Gov. Brown signs bill allowing children to legally have more than two parents

Frazier, DeSaulnier support another anti-family bill by a San Francisco legislator

Commentary by Allen Payton

Once again, California’s Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill into law that undermines the family and morality in our state.

This time he signed into law a bill, SB 274, by Democrat Senator Mark Leno from San Francisco, allowing children to legally have more than two parents. Brown vetoed a similar bill, last year.

According to a press release from Leno’s office, “Senate Bill 274 allows courts to recognize the rights and responsibilities of each parent if recognizing only two parents would be detrimental to the child.”

It was sponsored by the Children’s Advocacy Institute and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.

SB 274 becomes state law on January 1, 2014.

Also, once again, Antioch’s representatives in Sacramento, State Assemblyman Jim Frazier and State Senator Mark DeSaulnier have both voted for this type of legislation, allowing San Francisco morals to permeate our state. (See vote info here)

Earlier this year they voted for what I call the gender-bender bathroom bill for school children (AB 1266 by San Francisco Democrat Assemblyman Tom Ammiano), allowing kids to determine what sex they and then use the bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex, as well as the bill (AB 154) making it easier to get an abortion, by allowing non-doctors to perform the medical procedure. (See vote info here and here)

Why do the Democrats in Sacramento do this? Because they coalesce with the LGBT community, which is one of their bases of support during elections.

Fortunately, a referendum effort is in process on

I’m pretty sure that voters of Contra Costa, Eastern Alameda and Solano Counties didn’t elect either Frazier, a self-proclaimed Catholic nor the Jesuit-educated DeSaulnier, to approve of such legislation. We sent them to Sacramento to solve our economic and budget problems. And that’s what they should be focusing on and resisting this type of legislation. It’s time they both grew backbones and stood up to the extreme elements in their party and legislators in our capital and voted against them and their anti-family bills.
