8/23/13: The death of Prop. 8 is the death of our California republic

SAVECALIFORNIA.COM NEWS RELEASE

August 23, 2013 -- For Immediate Release

The Death of Prop. 8 is the Death of our California Republic
"By killing off part of the Constitution, the new 'kings' of California have replaced our republic with their dictatorship"

Sacramento, California -- Now that there is no honest court willing to hear the state constitutional arguments supporting the People's vote for Prop. 8 requiring "a man and a woman" for California marriage licenses, a longtime defender of natural marriage rights exclusively for one man and one woman in California says the death of Proposition 8 signifies the death of the republic that the state once was.

"When public officials ignore the California Constitution, they have placed themselves above the supreme law of the State of California," said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, which promotes moral virtues for the common good. "By killing off part of the Constitution -- "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California" -- the new 'kings' of California, Democrats Jerry Brown and Kamala Harris, and the San Francisco-based state Supreme Court, have replaced our republic with their dictatorship."

"If a written state constitution is not the top, authoritative state law to which public officials submit themselves as they've promised, then they've ceased to be public servants and have instead illegitimately made themselves 'the law,'" Thomasson said. "Our one-time republic has legally become an insecure place, because you can no longer trust that the written law is indeed the law. The People's social compact has been shredded, the voters' will is no longer respected, and our republic is no more."

California's "statewide constitutional officers" and the California Supreme Court have elevated themselves above the California State Constitution:

On August 14, the California Supreme Court placed itself above the California Constitution when, without explanation, it refused to hear or submit to the sound constitutional arguments of the Prop. 8 petition, which was based on Article 3, Section 3.5, the supremacy of the California Constitution to a state agency, and the very narrow legal construction of the Prop. 8 federal case.

Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California. Article 1, Section 7.5

An administrative agency, including an administrative agency created by the Constitution or an initiative statute, has no power...to declare a statute unenforceable, or refuse to enforce a statute, on the basis of it being unconstitutional unless an appellate court has made a determination that such statute is unconstitutional. Article 3, Section 3.5

California's "statewide constitutional officers" have refused to do their constitutional duty to support and defend the California Constitution:

From 2009 through 2010, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and California Attorney General Jerry Brown refused to do their constitutional duty to enforce and defend Article 1, Sec. 7.5 (Prop. 8).

From 2010 through 2013, California Governor Jerry Brown and California Attorney General Kamala Harris refused to do their constitutional duty to enforce and defend the voter-approved constitutional amendment.

The Governor shall see that the law is faithfully executed. Article 5, Section 1

Subject to the powers and duties of the Governor, the Attorney General shall be the chief law officer of the State. It shall be the duty of the Attorney General to see that the laws of the State are uniformly and adequately enforced. Article 5, Section 13

The Attorney General shall attend the Supreme Court and prosecute or defend all causes to which the State, or any State officer is a party in his or her official capacity. California Government Code, Section 12512

California Oath of Office: "I, ______, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter." Article XX, Section 3

Jerry Brown, Kamala Harris, and the California Supreme Court are violating the required government structure for every state within the United States of America:

Article IV, Section 4 of the United States Constitution guarantees to California and every other state "a republican form of government" -- meaning 1) no monarchy and 2) no lawless mob rule, but a government of written laws that represent the will of the people, who are sovereign. (See footnote recording James Madison's definition of republican government as "a republican constitution and its existing laws") The California Constitution represents the people's will: "All political power is inherent in the people." (Article II, Section 1)

California is no longer a republic or a constitutional democracy according to the CIA World Factbook, which defines government types:

While "The Golden State" used to be a constitutional democracy, California has now devolved into a dictatorship, "a form of government in which a rule or small clique wield absolute power (not restricted by a constitution or laws)." According to the CIA World Factbook:

Constitutional - a government by or operating under an authoritative document (constitution) that sets forth the system of fundamental laws and principles that determines the nature, functions, and limits of that government.

Constitutional democracy - a form of government in which the sovereign power of the people is spelled out in a governing constitution.

Democracy - a form of government in which the supreme power is retained by the people, but which is usually exercised indirectly through a system of representation and delegated authority periodically renewed.

Democratic republic - a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote for officers and representatives responsible to them.

Dictatorship - a form of government in which a ruler or small clique wield absolute power (not restricted by a constitution or laws).


"Californians of all political stripes should be concerned when our supreme written law, the California Constitution, is no longer a secure, authoritative standard that is recognized by the courts or enforced by public officials," Thomasson concluded. "If a state constitution is no longer faithfully honored, then a state is no longer a republic, which should make everyone afraid."

8/29/13: Ninth Circuit panel locks molested children into homosexuality

SAVECALIFORNIA.COM NEWS RELEASE

August 29, 2013 -- For Immediate Release

Ninth Circuit Panel Locks Molested Children into Homosexuality
Ruling to be appealed for "sake of these hurting children and the First Amendment."

Sacramento, California -- Today's opinion of a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit federal appeals court upholding SB 1172 must be overturned by higher courts as a violation of the First Amendment rights of parents and minors to seek and acquire professional counseling to overcome gender confusion, says a leading California family organization.

"This unconstitutional statute violates the free speech and freedom of religion of parents of gender-confused children and the professional counselors who want to help these minors," said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, which promotes moral virtues for the common good. Thomasson was in the San Francisco courtroom for the April 17 hearing. "SB 1172 locks molested children into homosexuality by prohibiting them from receiving professional counseling to understand the source of their sexual confusion.This bad law should be struck down for the protection of precious First Amendment freedoms for the benefit of children who seek help to recover their natural gender identity."

"All who support free speech and the right to choose should oppose this draconian Democratic law robbing teenagers of self-determination and trampling parents' God-given rights to act in the best interests of their own children," Thomasson said. "Many children have benefited from professional counseling to help them overcome unwanted same-sex sexual or romantic desires, attractions, behaviors, mannerisms, or identity. For the sake of these hurting children and the First Amendment, the parents, their children, and their licensed counselors who are plaintiffs are appealing this unconstitutional ruling."

"The minors we represent do not want to act on same-sex attractions, nor do they want to engage in such behavior. They are greatly benefiting from this counseling. Their grades have gone up, their self-esteem has improved, and their relationships at home are much improved," said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, who argued against SB 1172 in court. "Legislators and judges in the state of California have essentially barged into the private therapy rooms of victimized young people and told them that their confusion, caused by the likes of a Jerry Sandusky abuser, is normal and they should pursue their unwanted and dangerous same-sex sexual attractions and behavior, regardless of whether those minors desire their religious beliefs to trump their unwanted attractions."

4/19/13: 'Day of Silence' at public schools deceives about victimhood

SAVECALIFORNIA.COM NEWS RELEASE

April 19, 2013 -- For Immediate Release

'Day of Silence' at Public Schools Deceives About Victimhood
In California, those who practice homosexuality have more rights than others  

Sacramento, California -- A leading pro-family organization says the "victimhood" message of today's pro-"lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender" (LGBT) "Day of Silence" disruption of public schools is deceptive because those who practice homosexuality have much stronger legal rights than other Californians.

Today, students participating in the "Day of Silence" are wearing pro-homosexuality T-shirts, delivering pro-"LGBT" speeches in classrooms of supportive teachers, refusing to answer teachers' questions in other classrooms, making it difficult for other students to concentrate, and generally taking over school campuses for the entire day.

"Who's victimizing whom? California laws have awarded those who call themselves 'lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender' more powerful legal rights than other people's free speech, religious freedom, or freedom of association," said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, which promotes moral virtues for the common good. "These concocted 'gay rights' are trampling the First Amendment rights of everyday people who dislike this unnatural, unhealthy, and intolerant agenda."

"Numerous state laws are intolerant of religious freedom, so the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda wins in court while average people lose their God-given and constitutional parental rights, property rights, and religious freedom," Thomasson explained. "It's deceptive to claim that homosexual students are silenced at school, or homosexual adults silenced in society, when it's the other way around. For example, a Bible bookstore in California can be fined up to $150,000, without a trial, for not waiting to hire an open homosexual or transsexual. And shocking sexual indoctrination is being fed children in public school behind their parents' backs. Talk about crushing religious freedom and trampling parental rights!"

"The way to stop the physical or verbal bullying of anyone at school is for parents and schools to teach Jesus Christ's rule to 'treat people the same way you want them to treat you,' and to apply that to everyone, not to just select groups," Thomasson said. "But given the immaturity of children, the more that sexual behaviors are pushed in students' faces, the more conflicts will likely arise. If not for a raft of state laws requiring public-school students to be sexually indoctrinated, government schools could focus on academics and teach moral virtues. But these days, that is only going to happen in church schools and home schools."

School administrators have frequently denied sponsoring, participating in, or allowing the "Day of Silence," but are allowing students to be silent nonetheless. "Morally-sensitive parents who hear about 'Day of Silence' are appalled at this hijacking of the school day," Thomasson said.

See SaveCalifornia.com's web page urging parents to "just walk out" of the "Day of Silence"

According to the "Day of Silence" website, three years ago, students at some 8,000+ elementary, middle, and high schools participated, as well as at some colleges.

The aggressive tactics of the "Day of Silence" are explained by homosexual activists themselves:

"The Day of Silence is a perfect tool for creating change. We wanted a queer-friendly prom, and after showing that many students and staff care -- we got a queer-friendly prom. We said we wouldn't be silenced and we won't."

"The Day of Silence can be a great tool to catapult change at your school! Do you want a more LGBT inclusive library, teacher training, LGBT inclusive nondiscrimination policies or something else?"


Thomasson concluded, "It's not academic to steal the school day for politically-correct sexual propaganda. It's not scientific to push being 'gay and lesbian' as good and natural without teaching children the facts that there's no 'gay gene' and that homosexual behavior is the primary mode of HIV/AIDS transmission. And it's not scholarly to claim this issue is about safety, since numerous laws already prohibit violence on school campuses."

4/29/13: Statement on 'Queer Youth Advocacy Day' at California's Capitol

SAVECALIFORNIA.COM NEWS RELEASE

April 29, 2013 -- For Immediate Release

Statement on 'Queer Youth Advocacy Day' at California's Capitol
'Allowing boys into girls' school bathrooms and showers is a foolish and disruptive notion'

Sacramento, California -- A leading pro-family organization says today's "Queer Youth Advocacy Day" at the California State Capitol represents a deceptive agenda that harms children and families.

The main bill the homosexual, bisexual, and transsexual youth are pushing for is AB 1266, which forces K-12 public schools to permit biological boys into girls' restrooms, showers, clubs, and on girls' sports teams; and biological girls into boys' restrooms, showers, clubs, and on boys' sports teams.

"Allowing boys into girls' school bathrooms and showers is a foolish and disruptive notion," said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, which promotes moral virtues for the common good. "Biological boys have XY chromosomes and biological girls have XX chromosomes. It's not logical, valid, or true for anyone to claim to be a gender that doesn't match their God-given chromosomes. The Democrats' mandating of gender-bending, transsexual school bathrooms would be the 10th public school sexual indoctrination law in California if Governor Jerry Brown goes along with the homosexual groups and their anti-family, Democrat legislators."

"Queer means unnatural, and these confused and rebellious kids ought to recognize the fact that homosexual behavior is unhealthy to those who practice it," Thomasson said. "There's no so-called 'gay gene," but there are thousands and thousands of former homosexuals who have left this behavior behind for good. Those who practice homosexuality have more health problems, including higher rates of sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS, as well as higher rates of cancer. Why teach children that it's unhealthy to smoke, do drugs, or get drunk, but then tell them it's OK to engage in unhealthy homosexual-bisexual-transsexual behavior?"
