I wonder what your Daddy, former California Governor Edmund G. “Pat” Brown (D) would say if he were with us today.
Jesus said in Matthew 19:4-5: “He answered, ‘Have you not read that He who made them from the beginning made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one?’”
Or didn’t you study that at Sacred Heart Novitiate when you spent three years to become a Catholic priest? I guess you paid more attention to your leftist professors when you transferred to U.C. Berkeley than you did at seminary.
Governor Brown, as you intended, you just redefined marriage in California by signing State Senator Mark Leno’s (D-San Francisco) Senate Bill making the terms “husband” and “wife” illegal in the California Family Code. The terms are being replaced with “spouse.”
The bill states:
Under existing law, a reference to ‘husband’ and ‘wife,’ ‘spouses’ or ‘married persons,’ or a comparable term, includes persons who are lawfully married to each other and persons who were previously lawfully married to each other, as is appropriate under the circumstances of the particular case … The bill would delete references to ‘husband’ or ‘wife’ in the Family Code and would instead refer to a ‘spouse,’ and would make other related changes.
According to the Tea Party News Network, Leno had this to say about his bill which Brown signed into law on September 13: “This legislation removes outdated and biased language from state codes and recognizes all married spouses equally, regardless of their gender.”
You might as well say that God’s Word and the Constitution are outdated and biased.
So let me get this straight: We now are making it illegal to refer to a ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ in a heterosexual marriage? The State of California is once again imposing itself against the accepted First Amendment right of religion by changing the traditional acceptance of marriage between a man and his wife (e.g., Genesis 2:24 and 1 Timothy 3:2.), but that isn’t all. The State is also overriding our Constitutional rights to practice our religious liberty by not allowing people of faith to refer to themselves in manner codified in Scripture for over 4,500 years!
Californians, we are now living in a state that redefines terms and calls good evil and evil good and forces the heavy boot of secularism on the necks of We the People. So much for the free practice of religion and our free practice of speech—our First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. The redefinition of our lives and language in order to please a Socialist State is not something our Founding Fathers would be pleased with, but since when has the Constitution or Judeo-Christian American heritage meant anything to these revisionist tyrants?
Many might ask, “How can they do that?”—The answer, “We let them!”
