SF Democrat: Government will Decide What is Family

Jennifer Roback Morse has an excellent essay on Mark Leno's (D-SF) insane Senate Bill 1436. SB 1436 would allow three (or more) adults to have a legal claim to being a child's parent. SB 1436 is now on Governor Brown's desk, awaiting his signature or veto.

"Can a child have three parents? If California State Senator Mark Leno has his way, children in California will be able to have three legal parents. Before we dismiss SB 1476 as another example of California Weird, we had best look into it more closely. After all, the bill has passed both houses of the California Assembly and is awaiting Governor Brown’s signature or veto.

I believe this development was inevitable, more inevitable in fact than the much-vaunted inevitability of gay marriage. Once we started trying to normalize parenting by same-sex couples and redefine marriage to remove the dual-gender requirement, we had to end up with triple-parenting.

A deeper look at the whole picture surrounding SB 1476 reveals that not only should the three-parent law fail, same-sex “marriage” should fail as well. As we will see, embedded in this bill is an appalling power-grab by the state, and a grotesque misrepresentation of the facts by the bill’s authors."

We have spoken before of the totalitarian nature of the move to redefine marriage. Because it is the attempted redefinition of nature, the enshrinement of a lie, it cannot allow truth to stand. Redefining marriage requires redefining the family--and that is exactly what is happening. We hope our fellow citizens in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington, who will vote on whether or not to recognize counterfeit "marriage" in November, are watching.

Once again, we will add a clip from the 2008 "Marriage Matters to Kids" video. This clip, the final portion of the video, features especially chilling and prophetic observations. It is called "What is the Danger of Redefining Marriage?"
