Posted on 10/06/2017 12:06:05 PM PDT by ForYourChildren
California can now start jailing people that refuse to use the preferred gender pronouns of nursing home residents after Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill Thursday.
The laws effect is limited to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, but mandates that those who willfully and repeatedly refuse to use a transgender residents preferred name or pronouns can be slapped with a $1,000 fine and up to one year in prison, according to the California Heath and Safety code.
Known as the LGBT Senior Bill Of Rights, the legislation also requires nursing homes and care facilities to allow residents to use the bathroom of their choice, regardless of biological sex. The bills author, state Sen. Scott Weiner, argues that religious views dont hold weight in public areas.
Everyone is entitled to their religious view, Wiener said. But when you enter the public space, when you are running an institution, you are in a workplace, you are in a civil setting, and you have to follow the law.
Wiener also released a statement thanking Brown for signing the bill.

This won’t end at nursing homes.
They have set up precedence for this type of law.
It will go all the way, everywhere, anyone.
What about the 80 year old lady who doesn’t WANT some old guys using the women’s restroom? Doesn’t she have any rights?
I can’t wait until someone is sentenced to prison on this law, and appeals the conviction to the SCOTUS.
Clear violation of the 1st Amendment right to free speech.
But when you enter the public space, when you are running an institution, you are in a workplace, you are in a civil setting, and you have to follow the law.
unless we’re talking about illegal immigration
Forcing someone to use a certain form of speech: how is this not unconstitutional?
Mine is “Your highest lordship, majestic el Heffe”
Refuse to use it and I will send you to JAIL!
to use a transgender residents preferred name or pronouns
Lunacy on the hoof.
Welcome to the Hotel Kalifornia.
“Known as the LGBT Senior Bill Of Rights,
also known as the “Forcing Sane People to Say Insane and Untrue Things” bill.
‘WHATEVER’ works for me.
There are several problem with this law. It’s been fought at the supreme Court level that people do NOT loose their civil rights when they walk through the doors of an institution. Jay Seculow won the cases where religious rights were being nullified by state schools. Furthermore, the
Federal Attorney General declared only yesterday that employment anti discrimination laws in the work place don’t apply to trans genders in the workplace.
I do hope action is taken against this law because the civil Rights of all are being improperly nullified for the preference of a few. Reverse discrimination.
It's clearly a violation of the first amendment. Another's delusion does not dictate my reality.
Well, you can’t destroy the 2nd amendment without destroying the 1st. And these people won’t stop until both are gone!
THX1138 or what?
I’m just glad there are no pressing issues here in CA for the legislature and governor to deal with so they can spend time keeping us safe with laws like this.....
Presicely why there is a second ammendment.
The only reason any of this stands - the sexual orientation, gender identity discrimination - is due to one executive order amendment 13087 that must be undone.
