Currently in California, if an adult (age 18 or over) has heterosexual relations with a teenager (age 14-17) and the age difference between them is less than 10 years, then the adult is not required to be a registered sex offender. But if the adult has homosexual relations with a teenager, then he is required to be registered as a sex offender. This rightfully recognizes the depraved and destructive character of homosexual sex (both physical and mental) and how it affects a child much more profoundly.
This disparity has long angered the homosexual movement, which has always been obsessed with getting access to young teenagers – and with being seen as normal.
SB 145 would eliminate that distinction for homosexual sex. Thus, adult homosexuals could prey on young teenagers sexually – as happens so much – and not be considered sex offenders. Many people have called it the “Sex Offender Freedom” Act.
Openly “gay” State Sen. Scott Wiener introduced SB 145. Wiener represents one of the most LGBT districts in the country: the entire city and county of San Francisco, CA. He is one of the most vocal members of California’s LGBT Legislative Caucus and aggressively pushes “groundbreaking” LGBT legislation….
California MassResistance began a full-court press on Sen. Wiener’s office with letters, emails, phone calls, etc., from across the state to urge him to stop the bill. The California MassResistance team in his district even attended Sen Wiener’s town hall event in San Francisco to personally communicate to him their outrage.
But early on, California MassResistance could see that the best strategy was not to focus on the Senate, but to begin pressuring the State Assembly (similar to the House of Representatives in other states). In March, April, and May 2019, California MassResistance activists throughout the state targeted key Assembly Members in their districts. They even showed up at the Assembly Speaker’s town hall event in his district….
As expected, SB 145 sailed through three Senate committees. On May 28, 2019 it passed the full Senate 25-3….
On July 10, it was approved by the Assembly’s Public Service Committee and was sent to the Appropriations Committee, where it basically ground to a halt. There was a committee hearing set for August 30, 2019 that was postponed. Nothing further has happened with it.
Right now, during the continued COVID-19 situation, the California Legislature is moving at pretty much a snail’s pace. And constitutionally, the entire session must end for good on August 31, 2020….
The above comes from a June 21 release by Mass Resistance.
