MORE HOMOSEXUAL POLITICIANS REVEAL NEW FACE OF DEMOCRATIC PARTY Laird, Leno Are First Openly Gay California State Assemblymen
Sacramento Two homosexual men have become the first openly gay assemblymen in the California State Legislature. At a State Capitol ceremony on Monday, John Laird of Santa Cruz and Mark Leno of San Francisco were sworn in as the first male homosexual legislators in California history.
The Democratic Party should rename itself the homosexual drag queen party, because thats what it has become in recent years, said Randy Thomasson, executive director of Campaign for California Families, a statewide nonprofit, nonpartisan family issues leadership organization. Sadly, the radical gay activists are intent upon taking away the rights of average citizens. More homosexual activists as politicians mean more attacks on the sanctity of marriage, religious freedom, parental rights and the Boy Scouts.
Increasing the self-proclaimed Lavender Caucus to five members, Laird and Leno join three previously-elected lesbian activist legislators: Jackie Goldberg of Los Angeles (Assembly), Christine Kehoe of San Diego (Assembly) and Sheila James Kuehl of Santa Monica (state Senate).
In recent years, the California Democratic Party (CDP) has become a loud advocate of homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality. Since 1999, Democrat state legislators have passed, and Governor Gray Davis has signed, more than 15 bills promoting the gay and transsexual agenda. Both the California Democratic Party and numerous California state and federal Democratic politicians opposed the Protection of Marriage Initiative (Proposition 22) on the March 2000 ballot. That same year, at the Democratic Partys national convention in Los Angeles, many party members booed the Boy Scouts for being allowed to lead the Pledge of Allegiance.
In April 2001, the CDP passed a resolution officially supporting civil unions or Vermont-style homosexual marriage. In October 2001, Governor Gray Davis signed legislation awarding more than a dozen rights of marriage to homosexual domestic partners. During the recently-concluded 2002 election, Art Torres, the chairman of the California Democratic Party, tried to force the removal of a radio ad which educated listeners about the gay agenda targeting schoolchildren.
The homosexual and transsexual activists have hijacked the California Democratic Party and programmed the minds of Democrat legislators to push and promote their radical agenda, even to the point of overturning the peoples vote on marriage," Thomasson said. More homosexual legislators will mean more of their special interest agenda. This is bad news for the rights of parents and average citizens.

I don't like discrimination, either. California has just gone off the deep end; that's all.
40 of our 58 counties voted for Bill Simon. The people of Los Angeles, Alameda & San Francisco counties rule the entire state.
You tell me.
If gays didn't...
Beat up on the Boy Scouts of America
Assault the institution of marriage
Hold pornographic parades
Claim special protected citizenship for themselves...
I guess I wouldn't give a damn, either. Call it bigotry if you like. (I puke when I hear what some people like to do with sheep.)
