the definition of marriage thereby allowing two men or two women to marry.
The bill must still be signed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Benjamin Lopez, Lobbyist for Traditional Values Coalition (TVC), said:
- “Governor Schwarzenegger has made statements that the courts or people should decided this issue. Well, here is his chance to veto a bill brought to him, not by the people, but by radical activists who wish to impose their idea of family on the rest of California.”

'Gay marriage' bill defeated in California.; supporters say they'll try again Friday
June 3, 2005 - Homosexual activists in the California legislature have tried twice this week to legalize "gay marriage" in California. The second vote obtained 35 "yes" votes, all Democrats, but needed 41 to pass. They will try again today to force the bill through the legislature.
The idea that the bill would be unconstitutional is based on the fact that the California state constitution prohibits the legislature from overriding a voter-backed initiative.
- Opponents say the bill violates both the will of the people and the California constitution. In 2000 California voters passed an initiative -- Proposition 22 -- explicitly banning "gay marriage." It passed by a margin of 61-39 percent.
