California Governor Schwarzenegger Signs SB 777
Anti-Family Viewpoint Discrimination Bill

SAN FRANCISCO - "I am honestly shocked that Governor Schwarzenegger signed SB 777, an anti-family viewpoint discrimination bill" said William B. May, Chairman of Catholics for the Common Good. "He vetoed a similar bill last year before the election."

"SB 777 is a bill that will likely promote discrimination and bigotry against people who understand marriage is the foundation of the family that provides children with a mother and father. Thanks to Governor Schwarzenegger, viewpoint discrimination is now enshrined in California law."

"Current law already protects homosexuals, bisexuals and transgendered people from discrimination, but SB 777 will actually lead to the inclusion of advocacy for behaviors and lifestyle choices of protected classes in school instruction and activities when it takes effect in January, 2008."

"The new law is so radical, it deletes the definition of students' sex - the objective reality of being male or female - and replaces it with the subjective construction of gender as determined by students."
