“Block Homosexual Marriages”–from Randy Thommason

Randy Thommason, the President of the Campaign for Children and Families, an anti-gay group here in California, is urging its members to resist the new law that was passed by the California State Supreme Court. He is asking his members to do a number of things.

The first is to work together to stop the "20,000 counterfeit marriages from occurring this summer and influencing millions of California children."  He states:

"Therefore, the ruling to impose homosexual "marriages" upon California was tyrannical, unconstitutional, and immoral."

He wants his followers to send a postcard to the Chief Justice and ask him to stay the law. 

The second is to call Schwarzenegger to tell him not to change the marriage license form.

Third, and what is the worst–he wants his followers to urge the county clerks to disobey the new ruling.  Here is what he has to say:

ACTION: If your county approved Prop. 22, please call your county clerk immediately. Urge him or her not to issue marriage licenses to anyone but a man and a woman. Urge your county clerk to:
“Do what’s right, maintain public order, uphold the marriage statutes, and respect the democratic process by NOT issuing any ‘same-sex marriage’ licenses until the people decide this issue in November. Please enforce the marriage statutes and Proposition 22, which both say marriage is only for a man and a woman. Decline to go along with the court’s nonsense. The separation of powers provision of the California Constitution prohibits the court from legislating from the bench. That’s why even Chief Justice Ron George told the L.A. Times he didn’t know whether his ruling would be accepted."

He then gives a list of the county clerk’s offices throughout California. I am very happy to see that only 57% of the people in my county voted for Prop. 22 and that San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Alameda, Marin, Sonoma and Yolo Counties rejected it. 

Anyway, what Randy Thomasson wants people to do is to harass the county clerks.  These clerks should follow the law, just like they did when they could not give marriage licenses to gays and lesbians when Prop. 22 passed.  Now that it has been overturned, the county clerks need to follow the law.  They don’t need the minions of Randy Thomasson to harass these people.  He is actively encouraging these ‘christians’ to break the law.  Maybe Randy Thomasson should consider moving to Gambia. I’m sure he would be made at least Vice President and then he can really run the gays and lesbians out for good. 

About the Campaign for Children and Families–it is a non profit, 501(c)3 organization, even though you don’t see that on their website (at least I couldn’t find it–even at the donor section).  I find it hard to believe that a non-profit can be so heavily involved in the lobbying effort and ask its members to harass government officials.  This sounds like a good letter to the IRS.  I encourage everyone to write a letter of complaint about this group.  Here is the address to the IRS Complaint office (for non-profits):

    There are always people against equal rights. When the Massachusetts State Supreme Court ruled to legalize gay marriage in 2003. The towns & cities were given a few months until May 17, 2004 when gay marriage would go into effect. Of course Romney & his cronies tried everything to stop it but failed. Even after gay marriages were performed they tried to get an amendment on to the ballot until June 14th, 2007 when it was finally defeated in the State House. For those who are still uncomfortable with gay marriage check out our short produced to educate & defuse the controversy. It has a way of opening closed minds & provides some sanity on the issue: http://www.OUTTAKEonline.com

    Hey Charlotte,
    Many thanks for that!  I just watched the clip–it is very good.  Doug and I are trying to decide if we want to get married in San Francisco or here in our own county.  I think it would be more fun in San Francisco…

    I got a friend who posted on this, and said that Gays should respect Religious Folks. It seems to me that Fundamentalist are having trouble respecting the rule of law, and furthermore the Constution as a Whole.
     
    Respect does not mean that Religious zealots get to tell other people how they get to live!

    Hey Canssandra,
    Thanks for the comment and the link!  I hope this finds you well.  And yes, it really is idiocy!

    Hey Rob,  I agree about the respect thing, but it is really hard to do when they are blaming us for all the ills of the world, including now the Flood!
