California wingnut outfit calls for vetoes on pro-gay legislation
Folks out there in the Golden State — clue me in on this outfit called the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI). I've not heard of them until now. Apparently they are bleating to bombard Bush and the Governator to “veto several bills that seek to advance the homosexual agenda.” (One News Now):
In California, several pro-homosexual bills have passed the legislature and are awaiting the governor's signature. Among them, SB 777, which would expand the push of homosexual propaganda in schools. AB 43 would legalize same-sex “marriage” in California. AB 14 would expand the state's civil rights laws to add more special protections for homosexuals, and AB 102 would further blur the lines between marriage and domestic partnerships.
PJI president Brad Dacus says time is of the essence. “These bills are sitting on the governor's desk as we speak. The governor will have to make a decision within two weeks whether to sign them or veto them, or allow them to become law. So there's very little time left,” he says.
Dacus also encourages concerned Christians to contact the White House and urge President Bush to honor his pledge to veto a hate crimes amendment that was inserted into a defense appropriations bill. “Unfortunately, Halloween is coming a few weeks early for people of faith, with several nightmarish bills threatening to silence our religious freedoms,” says Dacus.
Oh, please. According to its web site, PJI is a non-profit legal defense organization
“specializing in the defense of religious freedom, parental rights, and other civil liberties…Pacific Justice Institute's strategy is to coordinate and oversee large numbers of concurrent court actions through a network of over 1,000 affiliate attorneys nationwide. And, according to former United States Attorney General Edwin Meese, “The Institute fills a critical need on the West Coast for those whose civil liberties are threatened.”
Look at who else endorses the work of this group:
