On August 28, a Ventura County Republican named Jeff Gorell partnered with every Democrat in the California State Assembly to pass AB 1856, authored by homosexual activist and Democrat assemblyman Tom Ammiano of San Francisco. See the vote.
This intolerant, perverse, and foolish bill, sponsored by homosexual-bisexual-transsexual activists, forces foster parents to support sexually harmful behavior of abused children in foster homes — by requiring foster parents to have “instruction on cultural competency and sensitivity” in complete support of any homosexual, bisexual, or cross-dressing/”sex change” behavior of children in their care. This is despite the evidence showing these behaviors are inherently unnatural and unhealthy.
As I said in our news release, “This bad bill tramples religious freedom, destroys moral sensitivities, and erases the differences between male and female in foster homes. If this burdensome bill is signed, the state will be telling prospective foster parents, ‘Don’t sign up.’”
Gorell of Ventura County was the only registered Republican to vote for AB 1856. Gorell joined all 52 Democrats in voting “yes,” along with former Republican Nathan Fletcher of San Diego, now a registered independent.
From 1993 to 1996, Gorell was an advisor, writer and deputy press secretary to pro-abortion Republican Governor Pete Wilson. And while he now represents a morally conservative district, Gorell is also in the pro-abortion camp.
This week, not only did Gorell support a terrible bill pushing perversity in foster homes, he was present but abstained on other homosexual-bisexual-transsexual bills of the Democrats:
SB 1172 prohibits parents from hiring a counselor to help their molested child overcome gender confusion: Gorell did not vote
AJR 43, a resolution calling for a U.S. homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda: Gorell did not vote
SB 1140, a religious-freedom “ruse” that paves the way for homosexual “marriages”: Gorell did not vote
Next to a sincere compliment, I think I like a well-deserved and honest rebuke.
