Major public hearing on radical bills to change society – Massachusetts State House, Tues. July 9.

A preview of what may be coming across the country.
Also: Fighting back with pro-family bills.
But why you shouldn’t bother going to this hearing.
POSTED: July 8, 2013

Radical bills pushing transgenderism, weakening abortion laws, and repealing law against bestiality & laws for public morality!

Many people think that the radical agenda to change our laws would slow down after “gay marriage.” Well, the rest of the country needs to follow what’s happening in Massachusetts. After “gay marriage” comes the intense transgender agenda, extending into the schools. But also comes the push to repeal all laws supporting the moral structure of society, and a further push in particular areas such as abortion.
In Massachusetts this year, the homosexual lobby and the radical left have filed a series of bills to do that. Across the country, it’s up to pro-family groups like MassResistance to step up and stop such bills from passing.
Most of the Massachusetts bills will be taken up at a public hearing this Tuesday, July 9, before the Joint Judiciary Committee at 1 pm in Room A1 in the Massachusetts State House.
Below are the major anti-family bills to be heard:

(A) Repealing the law against bestiality!

Sexual “freedom” is one of the driving forces of the “gay” movement. Back in 2005, the year after “gay marriages” began to be performed in Massachusetts, the homosexual lobby pushed a bill to repeal the bestiality law. (The same bill had also been filed in 2003 as H3357, as the official State House document shows.) But MassResistance (then known as Article 8 Alliance) publicized it, and after nationwide pressure they backed down and the bill died. (See some of our blog coverage from 2005 here.)
This year, after their success with the transgender law, they appear to be ready to try it again. It’s such a bizarre move that it even took us by surprise.
Current Massachusetts law, M.G.L. Ch 272, Sec. 34, describes both homosexuality and bestiality to be an “abominable and detestable crime against nature either with mankind or with a beast.” Similar to the Bible (Lev. 18:22-23) it lists them together.

They actually filed two bills regarding this. Bill H1592 was filed by Rep. Byron Rushing (D-Boston). Bill H1673 was filed by Rep. Chris Walsh (D-Framingham) along with Rep. Denise Provost (D-Somerville) and Rep. Cory Atkins (D-Concord). Both of these bills completely repeal the anti-bestiality / anti-sodomy statute. And just to be sure, both bills also repeal an additional “morality” statute, M.G.L. Ch 272, Sec. 35, regarding “unnatural and lascivious acts.”

(B) Repealing ban on adultery and other traditional public morality

Public condemnation of adultery has long been a target of the Left.
Rep. Walsh’s bill “bestiality bill” H1673 also includes these other repeals of public morality laws, which are duplicated in another bill, H1591, filed by Rushing.
Both of these bills would repeal the statute against adultery. They would also do away with the statutes regarding soliciting in taverns for immoral purposes (i.e., prostitution), public blasphemy, and fornication – which are all considered “out of date” by the Left but have lingered as part of society’s understanding of what holds civilization together. So the Left wants to officially stamp these out.

(C) Repealing the law requiring teaching children about values and virtues

Rep. Walsh is also carrying water for the radical educators. In addition to the above, his bill H1673 would also repeal M.G.L. Ch. 71, Sec. 30. This law once represented the bedrock of children’s education, but has been a thorn in the side of left-wing school officials for decades because parents keep bringing it up. It reads:
. . . [A]ll preceptors and teachers of academies and all other instructors of youth shall exert their best endeavors to impress on the minds of children and youth committed to their care and instruction the principles of piety and justice and a sacred regard for truth, love of their country, humanity and universal benevolence, sobriety, industry and frugality, chastity, moderation and temperance, and those other virtues which are the ornament of human society and the basis upon which a republican constitution is founded; and they shall endeavor to lead their pupils, as their ages and capacities will admit, into a clear understanding of the tendency of the above mentioned virtues to preserve and perfect a republican constitution and secure the blessings of liberty as well as to promote their future happiness, and also to point out to them the evil tendency of the opposite vices.
This is exactly what most parents in America would want to have as state law. But as we have seen so often across the country, the Left wants to purge those values from America’s youth.

(D) Pushing the envelope further on abortion

The Left wants to remove the few important restrictions on abortion that are still in state law.
Bill H1630 was filed by Reps. Ellen Story (D-Amherst) and Byron Rushing (D-Boston), and its Senate counterpart S641 was filed by Sen. Harriett Chandler (D-Worcester).
These identical bills would completely remove the requirements that abortions after 13 weeks of pregnancy be performed in a hospital authorized to provide facilities for general surgery, and that for abortions over 24 weeks it must have facilities for obstetrical services. (This would give Planned Parenthood clinics more business.)
In addition, these bills repeal the law that sets out punishment for people whounlawfully help a woman have a miscarriage by giving her drugs, poisons, or using an instrument. (And these are the people who keep talking about “women’s health.”)

(E) Repealing laws on vagrancy and public begging door-to-door

Some of these bills seem fairly minor, but eat away at quality-of-life issues.
Rushing filed an additional bill, H1593, that would repeal the laws dealing with vagrancy or allowing local police to stop people begging for money door-to-door. and deterring known pick-pockets from mingling in public areas such as railroad stations. The “freedom” of the homeless (many of whom are mentally ill) to be allowed to beg and camp out in public places is important to the Left. But it helps no one, while endangering and fouling our public spaces.

(F) More transgenderism: Outrageous “public accommodations” bill

In Nov. 2011, after a huge, expensive lobbying effort by the homosexual lobby, the Massachusetts Legislature passed the horrific Transgender Rights Bill. This horrible law has already allowed the radical transgender agenda to be pushed in public schools as well as in businesses, corporations, government, and other areas statewide.
Failed pro-family “bathroom bill” strategy. One of the reasons the lobbying effort worked and the bill was able to pass the Legislature involved the deeply flawed strategy used by certain well-funded pro-family groups in Massachusetts and other states. They avoided confronting the insane concept of “transgenderism” and its forced imposition on society. Instead, they called it a “bathroom bill” and claimed (falsely, in fact) that it would allow regular men to go into female restrooms and prey on young girls. The truth is that men dressed as women simply using women’s restrooms — and forcing people to accept them anywhere else — is a bigger problem.
So to deflect the “bathroom bill” charge, the bill’s proponents merely removed the “public accommodations” section of the bill (which includes restrooms), and it sailed through the Legislature. Now the radicals are back with the public accommodations part. They are claiming that since the rest of the transgender rights law “works fine” that it’s now simply a “civil rights” issue to include public accommodations.
The “bathroom” problem isn’t about a threat of children being molested. It’s about the insane concept of “gender identity” — which would force women to share locker rooms and restrooms with men. And forcing everyone to accept the transgenderism-as-reality myth despite reality. That’s what needs to be confronted.

New bill to add public accommodations. Identical versions of this bill have been filed in the House as H1589 by Reps. Byron Rushing (D-Boston) and Carl Sciortino(D-Medford), and in the Senate as S643 by Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz (D-Boston).
Here’s what the transgender “public accommodations” bill includes:
1. All businesses that serve the public. It extends the protections of transgenderism and cross-dressing to every store, restaurant, hotel, business, public transportation, health club, etc. (including restrooms) that serves the public. Violation of such protections and privileges can lead to fines and jail time by business owners.
2. Locker rooms, showers, restrooms, etc. It specifically writes into law that all legally sexually-segregated facilities (such as locker rooms, showers, restrooms, health clubs, etc.) must be open to transgenders. Thus, men dressed as women must be allowed to use women’s facilities and vice versa.
3. “Any place open to the public.” It also applies to hospitals, libraries, churches, museums, government offices, auditoriums (even if event is held by private group renting the space), beaches, parks, sidewalks, playgrounds. In fact, it will include any place but a private home. The legal definition of “public accommodation” in M.G.L. Ch. 272 Sec. 92A is very broad. The law notes a list of places but says it includes but is not limited to that list. This widens its reach to almost any place imaginable.
4. Fines and imprisonment. In any of the above situations, if any person discriminates in any way, or even makes a “distinction” (such as a comment) between transgenders and others, that person can be fined $2500 and/or imprisoned for a year.
5. Fluid definition of “gender identity.” It reiterates the absurd definition of “gender identity”:
“Gender identity” shall mean a person’s gender-related identity, appearance or behavior, whether or not that gender-related identity, appearance or behavior is different from that traditionally associated with the person’s physiology or assigned sex at birth. Gender-related identity may be shown by providing evidence . . . that the gender-related identity is sincerely held as part of a person’s core identity; provided, however, that gender-related identity shall not be asserted for any improper purpose.
6. Allows the radical tribunal, the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, to create further rules and regulations to “enforce” this in businesses and government offices throughout the state.
The homosexual lobby has made this its top priority this year to get this passed. We think this can be stopped with a lot of hard work. Unfortunately, we’re up against their “civil rights” momentum. We wish everyone had used the right strategies to stop this whole thing two years ago.
In 2010, these menharassed a Peabody, Mass., restaurant that was uncomfortable with them coming in and shocking the patrons. If this new bill passes, they’ll be able to have the restaurant fined and the owner jailed unless it complies.

Fighting back: Important pro-family bills filed by MassResistance and others also at Tuesday’s public hearing.

There are several important pro-family bills filed and others that are being heard on Tuesday:
1. Repeal the Transgender law. H1479 filed by Rep. James Lyons (R-Andover) and Marc Lombardo (R-Billerica). This would completely repeal the odious transgender rights law passed in 2011. This is probably the most important pro-family bill being heard that day. [This is a variation of a bill submitted by MassResistance.]
2. Repeal the Buffer Zone. H1478. Filed by Marc Lombardo (R-Billerica). (MassResistance) This bill repeals the “buffer zone” around abortion clinics. [NOTE: There is also a case before the US Supreme Court on this, which we will be covering in an upcoming email.]
The outrageous and unconstitu-tional “buffer zone” law often forces pro-life people to stand in the street, behind a line. This is in Brookline, MA.

3. Prohibit partial birth abortions. Bill H1452 filed by Reps. Kevin Kuros (R-Uxbridge) and Rep. Eliz. Poirier (R-N.Attleboro). Unfortunately, this is needed.
4. “Women’s right to know bill.” Bill H1565 filed by Rep. Eliz. Poirier (R-N.Attleboro). Known as “Laura’s Law,” this would require abortion clinics to give a woman seeking an abortion detailed information about the nature and risks of abortion, and an ultrasound image of her child.
5. Prohibit abortions for purposes of sex selection. Bill H1567 filed Rep. Eliz. Poirier (R-N.Attleboro)
6. Makes it a crime to injure or kill a fetus — except in abortions. Bill H1404Rep. Bradley Jones (R-North Reading) This is an odd bill. It would criminalize acts against a woman which cause bodily injury or death of her fetus. But it specifically does NOT apply in cases of an abortion that does the same thing.
7. Re-defining “gender identity” for restrooms, etc. Bill H1354 Rep. Colleen Garry (D-Dracut). This would change the meaning of “gender identity” for all sex-segregated facilities and public accommodations to mean “an individual’s anatomical sex of male or female” In other words, in this one narrow situation, citizens would be allowed to use common sense. This doesn’t solve the overall transgender law problem, but it’s certainly a start. It’s interesting that a Democrat is filing this one! [Sadly, we can also envision a loophole: "Post-operative" transgenders could claim that they ARE anatomically the sex they've had surgically created!]
It’s important that pro-family activists not back down, but rather push just as hard!

It’s the State House event from hell: Why you should probably NOT go to Tuesday’s public hearing to testify.

Joint Judiciary Committee Public Hearing
Date: Tuesday, July 9
Time: 1:00 pm
Place. Massachusetts State House, Room 1A (adjoined with Room 1B)
We will be there. But as important as this hearing is, most people should probably not bother going to testify. Unless you have a lot of time to spend, the odds are you’ll never get to speak.

An impossibly large agenda that day

The official agenda for that hearing shows 209 bills being heard. That is insane. The average public hearing has around 15-30 bills, usually covering a few topics. And besides the topics we listed here, there are bills regarding a wide range of very contentious topics. (This is just another sign that our governmental system is failing us, and the people’s voices are purposely being shut out.)

In 2009 the Judiciary Committee crammed 237 bills into one hearing. This was the scene as the hearing began. By 10:30 pm, just about everyone had left. [MassResistance photo]
Topics of the 209 bills being heard in this hearing include: Restraining orders, domestic violence, witness intimidation, assault and battery, emergency disaster victims, heroin trafficking, corporate criminal conduct, crimes against the elderly, access to criminal records, abuse of animals, violations of hunting laws, protection of police officers, safety in courthouses, missing children, HIV testing in prisons, enforcement of laws regarding illegal immigrants, sentencing for gang-related crimes, updating the wiretapping law, enforcement of marijuana laws, credit card fraud, organized crime, reinstituting capital punishment, classification of controlled substances, protection of sources of news reporters, assault of public employees, illegal sale of tattooing devices, and more. Also, the ACLU has filed a major billregarding the protection of online privacy.
In addition to pro-family groups and the ACLU crowd, many of these bills have their own sizeable constituencies or special interests affected by them, besides just the people filing them. If only five minutes were devoted to each bill (an unbelievably low figure) it would take over 17 hours to get through it. A more realistic figure would be a minimum of 30-40 hours to get through it all properly. And public officials are allowed to testify whenever they walk in, and are given as much time as they desire, while mere “citizens” have to wait until they’re called by the Chairman and are usually limited to 3-5 minutes.
On top of that, both the House and Senate Chairmen of the Judiciary Committeehave histories of animus against the pro-family position. Our side consistently is made to wait until the end to testify. We’ve had Judicial Committee hearings where pro-family people waited almost until nearly 11 pm to testify, after the “gay” contingents had testified on the same bills nearly eight hours earlier.
In fact, the hearing will start at 1 pm and people will be signed up to speak. But by 10 pm almost everyone will have given up and left. The few pro-family stragglers and others will finally get to testify. That’s how it always works.

Why do they do this?

Why does the Judiciary cram an impossibly large number of bills into one afternoon’s public hearing?
From time to time various committees will knowingly do this, especially with bills regarding the “culture war” or other topics that they would like to avoid but know will draw a big crowd. For example, in 2009, the Judiciary Committee scheduled 237 bills into one hearing that also included an earlier “transgender bill” attempt and similar “culture war” bills.
After nearly 20 years of watching the Legislature, it’s not hard to figure this out. To Massachusetts legislators, public hearings are a dreary, boring formality. Much of the time, only the committee chairmen actually stay until the end. Occasionally there are some unusual topics where they are interested in the testimony, facts, and reasoned arguments.
But in this case, the bills and topics are completely on the other end of that spectrum: The committee’s not interested in them, they’ve already made up their minds (or they’ve been told what to do by the leadership), they don’t care to hear what the public thinks, and they simply want to get it over with. So they create a circus where the vast majority of people come promptly and sign up to speak, but end up leaving after hours and hours of waiting. Meanwhile, the committee chairmen pick and choose who gets to testify — usually their political allies and the public officials who show up. There’s no shortage of arrogance and condescending attitudes in most State Houses.

    1. if adultery is outlawed it won't matter whether bestiality is viewed as adultery in the eyes of the people, will it? However, it will still be viewed as abomination in the eyes of God. Sooo many people heaping up wrath for themselves in the day of Judgement.

  3. Guys, why not be honest here. They are repealing a law that made both homosexuality and bestiality illegal. Is it possible -- just possible -- that they were targeting the anti-gay part of the law and didn't really care about bestiality? After all, it was the straight lawmakers that basically said one was as bad as the other.

    1. A quick addendum: this law was written in 1697. Is it just possible that a 300 year old law may need some...fine tuning?

    2. If the law of God, which was instituted before time began, will stand to the end of time (and that is the law all state and federal laws were based on in the beginning, what makes you think the state and federal laws need 'fine tuning' just because they are a few hundred years old? "Jesus Christ, the same today, yesterday, and FOREVER."

  5. if anyone took the time to actually research the bills mentioned here, you'd find that they, in fact, do NOT relate to the issues that this article claims that they do. ex: bill H.3357 is relative to the capital investment fund of the town of Sterling not the repeal of bestiality.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The article actually says, "The same bill had also been filed in 2003 as H3357, as the official State House document shows." So, if you were to do a current search for bill H3357, that's what you would find. If you follow the links of the other bills that they reference (or simply do your own search for them), they take you to the MA Legislature website, and each one lists the laws they are attempting to repeal. You can then look up the laws that are referenced and see what they are repealing. Maybe if you took the time to actually research all the bills mentioned and not just cherry-pick one that is obviously outdated (as stated by the article that it was a bill from 2003), you'd find that they DO relate the issues.

      Perhaps it's true that they don't want to repeal the beastiality part, but all the bill states is that they want the law repealed.

  6. Reading the Bills help a bit. The person that wrote this has the mental capacity of a hamster.

    1. Analogous vs. Digital. Too many hamsters at high places, defecating on society's norms. When society realizes all this crap falling on them, maybe they'll do something about it. Hamsters are fun but not too bright, staying up late nights, spinning their wheels and not even able to balance (the budget). Why do we maintain and feed these hamsters? Analogous has many shades between white and black while digital is only about the one or the other. I'm analogous and live in a world of color, and opinions, not a bleak 1 or 0. There always exists a perhaps, or a maybe between the yes/no digitization of humanity. We are people not machines after all. A man made machine is quite capable of repeating the problem as it doesn't think for itself. Similarly, people become programmed to function like machines, without feelings of empathy, sincere concern for other individuals. Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. VD and HIV to all immoral people. May you find your peace soon.

  9. Good thing I don't live there [Mass]. The first person I ever see having sex with an animal is going to wish they hadn't been born. What a bunch of sick s.o.b.'s. I don't care who you are either, if I am in the Ladies room and you stand up to relieve yourself, you can bet you're going to be sitting down the next time you have to go. Yeah, you have rights, but NOT when they infringe on the rights of others. I do not have to tolerate or accept you. I do not have to associate with you - that is MY right. I don't care what you do in the privacy of your own home [unless you are doing it with minor children and/or animals] but you sure as hell aren't going to ram it down my throat. You're only looking for attention [case in point, showing up at restaurants that you know don't want you there. Why not open your own restaurants, shops, etc where you can be comfortable "amongst your own". Why do you insist on subjecting anyone and everyone to your lifestyle? You infringe on MY rights, you can bet your sexually confused ass that I am going to infringe on yours.

  11. Why do men want to go into women bathroom? Even if men who dress like women identify with real women do not give them the rights to see us in undress especially if they still have the object that men carries between their legs. This united States of America is going mad! Parents do not allow your children to enter bathrooms in any public facilities alone! What's to stop a child molester, and or rapist from putting on female garments and entering a woman's bathroom and doing what comes natural to them. As for bestiality...nasty. This country was a bless country but it is falling fast. "When they came for all the other groups we said nothing...they have the right, but now they are coming after your rights what you going to do"

  12. Did anyone else notice what is NOT in this article? There is NOTHING, NO THING, about polygamy. Plural marriage. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero.

    Do you know WHY?

    Why it's OK to be an adulterer, but not OK to have two or three wives?

    I just wonder, how many other members of congress have "one on the side", so to speak. Remember Monica and Gennifer, Clinton's little adulterees?

    Well, he sure as shot would not want polygamy to be legalized, now, would he? Because that gives women a lot of power that men don't want them to have. All these women would have to do is tell Billy boy, hey, if you like it, you better put a ring on it! Everyone knows mistresses are much cheaper than wives!

    So, don't believe all the moral outrage about polygamy. At least these men are taking responsibility. But, it's much easier to ignore adultery. Everyone knows that marriage means SEX! If they aren't married, then they aren't having sex, it's that simple. (to those with simple minds, IMHO)

  13. I'm surprised furries haven't been mentioned in this article. Good thing too, because I am one.

    I really wish that plural marriage was being pushed right now. That's a far more sensible bill to push than to ban beastiality! Beastiality is atrocious and disgusting. People have died from such actions. The fact that something like this exists proves that we live around some TWISTED people. I won't bring up the religious facts, as the church should never be a part of the government, but the fact that something like this is being pushed at all? I'm ashamed and appalled!

    It's like that petition that was circulating the internet a few months ago trying to ban furries, saying that all we do is get involved in massive orgies and "will come after our animals." True there are some people that might do that. I've seen the news. However I had never heard of them prior to these events, and they are in no sense in common in the furry fandom.

    So I loop back. Beastiality is horribly disgusting and to see that people are trying to legalize it is sad. I hope this never goes through.

  14. Excuse my ignorance, Austin Anders, but would you please define 'furry fandom'. Thanks~

  15. Yea.. do some research into the sourcing before taking this garbage as truth. Beastiality will remain illegal according to the legislation.
