MORE HOMOSEXUAL POLITICIANS REVEAL NEW FACE OF DEMOCRATIC PARTY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FROM CAMPAIGN FOR CALIFORNIA FAMILIES www.savecalifornia.com

December 3, 2002

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 that’s 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 Party’s 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 people’s 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.”

You know what your drag name is, don't you? It's the name of your pet when you were growing up and your mother's maiden name.

And if that doesn't work, there's always:

Sofonda Peters
Helen Bed
Summer Clearance
Anita Mann
Sharon Cox
Anita Douche
Charity Case, and, of course

Ladies and Gentleman, for your listening pleasure, please welcome to the stage, Ms. Connie Lingus.

40 of our 58 counties voted for Bill Simon. The people of Los Angeles, Alameda & San Francisco counties rule the entire state.

If Judaism's channeling of (predominantly) male sexuality into marriage was the anchor of Western civilzation (which I believe), then how does this sense of deviatiation not contribute to its decline?

If gays didn't...

Beat up on the Boy Scouts of America

Spread AIDS

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.)

I give a damn, as a former soldier as well. Got a problem with it?
By the by, I have an uncle who is gay, and he doesn't make it a point to do his "thing" in front of myself and children and say we have to accept it.

Illogical post. Men slap women on their backsides without their consent, and that doesn't make heterosexuality perverse.

Men and women have sex in the open, and that doesn't make heterosexuality perverse.

Rude & crude behavior goes on among and between all genders -- just turn on your TV or spend a weekend night downtown. Personally, I don't like it either, but that behavior is not a hetero- or homosexual problem, it's a good manners problem.

Mechanically, a man is not designed for another man. Man is designed for woman. You know, the puzzle piece analogy.

No, that's illegal, and yes that is perverse. I and no-one else has to acccept such behavior in public. Just like no-one has to accept gay's shoving their lifestyle in their faces and saying it's normal. It isn't. And it IS a choice.

The gays practice their brand of bigotry, and pawn it off as tolerance. And tehy are remarkably intolerant of anyone who doesn't agree with them. And no-one has to agree with them or accept it. Acceptance and agreement is not guaranteed by the constitution.

It could be worse...at least in California (for now) you still have a right to speak out against the homosexual lifestyle.

They won't even be able to do that in Pennsylvania before long.

So much for the First Amendment.

It's bigotry.

big-ot n. one obstinately and unreasonably wedded to a particular belief or creed; dogmatist. (emphasis mine)

It's not unreasonable to have a negative reaction when a group begins demanding special privileges and treatment based on their sexual choices - which should be private behavior. Homosexuals are trying to legislate societal approval. They deserve to be treated equally under the law. They do not deserve to force approval from others. Nobody does.

Disapproval of this agenda does not constitute bigotry as it is not remotely unreasonable.

These self-proclaimed Gay Caucus folks are servants to socialist interests of varying hues(red,green,black,lavender,...), all of which are more dangerous to America than their personal emotional disorders.

They should be scorned for their foolish politics, not for their taste in bed.

Bigotry? Hmmmm. As a matter of fact, if the B-F'rs kept their bedroom habits to themselves instead of attempting to shove it up all non-fag a$$es (a little B-F'r humor there - VERY little), I don't think there would be a problem.

I don't tell anyone else how to live, and I resent it when someone else tries to tell ME how to live. Note to B-F'rs: Keep your personal life personal (as in "private"), stop your poorly concealed proselyting through the public education system and by taking over the state capitols of nearly every state in the union, and "bigotry" would cease.

It's the B-F'rs, by definition, who are "backward" (more bad B-F'r humor), and who hate all the rest of the population which is NOT ignorant, as shown by the fact that they don't need deviant bedroom habits to define themselves!

Unfortunately, the two are linked.

My old unit had this to say about B-F-r's:
"We've been in this trench together for seven weeks. Does that mean we're married by commonlaw? I wanna hold your hand."

Usually said with a dead-pan face and followed up with :
"That wouldn't happen to be bordering Don't ask don't tell, now? Would it?"
Clinton, what a farce.

"Unfortunately, the two are linked."

True, but not in a necessary way.

Plenty of straight people hold perfectly idiotic and communistic ideas about all sorts of things that are matters of public policy.

It's not as if the gays are the only folks with dangerous and moronic views.

They can be defeated on public, political grounds, and that's the way to do it.

IMHO.

Yes, but the gays have their lifestyle an dtheir poitics linked so darn badly.
And they go to such ridiculous limits to try and get approval of their lifestyle and have it accepted.
And their form of acceptance means to be able to cram their lifestyle down everyone's throat, recruit children, and be an elevated protected political class.

I'm agreeing with you on the politics here. I'm just not sure it CAN be 'unlinked' due to the behaviors shown.
