2006 VA General Assembly Wrap-Up on Sexual Orientation Issues

2006 General Assembly Wrap-Up on Sexual Orientation Issues

4/10/2006 By Linda Wall

Virginians can breathe a sigh of relief because all legislation pertaining to “sexual orientation” was defeated. A deliberate plan to force Virginians to accept homosexuality was implemented by “sexual orientation” activists. Former Governor Warner and Governor Kaine participated on the scheme to make homosexuality a protected class with special rights.

It was as if an invisible “wall of Jericho” had been erected almost overnight around Virginia and the future looked bleak. Warner laid the foundation for the wall when he hijacked a section of the budget to use it as a vehicle and tried to legislate through the budget. He placed language in the budget that would give individuals special protection in hiring and firing in state agencies based upon “sexual orientation.” Governor Kaine built the remainder of the wall on the day of his inauguration as he issued his first Executive Order adding sexual orientation to the list of protected classes under the Commonwealth’s nondiscrimination policy. Chosen legislators put the gate in place with proposed laws that would open the door to Virginia becoming the next Massachusetts or California concerning “sexual orientation” issues.

God, however, had another plan. His miracles and mercy went before us, and through much prayer, many phone calls, e-mail alerts, petitions and face-to-face lobbying with legislators by a team of concerned citizens, the walls came tumbling down. All attempts to advance the homosexual agenda failed, and Virginia is safe for another year.

The Walls Tumbled Down

· Budget Language Defeat – Family-friendly legislators in the House and the Senate introduced amendments that successfully removed “sexual orientation” from the state budget.

· Pro-Sexual Orientation Legislation Defeated in House – HB 1373 would have allowed counties to add “sexual orientation” as a protective class and HB 1552 would have added “sexual orientation” as a protective class in housing practices. Both bills were defeated in committee.

· Pro-Homosexual Orientation Legislation Defeated in Senate – SB 673 would have allowed all self-insured entities, public and private, to cover same-sex couples with insurance benefits. SB 700 would have required all state, local and public school employees to hire homosexuals and transsexuals. The insurance bill passed the full Senate but was defeated in a House committee and the sexual orientation hiring bill was killed in a Senate committee.

· Executive Order – Attorney General Bob McDonnell released an official opinion stating that the executive order making sexual orientation a protected employment class within state government was unconstitutional because changing public policy is the purview of the General Assembly. He was only able to make that assertion after all of the pro-homosexual legislation was defeated in the General Assembly.

(NOTE: Governor Kaine said he would ignore Attorney General McDonnell’s six-page opinion.)

Taking Back the Land by Becoming Pro-active

· Banning Same-Sex Marriages – The Senate and the House of Delegates passed the proposed Marriage Amendment handily. Both chambers also passed the legislation, which will place the Amendment on the ballot in November 2006. This bill now goes before the Governor for approval.

The Marriage Amendment, if enacted by the voters in November, will also ban civil unions in the State of Virginia, and ban recognition of civil unions or same sex marriages created in other states.

· Removing Homosexuals Clubs From Public Schools – Legislation giving schools the authority to prevent homosexual clubs from meeting on school grounds failed in the Senate Health and Education Committee after passing the full House 70 to 29 this year. However, it was a step in the right direction to eliminating the 64 Gay Straight Alliances, “sexual orientation” clubs, presently in Virginia’s schools.

The Next Battle

“Sexual orientation” activists will be back in 2007. They are relentless and committed to the advancement of an agenda that will ultimately destroy marriage and thus the society that supports our state and nation. Meanwhile, homosexual activists will use the marriage amendment to assert they are discriminated against and denied the joys of marriage. We must contend for the faith, “fight the fight” and occupy until Jesus returns. Every believer must choose who they will serve on this issue: the Lord or Satan. More saints must rise to the occasion and stand for righteousness by getting involved in this cultural war. Contact Concerned Women for America of Virginia today and take an active role.

It's just unbelievable that there is a need for legislation in this matter.

I'm a resident and I wouldn't give two cents for the future of the Old Dominion under this kind of legal rule.

There are some things for which riches do not compensate.

Take it back. I misread the thing hurriedly. God hep us.

If it was permanently averted we may be saved except that No VA doesn't act as though any of it was defeated. What is practised is quite another matter up here.

It will be nice when we can all breathe a sigh of relief when ALL the propaganda efforts are eventually kicked to the curb. The Protection of Marriage Constitutional Amendment is a good first step. Supreme Court reality based rulings and corrections to erroneous delusional premised rulings will eventually come...

They are indeed driven. And those of us on the side of natural law must be courageous and fearless and energized.

Is this real??

It's truly very disturbing, because there's so much in there that I recognise as being genuinely true and real in the way so many homosexuals think.

Pass it on to all your email contacts as well as newspapers whenever you get a chance to comment on the issue. Gay PR is like Dems PR -- very good. But we need to be persistent just like they are.

The good news is "Change is Possible" -- we need to let our youth/society know they do have an option for the unwanted/disordered state of same sex attraction.
