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.

Calif. court halts S.F. gay marriages

Mar. 11, 2004 - The California Supreme Court ordered an immediate stop to homosexual weddings in the state, pending a review on whether or not such marriages are permitted by state law. A ruling on the matter may be expected in June or July.

Calif. Supreme Court Won't Stop Gay Marriages

Feb. 27, 2004 - California Attorney General Bill Lockyer asked the California Supreme Court to stop the flood of homosexual marriages while they consider the legality of the marriages.

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.
[Governor] Schwarzenegger ordered Lockyer on Friday to "take immediate steps" to get a court ruling to make the city stop the gay weddings.
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,
"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."
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.

“Domestic Partner” Bill Threatens Seventh-day Adventist [and Other Churches]
Aug. 28, 2002 - You can sign a petition to try to stop this bill, which has passed the state Senate narrowly, and now goes to the Assembly.

Homosexual Lobby Wins Big In California
Aug. 5, 2002 - Two bills that assist the homosexual cause are expected to be approved by the Senate and signed into law soon in California. AB 1080 provides that any business entering into a contract with the state of California would be required to offer domestic-partner benefits equal to those offered to married spouses.
AB 2651 would require all foster parents would be required to attend "sensitivity training," and will force them to affirm the sexual choices of the children in their care.
Homosexual couples would be given priority as potential foster parents, while parents with religious convictions could be eliminated from the system...

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."

Democrats Kill Bill Prohibiting The Promotion of Homosexuality in Public Schools
Jan. 18, 2002 - Pro-Family organizations argued in favo r of a California bill (AB1326) that would have prohibited the promotion of homosexuality in public schools. The Assembly Education Committee heard evidence that some current materials in California schools actually promote homosexual “licking,” “fisting,” and directs children to homosexual porn sites on the Internet.
The Democrat majority on the Committee killed the bill without discussion.

Cautious Victory: California "Homosexual Marriage" Bill Removed
Jan. 16, 2001 - Capitol Resource Institute announces that AB 1338 has been pulled from the Assembly Judiciary Committee. Christians must remain on guard because it could be reintroduced at any time.
This bill attempts to legalize "civil unions" in California. According to Paul Koetz (the author of the bill), AB 1338 will affect over 1500 laws that currently apply only to marriage and will give homosexual couples the same status as married couples.

Jan 15, 2002 - Article by Patrick Buchannan about Callifornia bill AB 1338, which would extend all the benefits of marriage to homosexual "civil unions." In this state, 61 percent of the electorate approved Proposition 22 in 2000, which affirmed that marriage is a union between one man and one woman? Yet today, apathetic Californians are about to allow a huge set-back for morality by letting their legislators pass this bill.

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. See the following sites for contact information:

Don't Ignore The Other War (The Cultural War)
Sept. 17, 2001 - Typically, when the nation is distracted by major news stories, anti-Christian lawmakers make great progress with their agendas.
From Capitol Resource Institute, we have this reminder about the progress of AB 25 - a domestic parners bill that will expand benefits to them now reserved for married couples.
It is no secret that gay activists are incrementally trying to overturn the will of the people in passing Prop. 22 last year. If AB 25 becomes law, the next step will be the passage of AB 1338 (civil unions) next year." Contact Gov. Gray Davis and urge him to veto AB 25 to protect traditional marriage. (contact info below)
Action Needed to Stop AB 25 -- The bill is now on Governor Gray Davis' desk. He can do one of three things: Sign the bill into law, do nothing and allow it to become law, or veto the bill. Please call and tell him to veto the bill.

California's Homosexual Agenda Bills
June 11, 2001 - Review of the current flood of bills being considered by the California legislature. Little by little, these carefully worded measures undermine the will of the people who passed Prop. 22 a year ago against homosexual marriage.

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 a marriage.
"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.
"It appears Assemblyman Koretz is trying to circumvent Proposition 22," Knight said. "It may be illegal. If that doesn't undermine marriage, I don't know what does."
The bill is called the California Family Protection Act.

Students 'opting out' of homosexual class
Jan. 3, 2001 - California students may obtain help in the process of opting out of new classes that teach that homosexuality is normal, The new curriculum is a result of two laws passed last year.
The Pacific Justice Institute provides a form for this purpose that cites four sections of the state's education code that allow parents to "opt" their children out of participation in programs and instruction generated as a result of the new laws, as well as previously existing programs.
Pacific Justice Institute is also offering free emergency legal counsel to all parents having questions about the issue.

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.
"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 dinner in Los Angeles.
A spokesman for the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay and lesbian political group said:
"This is definitely the most important piece of legislation affecting gay and lesbian students to have passed in this country."

Urgent: Ask California Governor Davis not to sign homosexual bills!
Sept. 16, 1999 - Five pro-homosexual bills have passed the California legislature on slim margins, and now go to Governor Gray Davis for signing. Recent indications are that the governor does not want to be labeled "liberal," so it is worthwhile to phone his office to oppose these bills. Source: Capitol Resource Institute (phone numbers listed).
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 Education Codes.
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 thereof. 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 and conservatorships.

AB222 Ammended
June 2, 1999 - Some deletions were made to the proposed law, probably making it acceptable to some borderline legislators, but still providing for special protection for "actual or perceived heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality." The following sections were deleted from the bill:
SEC. 14. Section 51500 of the Education Code is amended to read:
51500. No teacher shall give instruction nor shall a school district sponsor any activity that reflects adversely upon persons because of any of the following characteristics, whether actual or perceived: race, sex, sexual orientation, color, creed, disability, national origin, or ancestry.
SEC. 15. Section 51501 of the Education Code is amended to read:
51501. No textbook or other instructional materials shall be adopted by the state board or by any governing board for use in the public schools which contains any matter reflecting adversely upon persons on the basis of any of the following characteristics, whether actual or perceived: race, sex, sexual orientation, color, creed, disability, national origin, or ancestry.
SEC. 16. Section 60044 of the Education Code is amended to read:
60044. No instructional materials shall be adopted by any governing board for use in the schools which, in its determination, contains:
(a) Any matter reflecting adversely upon persons on the basis of any of the following characteristics, whether actual or perceived: race, color, creed, national origin, ancestry, sex, sexual orientation, disability, or occupation.
(b) Any sectarian or denominational doctrine or propaganda contrary to law.

Soto To Oppose Gay Rights Bill
May 28, 1999 - Assemblywoman Nell Soto, who represents Pomona and surrounding cities, abstained from voting when the bill was in committee, but, after studying it carefully, and hearing from both sides, she has decided to vote against AB 222.
The Daily Bulletin quoted Rebecca Nieto, her chief of staff that ultimately Soto relied on her conscience.
"She has studied it long and been fair. She believes anti-discrimination laws are adequate at this time."

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.

May 5, 1999 - Warning from the United States Justice Foundation that if this bill passes, all perversions will be protected under the civil rights guise of "sexual preference," including bestiality, pedophilia, and others. In addition, sacred texts, now allowed as literature, but not to teach religion, such as the Bible, The Torah, and The Koran, could be banned because they teach that homosexuality is wrong.

WARNING! Homosexual Bill (AB 222) Approved in Committee
April 8, 1999 - This bill, which will grant special rights for homosexuals and bisexuals (and make it illegal to speak against this behavior in public and private schools) passed in the Assembly Education Committee (10-7). Nell Soto abstained. Now the measure will go to the Assembly floor. Will Bible believing Christians raise their voices sufficiently to defeat this, or will we just watch, while Biblical values are trampled?

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 financial aid.
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 Oppose Homosexuality 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.
