Randy Thomasson

-- Head of the Save California organization

-- Founder of RescueYourChild.com, a site that parents to remove their kids from public schools because those schools are too LGBT-inclusive

 

Facts

-- His organization released a document (later scrubbed) that equated town clerks who had to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples with soldiers who were forced to "gas the Jews"

-- Likened pro-LGBT teachers and school administrators to Adolf Hitler

-- Because of state's LGBT-inclusive policies, Thomasson says California's schoolchildren are like "lambs to the slaughter"

-- After Newtown, said school children were murdered in public schools because of "sin;" added that "love of God" and "fear of God" is the way to stop it

-- Says (at 1:00) that homosexuality is "inherently unhealthy;" adds (1:30-2:40) that homosexuality is "abnormal" but students are being brainwashed to think otherwise

-- Compared same-sex marriages to lying, cheating, stealing, forgery, and more: "Counterfeits always harm society, whether it’s lying or cheating, or a teenager pretending he loves a girl just so she’ll give him sex, or the stealing that banks and other businesses endure, or the false documents that are commonplace in the black market. I am greatly concerned how counterfeit marriages in California and other states will teach children that there’s nothing special about marriage and that homosexual relationships deserve the same honor as marriage, just with a different name."

-- Likens the "lie" of homosexuality to drugs, cigarettes, junk food, drunk driving, and more

-- Equates LGBT-affirming teaching with sexual abuse and car collisions: "If a speeding car was on a collision course with your child, wouldn’t you do all you could to rush to rescue your child? And what if you found out someone was planning to sexually molest your child? Nothing could stop you from rescuing your boy or girl. Think about it. If we are so concerned about the physical safety of children, why wouldn’t we also protect their mental, emotional, and spiritual safety? Realize that the raft of school sexual indoctrination mandates imposed on all children in California government schools amounts to mental molestation"

-- Says LGBT acceptance is "less than animal": "This philosophy essentially turns man into an animal, but less than an animal, because beasts follow God's natural order of sexuality."

-- Says (at :07) that the push for LGBT rights is "unnatural and unhealthy;" equates (at :33) LGBT rights with a "flood coming in"

-- Refers to a certian political party as "the evil Democrats;" calls his pro-LGBT opposition "the powers of evil" (at :29)

-- Says (at :56) that homosexuality is "a hammer against everything that is good and sacred in society"

-- Says the LGBT rights movement promotes a "tsunami of perversity"

-- Said the actress Farrah Fawcett's death was "another sad example of the high price of 'free sex'"
