Heather will soon have 5 mommies

Calif. State Senator Mark Leno is on a mission to destroy the family. So you don't think that I am making some unwarranted inferences about his personal background, I will just quote from his biography:
Leno is the grandson of Jewish Russian immigrants. He is a native of Wisconsin and attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, then went on to become valedictorian of his graduating class at the American College in Jerusalem, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree. Leno also spent two years in rabbinical studies at Hebrew Union College in New York. Afterward, he moved to San Francisco on the invitation of his sister. He lived his first four years in the Tenderloin before moving to the Noe Valley neighborhood. In 1978, Leno started Budget Signs as owner and operator. The business incorporated in 1982. Working with his life partner, Douglas Jackson, the business continued to grow and their involvement in community affairs steadily expanded. Jackson died from complications related to AIDS in 1990. Despite this loss, Leno continued his efforts in community service.
By "community service", Leno and his allies seek to destroy American culture. What they hate the most is the happy American nuclear family, as symbolized by the 1950s TV show, Ozzie and Harriet.

Leno's latest plan is to legalize a wacky form of polygamy in California. The Sacramento Bee reports:
Beaver had June and Ward.

Ricky had Ozzie and Harriet.

Mom and Dad, same-sex couples or blended families, California law is clear: No more than two legal parents per child.

When adults fight over parenthood, a judge must decide which two have that right and responsibility – but that could end soon.

State Sen. Mark Leno is pushing legislation to allow a child to have multiple parents.

"The bill brings California into the 21st century, recognizing that there are more than Ozzie and Harriet families today," the San Francisco Democrat said.
Forget Heather Has Two Mommies. Heather could have 5 moms and 2 dads. Here are details from the law:
This bill would authorize a court to find that a child has 2 presumed parents notwithstanding the statutory presumption of parentage of the child by another man. The bill would authorize the court to make this finding if doing so would serve the best interest of the child based on the nature, duration, and quality of the presumed or claimed parents? relationships with the child and the benefit or detriment to the child of continuing those relationships. ...

This bill would provide that a child may have a parent and child relationship with more than 2 parents. ...

This bill would, in the case of a child with more than 2 legal parents, require the court to allocate custody and visitation among the parents based on the best interest of the child, including stability for the child.
I sometimes get readers who naively say that he gay rights lobby just wants the same rights that others enjoy. But this is not about the liberty to engage in perverted sex acts, or the right to express their love without govt interference, or anything like that. It is an attempt to give the family court judges broad new powers to intervene in people's lives. The Bee continues:
The key factor is a child's best interest: SB 1476 does not force judges to do anything, it only provides them with discretion to recognize multiple parents if doing so not only is beneficial, but is required for a child's well-being, Leno said.

Californians give judges great power to split families with the stroke of a pen, so there is a duty to do it right, said Ed Howard, senior counsel for the Children's Advocacy Institute at the University of San Diego School of Law. "And we can't get it right if we're forcing judges to rule against their judgment." ...

SB 1476 states that concerns about child stability "may mean that not all parents share legal or physical custody." ...

Ellen Pontac, a Davis gay-rights activist, said she and her wife, ...

"I just think that people should be able to create their own lives," she said.
Create their own lives? Is she kidding? No, the purpose is to give lesbians new ways to cut the dad out of the lives of his kids. A divorced mom could get a couple of lesbian lovers, and soon the dad is just one of 4 or 5 parents under the law. And all completely under the discretion of some family court judge who is allowed to apply his personal prejudices.

"And we can't get it right if we're forcing judges to rule against their judgment." ...

So why are they complaining about forcing judges to rule against their judgement when SB 1476 does not force judges to do anything ?

Do you get why they would say this sort of wacky thing.

I do think that judges should be forced to follow the law, and not be allowed to use their own personal prejudices to micromanage the lives of others. The gay-rights activists want judges to have the discretion to tear down families.

Yeah, the judges should be forced to follow the law, so they're going to change the law.

Did it say that the gay rights activists want judges to have the discretion to tear down families ? I never heard any of them say that, have you ?

George said...

Yes, that is what this proposed law is all about. It gives judges more discretion to diminish the role of fathers.

It seems that government generally tends to complicate matters.

I believe that you (and a lot of the media and others) mis-understand the point of this bill.

It is not to cut fathers out, it is meant to prevent that in many cases.

"Right now, under California law, a judge is being forced to rule in a way that he knows will hurt the child in front of him by denying the child a relationship with a real parent that would otherwise meet the stringent test for being a parent," said Ed Howard, of the Children's Advocacy Institute at the University of San Diego School of Law.

"This has nothing at all to do with the broader culture wars," Howard told "It has to do with recognizing on the ground who should make the call as to whether or not the evidence and the facts show that it's in the best interest of the child."

I wholeheartedly support this bill and pray that it passes.

Don't you think that it's those anti gay conservative family values politicians and politcal activists that need the liberty to engage in perverted sex acts ? They're the ones always getting caught paying young boys for sex in hotel rooms and airport bathrooms and such.

The gay activists are open and free to do what they want already. Free those closet gay conservatives.

That's right, it is not about the liberty to engage in perverted sex acts. It is not about gay conservatives. It is about attacking the rights of straights and kids.
