Target: Randy Thomasson, President of Save California
Goal: Cease attempts to wipe out homosexuality both in California and worldwide
A hate group called Save California has reared its ugly head in California. Founded by Randy Thomasson in 1999, the organization is steadily attempting to inform the public about the “dangers” of homosexuality by means of protests and appealing to the state government. The group itself is incredibly vague when it comes to defining its goals, but the point is driven home when Thomasson suggests the organization is “challenging liberal forces whenever they attack moral virtue,” and “teaching and empowering folks to stand for what’s right in God’s sight.” Save California’s message is clear: they want to eliminate homosexuality completely.
Perhaps the most laughably incorrect section of Save California’s website is a page titled, “Not Born This Way”. The page posts “research” that suggests being gay is, in fact, a choice. It also declares that the gay lifestyle is unhealthy, offers links that depict the causes of homosexuality, and posts stories from “formal homosexuals” in the hopes that they will persuade readers that homosexuality is a crime that must be fought.
One of Save California’s slogans is “standing strong for moral virtues for the common good.” Sign the petition now to inform Randy Thomasson and his group that their claims are incorrect, and stand strong for the true common good that Save California is determinedly overlooking: the virtue of tolerance.
Dear Randy Thomasson,
I write in response to your stance on homosexuality and your resolve to spread certain “truths” to the public regarding this topic. You imply through your organization called “Save California” that both California and the rest of the United States need saving. I would agree with this fact but amend it to say that they need saving from people like you.
You state that homosexuality is not healthy and that it is not something one is born with. Both statements are undeniably false. Sexual orientation is not a choice, for if it were, when did you actively choose to be heterosexual? Children are known to exhibit homosexual behavior at an early age just as “straight” children often show their affections for members of the opposite sex. Certain factors do not persuade them one way or the other, as much as you would like to believe so.
In addition, millions of gay Americans live happy lives and are far healthier than the angry people who claim homosexuals are abnormal. Thousands of homosexual couples have been together for many years, many of which raise emotionally and physically healthy children.
Please do not suggest that you stand for religious freedom because if you did, you would understand that the United States does not abide by the Bible but rather the Constitution, a document that does not mention homosexuality in any way. You do not speak the truth, and you should be ashamed that you claim to do so. I urge you to please correct your false statements, and cease your attempts to wipe out homosexuality in both California and the rest of the world. You have every right to disagree with the homosexual lifestyle; however, you do not have the right to condemn it.
