California: Embrace Gay Agenda or Lose Tax Exempt Status

The California legislature is considering punishing youth groups who don't embrace the gay agenda. Earlier this week, the Committee on Revenue and Taxation voted 6 to 3 to move the bill to the full judiciary committee.

The openly gay State Sen. Ricardo Larahas proposed the bill that would strip non-profit youth organizations of their sales tax exemption for food and other items if they discriminate "on the basis of gender identity, race, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, or religious affiliation."

The bill literally names 25 organizations that must embrace the gay agenda or suffer the consequences including the Boy Scouts, Young Men's Christian Association and Little League. It is unclear what "discriminate" means, however. And I wonder if Catholic schools would eventually be included as a non-profit youth organization as well. In fact, I don't wonder at all. I'm positive they would be eventually...as soon as the legislature thought they could get away with it.

Keep a close eye on this legislation.

I'm sorry, but where does the gay agenda fit into little league? Seriously folks, does our California government need to make everything about gender politics? Can't a group of kids get together and enjoy our national pastime and get some exercise without the government inserting their agenda into it?

When sexual activity is made sexual identity it is also made ubiquitous...This is only the beginning.

Now we'll see who is part of the Creative Minority.

Senator Larahas is a would-be tyrant right out of ANIMAL FARM.

It brings to mind our local city commission, which passed a law banning discrimination against transgender people (read: a man claiming to be a woman can now share the bathroom at the diner with your 9 year old daughter) though the city's equality officer admitted that he had no documented cases of such discrimination, only "anecdotal evidence."

Hasn't the BSA already sold out to the sodomite agenda? True, they don't YET allow their leaders to be homosexual (at least not openly), but they're falling in step with other morally spineless organizations. Kow-towing to the sodomites is becoming the hallmark of this country--or at least the bulk of its leadership.
And, yes, it's just a matter of time before Catholic schools (not to mention parishes) are included in this "legislation."

This should be fought out in the courts, but I have no faith in the judiciary making the right ruling. Also, it wouldn't make much difference if they do, as the Left is prepared to defy any ruling or law not to their liking on this issue, up to and including SCOTUS.

Midday: Thanks! I wanted more details.

I see nothing wrong here. The thought police are given proper authority in the defined jurisdiction. Al nonconforming thought will be interrogated, punished and squeezed of all life support until or unless they conform to the group think. Sorry. Reading too much science fiction...or news. Can't tell anymore.

Every day it becomes increasingly obvious why the gay lifestyle practitioners were precluded from participation in society. The constant "in your face" intellectually bankrupt attitude pushing "their way or the highway" in the name of tolerance and diversity is fast becoming counter productive.

its all part of the "Frankfurt School of Critical theory" (Institut für Sozialforschung) that has been destroying America society since 1945. To bad they were tossed out of Germany and fled to Brooklyn. Max Horkheimer (1895-1973), Theodor Adorno (1903-1969), Herbert Marcuse (1898-1979), Walter Benjamin (1892-1940), Friedrich Pollock (1894-1970), Leo Lowenthal (1900-1993), Eric Fromm (1900-1980) all part of the gang!
