California LGBT Anti-Discrimination Opponents Give Up

Jim Burroway

June 24th, 2008

California’s “Save Our Kids” Campaign have announced that they have given up on their efforts to overturn California’s Senate Bill 777. Signed into law by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger last October, SB-777 provides an array of anti-discrimination and anti-bullying protections in California’s schools.

An earlier attempt by opponents to force a referendum fell short, which led them to start a petition drive to put an initiative on the ballot. Now that this effort has failed, the Save Our Kids Campaign has announced that they will instead concentrate on passing a proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage.

This follows similar failures in attempt to roll back anti-discrimination measures in Maine and Oregon.

Nice to see that the fearmongers are running out of steam. (Well they ARE full of hot air)

If we’re lucky, they’ll taker their ball and go home.

So they’re just going to jump on another anti-gay bandwagon instead? Good to know.

Wish they’d give up the anti marriage equality effort, too.

Another thing: these organizations have such Orwellian names about “saving” the “children” or “families” while doing no such thing, in fact hurting actual gay families.

The more they fail, the more actual families and children can thrive.

That the “religious” right for you..They don’t want to give up their “right” to intimidate, harass and bully gay kids in the name of their “beliefs.”
