CA Assembly Dismantles “Cure the Gays” Mandate

Jim Burroway

April 27th, 2010

The California Assembly, in a rare unanimous showing, voted to eliminate a 1950 law declaring homosexuality a deviance and requiring the state to conduct research into ways to cure homosexuality. The only group that voiced opposition to the move was the increasingly radical and unbalanced ex-gay organization known as PFOX, which called California’s move to eliminate the mandate “offensive.”

The measure to repeal the mandate now goes to the state Senate.

It’s worth noting that the vote was unanimous. It is further interesting that California was the birthplace of the ex-gay movement.

Yes, this law is so bad even conservative Republicans can’t openly support it! We are making progress!
