The crusade of protecting California’s children from alternative sexual lifestyles is gathering steam – and candidates.
Among the latest is Gregg Imus, a tea party Republican who is now collecting signatures to Stop Senate Bill 48, a new and overbearing law requiring all California school children -- as young as five – to learn about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans.
(I’m not making that up; the new law actually treats people who are willing exchange sexual organs as a protected class worthy of classroom instruction.)
Imus is running for Congress in the new District 8, which was previously part of the district dominated for decades by Redlands Rep. Jerry Lewis. Imus’ name will appear on the June 5 primary ballot for many Inland Empire voters.
Stop SB 48 is not the first time Imus has circulated petitions that Inland Empire residents endorse. He is currently circulating petitions for a part-time legislature, which would restrict state lawmakers to a three-month session versus the nine they currently use to waste taxpayer dollars.
In December, Imus, along with his campaign staff and family, went door-to-door in Redlands circulating petitions in support of the Redlands Tea Party Patriots, then busy fighting the new California law giving in-state tuition to illegal aliens.
Redlands is well outside of Imus’ congressional district; but he cared enough about the cause to give up a Saturday to collect signatures.
If more candidates were like Imus, laws like SB 48 never would have reached Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk.
