Help Veto SB145
By Pastor Ted Goslen
Last week, our state senate passed SB-145 and sent it to the desk of Gavin Newsom for his signature. The bill gives judges the option to not place offenders who have had oral/anal sex with a minor on the Sexual Offenders list provided:
1. The minor consented
2. The offender is within ten years of age of the minor
I am dumbfounded that our state would remove protection from our children. Newsom has made all of our schools use distance learning to protect our children, but he would sign away this protection. Our last hope is to convince Newsom to veto this bill. It only takes 15 seconds to send a message to him. Go to www.gov.ca.gov and click on the "Contact" button. Follow the prompts and you can send a msessage quickly to him. We need to speak up now or we will continue to see our state slide into a cesspool. I have two children who are minors and would appreciate you speaking your opposition to this bill for their sake.
The vote in the Senate to pass the bill was along party lines with all Democrats voting in favor of the bill and Republicans voting against it. The Democrats have a super majority, so they can override the veto, but we need to do our part by having our voices heard.
Thanks for taking the time to do this.
