Funny, we always imagined that opening the 'gates of hell' would do more than just protect gays from discrimination

by Jeremy Hooper

Responding to the news that California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed SB 1441 -- a measure prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in state operated or funded services, activities and programs -- Randy Thomasson of the so-called Campaign for Children and Families says in a press release:

"People of conscience are appalled that Arnold Schwarzenegger has trampled religious freedom to satisfy hyperactive sexual activists," ... "SB 1441 will force religious colleges to either abandon their Biblical standards on sexuality, or reject students with state financial aid. Schwarzenegger is doing what Gray Davis did -- trample religious freedom at the bidding of liberal activists from San Francisco and West Hollywood."

And in the same release, Thomasson goes on to say the governor has "two faces" and that "He's not the lesser of two evils, he's doing evil." Then further expounding on his thoughts to WorldNetDaily, he asserts that "The gates of hell are prevailing against the church," and that "...the political process, absent religious values, is coming back to assault the church."

Dramatic. But don't judge Randster's "Chicken Little"-like ways too harshly -- it must be tough to constantly come up with new ways to justify discrimination in ways that paint him and his peeps as the victims!

This is just the first of several other Cali bills aimed at eliminating anti-gay bias in California schools and public sectors to get the nod from Schwarzenegger. Fingers crossed that Arnold will sign the others, not only because they are progressive steps in the right direction, but also because we are simply dying to know when, exactly, Thomasson thinks the California sky will actually fall.
