Last month California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a bill that makes sure courts can consider non-biological parents when determining a child’s legal parents, safeguarding the rights of families led by opposite-sex and same-sex couples who adopt children or conceive via a sperm donor or surrogate. Naturally, Randy Thomasson of the militantly anti-gay group Save California is outraged that the state would move to keep families intact. He told the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow that same-sex couples cannot be “natural role models” and that rights for gay and lesbian parents represent “absolute insanity”:
“AB 1349 — giving non-biological parents, homosexuals, the right in court for kids in their custody — that is not good, because children do best with a married mother and father and with natural role models … not unnatural,” contends Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com.
Another bill, SB 651, was recently introduced by homosexual Senator Mark Leno of San Francisco. That legislation would remove the requirement that a couple must live together in order to be recognized as domestic partners.
“This is basically exploding the domestic partnership thing to make it a homosexual relationship with a child, to make a homosexual relationship with people who don’t even live together equal to marriage,” the pro-family leader argues. “It’s absolute insanity, and it is erasing all distinctions between natural and unnatural [and] marriage and non-marriage. It’s sad, but this is what you get with Democrats,” he concludes. “Elections have consequences.”
