Californication: Where Evil Men Prevail...

The marketing of evil is (unfortunately) devastatingly alive and progressing in California. No wonder over 30,000 families (approx. from what I've read) have left this state over the last year !! A flurry of bad bills were passed in 2006 and signed into law by RINO Arnold. Read the following newsletter and mourn for our children here in Californication....

There is some interesting information about Gov. Arnold that I didn't know prior to reading the newsletter. Randy (the author) mentions voting him back into office as the "lesser of two evils." We shall see. He certainly doesn't appear to be a "lesser evil" to me!

I voted for Tom McClintock when Davis was recalled. He would have been a far better choice for pro-family conservative Christians. Now we are stuck with Arnold and the loonie left liberal Democrats in Sacramento.




News and commentary from Randy Thomasson

New faces, same spaces in Sacramento

The California Legislature -- controlled by the most pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality-bisexality-transsexuality Democrats in California history has gaveled itself to order. Following Wednesday's "welcome back floor session, most of the 120 state legislators now plan to attend Governor Schwarzenegger's inauguration on Friday. Then they'll spend the next two months rubbing shoulders with lobbyists and busying themselves introducing some 2,000 bills before the committee hearings and floor sessions get underway in March. While the November election produced new faces in Sacramento, unfair "gerrymandered" district boundaries mean the balance of power will stay exactly the same as before: 48 Democrats, 32 Republicans in the Assembly; 25 Democrats, 15 Republicans in the state Senate. Already 132 bills have been introduced, among them the two marriage-destroying bills, AB 43 and SB 11. Visit CCF's website for action steps

8 worst California laws for 2007

There are 910 new state laws that Californians have to live under. Because these laws were approved by a Democrat-controlled Legislature and signed by California's liberal Republican Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, many of these new California laws impose the sexual and anti-family agenda on the rest of us. Here are the eight worst laws you need to know about:

AB 1160 Promoting Transsexuality, Bisexuality, and Homosexuality to Jurors

This new law permits either side in a criminal trial or proceeding to request that the court instruct jurors not to allow their family values (i.e. their "bias") based on "gender identity" (transsexuality and transvestitism) or "sexual orientation" (homosexuality and bisexuality) to be part of their mindset.

AB 1207 Pro-Transsexual-Bisexual-Homosexual Campaign Pledge

This new law revises the voluntary candidate pledge, called the Code of Fair Campaign Practices, to prohibit a candidate's "negative prejudice" against "gender identity" (transsexuality and transvestitism) and "sexual orientation" (homosexuality and bisexuality).

AB 2051 Promoting Transsexual-Bisexual-Homosexual Relationships The effect of this new law is to "promote healthy non-violent relationships in the lesbian, gay bisexual, and transgender community" by requiring law enforcement and domestic violence councils to support and promote so-called "healthy" transsexual, bisexual, and homosexual relationships.

AB 2560 Promoting Condoms and Birth Control Pills to Schoolchildren

This new law sets up a unit within the State Department of Health Services with the purpose of retaining and expanding school-based "health centers." Unfortunately, these centers will distribute condoms, birth control pills, and refer for abortions, pro-homosexual counseling, and suicide counseling; all without parental knowledge or consent.

AB 2800 Transsexual-Bisexual-Homosexual Agenda in Housing Industry

This new law requires the promotion of transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality in housing and housing related areas, including real estate licensure, mortgage lending, club membership, development projects, and community redevelopment.

AB 2920 Transsexual-Bisexual-Homosexual Agenda for Seniors

This new law force California's Department of Aging (within the state's Health and Human Services Agency) to support and promote the "unique needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender seniors."

SB 1441 Threatening Religious Values of Christian Colleges

This new law awards sexual activists a legal hammer to persecute religious colleges that accept Cal Grant students and religious daycare centers that accept CalWORKS childcare vouchers. SB 1441 prohibits "discrimination" on the basis of transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality in "any program or activity"that receives financial assistance from the state. There is no religious exemption.

SB 1827 Completing Counterfeit Marriage

This new law requires California's income tax laws to equate homosexual partnerships with marriage between a husband and wife. Awarding homosexuals the last legal privilege of marriage under California law, SB 1827 requires registered "domestic partners" to file personal income tax returns as either "married filing jointly" or "married filing separate," setting up a direct conflict with federal law which recognizes marriage rights only for a man and a woman.

Minimum wage hike: California now has the fourth-highest minimum wage in the nation, $7.50 per hour. One year from now, we'll have the highest in the nation at $8 per hour. Unfortunately, you can count on this government socialism resulting in fewer jobs and more businesses moving out of the state.

Good laws:

Out of the 910 new laws, there are a few good ones, because even the pro-abortion, pro-sexual-license Democrats that control the California Legislature oppose vandalism and are shocked by children developing Type 2 diabetes:

Anti-vandalism: Anyone arrested for vandalism now will lose his driver's license for up to two years, not just one, like before now. And vandals who are 13 and 14 will have their drivers' licenses delayed an extra one to three years for their crimes.

School junk food: A handful of new laws will require schools to sell and serve more healthy foods and snacks and less junk food next school year than they do now. And the elementary school ban on soda-pop sales will be extended to high schools, meaning vending machines will contain more fruit-and-vegetable-based drinks. These laws won't go into full effect until July.

Telephone privacy: It is now illegal for businesses to buy or sell your telephone calling records without your permission.

Obscenity: A very small step in the right direction, a new law prohibits government employees from using state-owned or state-leased computers to view obscene material. However, so little falls under the state's definition of "obscene" that lots of addictive and dehumanizing pornography can still be viewed on California government computers. America has degraded significantly since the U.S. Supreme Court's 1947 Wegglo standard, which held that anything that causes lust was obscene (FYI, this is also Jesus' standard, who said to lust after a woman was to commit adultery with her in your heart). This was replaced in 1973 by the totally subjective Miller standard, which, in the last 36 years has been interpreted to allow possession of all kinds of obscenity and pornography, except child pornography, yet allows authorities to prosecute distributors of obscenity. Here is the high court's "Miller test" making it difficult to prosecute obscenity: "The basic guidelines for the trier of fact must be: (a) whether 'the average person, applying contemporary community standards' would find that the work, taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest, (b) whether the work depicts or describes, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct specifically defined by the applicable state law; and (c) whether the work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value." Under the reign of former California Speaker of the Assembly Willie Brown, California law changed "community standards" to "statewide standards." This means what's sexually offensive in Bakersfield isn't legally obscene unless it also makes San Franciscans blush
Are you still glad he's governor?

Many Republican voters who supported Arnold Schwarzenegger as the "lesser of two evils" are shocked to hear that the Governor has asked liberal Democrat Willie Brown, the former San Francisco mayor and the self-proclaimed "Ayatollah of the Assembly," to be master of ceremonies for Arnold's swearing-in party on Friday. But I'm not shocked, and you shouldn't be either. Power over principle on moral matters has been the norm for California's liberal Republican governor. Early on, in his bodybuilding days, Schwarzenegger raised eyebrows when he posed nude in a homosexual magazine and endorsed the homosexual lifestyle. As Governor of California, he's simply putting his transsexual-bisexual-homosexual agenda into law.

Here in 2007, Schwarzenegger has fashioned an administration that an anti-family Democrat would be proud of. After winning reelection in November, Schwarzenegger hired gay activist Daniel Zingale, Gray Davis' point-man on homosexual, bisexual and transsexual issues, as his senior advisor. This means the top homosexual activists from the Davis administration, including Arnold's lesbian chief-of-staff Susan Kennedy, are ready for action in the largely unaccountable Schwarzenegger administration. A homosexual newspaper has glowed about Schwarzenegger, writing "He has named gay judges to the bench in Southern California and has surrounded himself with a cadre of openly gay aides." (Bay Area Reporter 12/21/06). Arnold's "cadre" includes his personal assistant Clay Russell, an open homosexual, who accompanies Schwarzenegger "almost everywhere he goes (including vacation, sometimes)," and lives with his "partner-in-life." Is Arnold's selection of homosexual-activist staffers any surprise given the 20 anti-family laws he's signed over the past three years? Some pro-family Republican legislators have privately told me they believe Schwarzenegger may be totally unaccountable to family values his second term.

Last fall, most California pro-family voters supported Schwarzenegger as the "lesser of two evils." But is the "lesser of two evils" doctrine in the Bible? No, it stems from Greek philosophy. Liberal journalist Max Lerner (1902-1992), who loved pornography and frequented the Playboy Mansion, wrote, "When you choose the lesser of two evils, always remember that it is still an evil." Why did Lerner, an unabashed hedonist, understand what so many pro-family conservatives don't? Consider that in addition to the 20 anti-family laws Schwarzenegger has signed, the anti-family staff he's hired, and the big money he's raised for homosexual "Republican" activists, Schwarzenegger has done what no Democrat governor could ever do. Arnold has dumbed down the Republican Party, dumbed down conservative talk radio, and dumbed down the Church, all of which tolerate the anti-family things he does. Having liberal Schwarzenegger as California's "Republican" governor is like the fox guarding the hen house!

California Supreme Court preparing to legalize homosexual 'marriages'

For the last several months, I've been warning that the California Supreme Court is one vote away from legalizing homosexual "marriage" licenses. Now, after analyzing the latest evidence, I am predicting the state high court indeed has the votes it needs to destroy the definition of marriage between a man and a woman. You've already heard that the California Supreme Court has taken the San Francisco "gay marriages" case and will rule in early 2008. Now, get to know the four bad votes on the seven-member court:

1. Kathryn Werdegar: Voted in 2004 against nullifying the 4,000 "gay marriage" licenses issued by the City of San Francisco.

2. Joyce Kennard: Voted the same as Werdegar, against nullification, writing that "Individuals in loving same-sex relationships have waited years, sometimes several decades, for a chance to wed, yearning to obtain the public validation that only marriage can give."

3. Carol Corrigan: Nominated by Governor Schwarzenegger, Corrigan was enthusiastically supported by California's leading homosexual "marriage" organization when she was confirmed in early 2006 with the help of an equally enthusiastic Attorney General Bill Lockyer, who supports same-sex "marriage" legalization. The Los Angeles Times reported that Corrigan "is unmarried and shares a house in Oakland with a female friend."

4. Carlos Moreno: He is the fourth and deciding vote to destroy the definition of marriage between a man and a woman. Moreno, the high court's only Democrat, was put on the state high court in 2001 by former Gov. Gray Davis. In August 2005, Moreno authored the court's radical decision forcing businesses to treat homosexual "domestic partners" exactly the same as married customers: Domestic partners registered with the state, wrote Associate Justice Carlos R. Moreno for the majority, "are the equivalent of spouses for the purposes of the Unruh Act and a business that extends benefits to spouses it denies to registered domestic partners engages in impermissible marital status discrimination." (Daily Journal 8/1/05). The same month, Moreno authored a ruling that awarded parental status to two homosexual women, writing, "We perceive no reason why both parents of a child cannot be women." Now it's coming out that Moreno has a homosexual-activist research attorney named Michael Nava. In December, Moreno endorsed Nava's failed attempt to become California's first homosexual appeals court judge.
If you don't want the California Supreme Court to impose homosexual "marriage" ceremonies upon every community for every child to see, please pray for the success of the amendment, which is the only marriage amendment left in California. The amendment needs a wealthy soul to donate $2.5 million to place it on the ballot to override the state Supreme Court and permanently and fully protect marriage for one man and one woman in California. (In case you're wondering, Proposition 22, approved by the voters in 2000, was a mere statute and not a constitutional amendment, thus tempting judges to "reinterpret" the California Constitution to try to find the "right" to homosexual "marriages." In contrast, the amendment will fully, specifically and permanently protect everything about marriage for a man and a woman in the California State Constitution, far above the reach of judges and politicians.)

In an email from Karen England of the pro-family Capitol Resource Institute:

Family Matters

The most comprehensive study to date on homosexual "marriage" was recently released in Demark, the first country to legalize such unions. The 12-year study analyzed more than two million people and the factors that contributed to persons choosing homosexual relationships. The researchers looked particularly at the family backgrounds of individuals choosing to "marry" someone of the same sex.

The researchers noted: "Whatever ingredients determine a person's sexual preferences and marital choices, our population-based study shows that parental interactions are important."

The study shows that persons, most notably men, who marry same-sex partners are more likely to have been raised in broken families with absent fathers and divorced parents. The study also notes that men who lived with both parents continually from birth to age 18 are significantly less likely to enter a homosexual union. On the contrary, men who did not live with both parents until age 18 were 56%-76% more likely to "marry" another man.

"We are not surprised by research showing the importance of family upbringing in relation to choosing homosexuality," said Karen England, Executive Director of Capitol Resource Institute. "CRI has long recognized the value of strong families and we will continue working to promote healthy families."

Marriage in Massachusetts

Massachusetts is the only state in the union that has recognized homosexual "marriage." It is important to know what is happening in Massachusetts in order to defend the sacred institution of marriage here in California.

We reported in an earlier edition of Capitol Update that citizens of Massachusetts had presented a petition to the legislature to vote on an initiative so that the people could decide whether or not to overturn homosexual marriage in the state. The legislature pompously ignored the petition and took recess. This conduct was in blatant disregard to the state constitution requiring the legislature to act on petitions by the people.

It was only through a lawsuit, and a court ruling on December 27, that the legislature was compelled to vote. The legislature passed the initiative by a vote of 61 to 132. Only 50 votes were necessary. The initiative will also need to be passed in the next legislative session in order for it to appear on the ballot in 2008.

This is the first step towards a constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage in Massachusetts. Regardless of the outcome, the people deserve to have a say in the matter, rather than having homosexual marriage forced down their throats by the judiciary.

Finally, from CRI:

California Supreme Court to Decide Homosexual Marriage

As soon as California voters passed Prop 22 in 2000 protecting marriage for one man and one woman, homosexual activists rushed to find a sympathetic judge who would overturn the people's vote.

Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer declared Prop 22 unconstitutional in March 2005 but he was overruled by the California Court of Appeal in October 2006.

The California Supreme Court recently announced that it will take up this issue. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, it could be up to a year before the court decides the matter. In the meantime the California legislature will debate homosexual marriage (AB 43) in the next legislative session.

"Marriage is not something that should change with the current political wind," said Karen England, Executive Director of Capitol Resource Institute. "Marriage is a monumental and timeless institution. It provides stability and health for future generations. We should respect it enough to quit tampering with it and weakening it."

"If anything, our public policy should encourage and strengthen life-long commitments between one man and one woman, rather than trying to redefine and destroy the institution," continued England
