Two self-admitted homosexual Democrat legislators are trying to make it the stateâ€™s official position to oppose the will of the people by Louis P. Sheldon
Homosexual activists are feeling a bit zealous these days. They are coming on the heels of a newly sworn in Barack Obama administration that saw the first ever homosexual band perform in a presidentâ€™s inauguration parade. They have a promise from Obama to repeal the ban on homosexuals serving in the US military. In addition, Hollywood elites and the liberal media are captivated with the pro-homosexual propaganda motion picture â€œMilkâ€. They are running on a rampage. This is especially true in the Golden State of California. Two self-admitted homosexual Democrat legislators are trying to make it the stateâ€™s official position to oppose Proposition 8. Prop 8 was the voter-approved constitutional amendment that declared â€œOnly marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.â€ This amendment passed with the support of over 7 million voters, which accounted for 52% of the vote on November 4, 2008. San Francisco State Senator Mark Leno has introduced Senate Resolution 7 and Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, also from San Francisco, has introduced House Resolution 5 in an attempt to overturn the voter-approved amendment protecting traditional marriage. Both resolutions have yet to be assigned to a committee for a hearing and vote. Supporters of Traditional Values Coalition should be pleased to know that we are actively defending Prop 8 in court.
Disgruntled homosexual radicals, who have lost twice at the ballot box, have once again challenged the traditional definition of marriage for one man and one woman and have filed lawsuits with the State Supreme Court to overturn Prop 8. On January 15th, Traditional Values Coalition Education and Legal Institute (our educational arm of TVC) issued an amicus brief in defense of Prop 8. TVC will continue defending the voters and their choice for traditional marriage. Leno will be the new chair of the Legislatureâ€™s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Caucus. He recently told the press that he thinks â€œit is very appropriate that the Legislature make a statement [against the voterâ€™s approving Prop 8].â€ WHAT CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS CAN DO: To express your continued support for Prop 8 and traditional marriage, contact your local State Senator and ask that they oppose Senate Resolution 7 (SR 7); authored by Senator Mark Leno. (Do not contact US Senators Diane Feinstein or Barbara Boxer about SR 7. They are United States Senators and do not address legislation in the state capitol. You must contact your State Senator) Also, contact your local State Assemblyman and ask that they oppose House Resolution 5 (HR 5); authored by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano. (Do not contact your US Congressman about HR 5. They are United States Representatives and do not address legislation in the state capitol. You must contact your State Assemblyman or woman)
