No surrender on marriage or homosexuality

Friday, June 26, 2015, 4:11 pm | Randy Thomasson

VIDEO: Here I am on Sacramento TV representing real marriage and the written Constitution and here too

After doing TV, radio, and newspaper interviews blasting the U.S. Supreme Court’s unconstitutional 5-4 opinion attacking marriage and states’ rights, I took a photo of the rainbow flag being draped from the State Capitol by Democrat homosexual activists (see below), and went back to my office to consider what to write you.

And I want to remind you of something. No matter what any judge or politician or law or poll says, marriage has been, is, and forever will be for a man and a woman. Because homosexual “marriages” are counterfeit and false.

Consider these self-evident truths:

1. You’re born either male or female, as determined by chromosomes (a male inherits a Y chromosome from his father, but a female does not).

2. You need something from a man and something from a woman to conceive a baby through the miracle of procreation.

3. A man and a woman fit together perfectly and healthily (like a plumber knows there are male and female pipe fittings).

4. The only human pair that can achieve coitus are a man and a woman.

5. Children do best inside and out with a married father and mother under the same roof.

Bottom line, if you don’t have a man and a woman, you don’t have marriage. I’m going to keep saying this self-evident truth and I encourage you to do the same.

What’s more, on a legal level, the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion by a bare minimum of judicial activists on the bench is simply unconstitutional, completely illegitimate, and should be rejected by you, by pastors, by governors, and by everyone who knows that “the law” is what’s written in our Constitution, according to the original intent of its drafters. We each need to explain this to others to help them stop thinking that judges make the law — not in a republic they don’t!

TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION TO LOVE OTHERS: Please post your comments along with talking points from SaveCalifornia.com’s June 26 news release (scroll down to see it) on news media sites. Wherever there’s a news story you can usually post a comment. This way, you can explain the truth about marriage and the Constitution to people who are wondering about it. Please spread the truth this way!

And here are good articles on the reality of man-woman marriage and the delusion of homosexual “marriages”:

Matt Walsh: Gay Marriage Still Doesn’t Exist, No Matter What the Supreme Court Says

Top Christian Resources on the Marriage Debate (Books, Articles, Videos, Podcasts on Gay Marriage/Same-Sex Marriage)

From SaveCalifornia.com’s June 26 news release:

Facts:

1. Marriage licenses and regulation are not in the United States Constitution, are therefore the jurisdiction of voters in individual states (9th and 10th Amendments; Article IV, Section 4).

2. Article IV, Section 4 guarantees to every state “a republican form of government” — meaning 1) no monarchy and 2) no lawless mob rule, but a government of written laws representing the will of the people, who are sovereign. State constitutions represent the People’s will on marriage, which the federal judiciary must affirm. (See footnote recording James Madison’s definition of republican government as “a republican constitution and its existing laws” http://constitution.findlaw.com/article4/annotation18.html#t322)

3. The 10th Amendment explicitly says powers that don’t belong to the federal government, or what the Constitution does not prohibit among the states, are state powers. Therefore, marriage is under the states’ jurisdiction.

4. The 14th Amendment is one of three post-Civil War amendments and was about race — giving black former slaves the same legal rights of white freemen — not about marriage. The Amendment applied to the states what was already a federal right enshrined in the 5th Amendment — that no one should be killed (deprived of life), imprisoned or enslaved (deprived of liberty), or deprived of their property without a court order (due process of law). Further, the Equal Protection Clause in no way requires the recognition of same-sex “marriages” because homosexual couples are not the same as heterosexual couples. They cannot have a conjugal union that produces children, and one of the primary purposes of marriage is to bind together fathers and mothers for the benefit of the children they bring into the world.

Authorities — the Constitution of the United States:

Article IV, Section 4: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.”http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution_transcript.html

5th Amendment: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/bill_of_rights_transcript.html

9th Amendment: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/ninth_amendment

10th Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/tenth_amendment

14th Amendment, Section 1: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution_amendments_11-27.html

Get the picture that there are facts, evidence, and truth for you to know, embrace, and explain to others? Time to speak out! Let’s stand together as we boldly love for all that’s good and real for children and families!

“A government of laws, an not of men.”

Suicide promotion bill stalled — act now to defeat it

Thursday, June 25, 2015, 1:35 pm | Randy Thomasson

I knew this could happen. Because suicide legalization has never passed a house of the California Legislature or passed on the California ballot, and only passed the state Senate this year, I knew that SB 128, the suicide promotion bill allowing doctors to prescribe a lethal drug to a so-called “terminal” patient, was a seriously uncomfortable notion that could be stalled in the Assembly. And that’s exactly what has happened, due to a preponderance of Latino Democrats who have a Catholic background with strong values against suicide.

Will this keep California from becoming the Suicide State that teaches young people that suicide is an answer? Yes, if Californians who care make phone calls to “hold” the reluctant Democrats on the committee and make them immovable (see phone numbers below).

When the Democrat author of SB 128 pulled the bill from the hearing roster on June 22, it was because the suicide bill didn’t have 10 votes to pass in the 19-member committee. You saw how SB 128 was in trouble due to a) concerns and proposed amendments from several of the committee’s Democrats, and b) public opposition — phone calls + expert lobbying at the Capitol + more people speaking out publicly. This is why SaveCalifornia.com has been working hard, both behind in the scenes and in public, as we’ve called on Californians to oppose this suicide promotion bill.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported: “Sources said six Democrats on the committee expressed reservations, five of whom are members of the Latino caucus. Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, confirmed she is among those who oppose the bill, citing personal reasons.”

So this is a temporary victory and is definitely good news! The 5 Democrat Latinos on the Assembly Health Committee who wouldn’t vote for suicide are: Roger Hernández of West Covina, Miguel Santiago of downtown Los Angeles, Freddie Rodriguez of Pomona, Susan Bonilla of Concord, and Lorena Gonzalez of San Diego. The other reluctant Democrat on the committee, who is not Latino, is likely either Adrin Nazarian of Van Nuys or Tony Thurmond of Oakland.

TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION: Please continue spreading the word to others and calling the swing votes on the Assembly Health Committee, which could still vote on SB 128 by between now and July 14. Tell them “The proposed amendments still allow coercion when the lethal drug is swallowed, contains a mis-definition of the word ‘terminal,” and deceptively permits a falsified death certificate. Please vote no on SB 128.”

“Sensitive, thinking Democrats”:
1. Adrin Nazarian (916) 319-2046
2. Tony Thurmond (916) 319-2015
3. Autumn Burke (916) 319-2062

Latino Democrats:
1. Roger Hernández (916) 319-2048
2. Miguel Santiago (916) 319-2053
3. Jimmy Gomez (916) 319-2051
4. Freddie Rodriguez (916) 319-2052
5. Susan Bonilla (916) 319-2014
6. Lorena Gonzalez (916) 319-2080

Committee Republicans:
1. Brian Maienschein (916) 319-2077
2. Rocky Chávez (916) 319-2076
3. Tom Lackey (916) 319-2036
4. Marc Steinorth (916) 319-2040
5. Marie Waldron (916) 319-2075
6. Jim Patterson (916) 319-2023

“We cannot allow California to become a place where we respond to human suffering by simply making it easier for people to kill themselves. Helping someone die — even if that person is desperate and asks for the help — is still killing.”

15 California Republican legislators attack God and family

Wednesday, June 24, 2015, 3:19 pm | Randy Thomasson

sellout

On June 22, the Democrats brought up their annual “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride” resolutions in both houses of the California Legislature — and 15 Republicans voted for it.

Adding insult to injury, 12 of the 13 Assembly Republicans became co-authors of this perverse resolution. This includes several so-called “conservative” Republicans who call themselves “pro-family.”

This is an outright sell-out of California families and a very public partnering with evil. SaveCalifornia.com’s June 23 news release blew the whistle on these “pro-family” legislators who’ve voted against God and family.

“In California, the ‘LGBT’ agenda has done great damage to the people’s vote on marriage, children in public schools, people’s health, religious freedom, freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, and freedom of association,” I said. “The intolerant ‘LGBT’ agenda should be opposed for the sake of liberty and love. What were these Republicans thinking when they voted against families and for sexual tyranny?”

Please take immediate action and express your strong disapproval when you call these 15 California Republican state legislators who have sold out family values:

“It’s important to stress what I didn’t find … I did not prove that homosexuality is genetic, or find a genetic cause for being gay. I didn’t show that gay men are ‘born that way,’ the most common mistake people make in interpreting my work. Nor did I locate a gay center in the brain.”
