California legislators have introduced a bill to pressure judges to remove kids from parents who won’t affirm their child’s self-determined trans-identity. Just this morning, the bill, AB 957, passed in the Assembly Judiciary Committee with a party-line vote; Republicans voted no, and Democrats voted yes. The bill’s author, Assemblywoman Lori Wilson (D-Livermore) introduced the bill to tell court judges to suspend their own independent judgment in custody disputes and instead “strongly consider that affirming the minor’s gender identity is in the best interest of the child.” Wilson is the only parent in the state legislature with a trans-identified child.
The bill’s principal coauthor is Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco). He authored a bill passed last year, SB 107, that gives California courts jurisdiction over any child brought to the state for trans-drugs, surgeries, or counseling even if kidnapped by a friend or a relative.
“It is unconscionable that state legislators would try and take children from parents who believe the sex of their children is a matter of biology and not feelings, or because they want to protect their children from sterilizing drugs and mutilating surgeries,” said Greg Burt, Capitol Director for the California Family Council. “The First Amendment protects parents from losing their children because their opinions or religious beliefs are unpopular with state politicians.”

Move to the Bible belt. There are Catholics there too. (After you pray of course. The Lord may wish for you to stay and “be one of the ten.”
Are they going to stand in front of God on their judgment day and convince Him that He got this gender thing all wrong?
To those who want the “disordered” language in the Catechism changed because it is “hurtful” and “does more harm than good” or is misunderstood, how about this?
Same-sex genital acts are in no way directed toward any moral good; they are always an improper use of the sexual organs. No intention whatsoever can make them into morally good acts because they fundamentally and unavoidably depart from how those organs should properly be used, which proper and good use is solely in relation with their sexual complement in the opposite sex.
That preserves the substance of the Church’s doctrine without using the objectionable word “disordered”.
Ah, but I think they really want the substance of the teaching changed, and feigning dislike for the terminology is their way to get in inch, after which they will take a mile.
Scott Wiener is demonic! St. Michael the Archangel….
Ms. Lori Wilson can do whatever she wants
with her own child for all I care.
Do not employ the Govt to drag me and my kids
into your mental illness by impairing MY freedom.
A transgender flight attendant for United Airlines committed suicide yesterday. This person had transitioned and had the relevant body parts mutilated. Still, this person committed suicide.
Don’t believe the James Martins and Democrat politicians who say we need to give in to trans-demands and affirm children who want to transition or else they will kill themselves. They will kill themselves anyway.
These people are unwell. They don’t need surgery, they don’t need their delusions to be affirmed, they need psychiatric counseling to cure them of the mental illness in which they either hate their bodies or want to have the other sex’s anatomy.
“and instead “strongly consider that affirming the minor’s gender identity is in the best interest of the child.” Lori Wilson is a sick and sinful woman who needs to validate her condition by requiring government to validate her choice as normative for all families. Leave it to the California democrats to indulge Ms. Wilson in this tragedy.
Very well said.
ya git the idea they WANT
normal people to flee California
If you sign petitions against Scott Wiener’s deluge of extremely immoral, demonic bills in the State legislature, and they ask you to please call Wiener’s office and give your opinion– a nice secretary will take your message. Same thing, with Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office. You can get your voice heard, as a constituent, without having to deal with Wiener, Newsom, and other difficult, combative politicians, who reject Christian Morality and good family values. There are many wonderful groups in California that are trying to promote good religious and family values– California Catholic Conference, California Family Council, Family Research Council, many Pro Life groups, etc.– and even the Republican Party. They often will ask you to sign petitions, make phone calls, write letters, etc. etc.– and go to Sacramento to help in lobbying, marches, etc. You can choose what you feel comfortable doing. Many parents’ groups, like “One Million Moms,” “Concerned Parents of San Diego,” etc. are also working hard, all across America, to combat immorality and WOKE ideology, the “LGBT agenda,” “gender agenda,” Drag Queens, and pornography in the schools. Someday, God will help us all turn California around, to be a good and decent state, once again, with respect for Christian Morality and good family values.
