CA lawmaker: Drop sex offender registry for homosexuals

CA rainbow flagA conservative organization in liberal-run California is keeping a close eye on controversial legislation introduced by a homosexual state assemblyman. 

Senate Bill 145 was introduced by Sen. Scott Wiener to change current state law that requires convicted sex offenders to register if they harmed a person of the same sex, such as as a homosexual man who assaulted a teen.

California law currently gives judges discretion in whether someone in a heterosexual encounter with a minor must register as a sex offender but homosexuals are required to do so.

Arthur Schaper, a spokesman for Mass Resistance, says Sen. Wiener openly pushing for the state to drop the requirement is nothing short of shocking.

"The statistics are just astonishing how much promiscuity there is, not just among homosexual populations in general but how they target minors," Schaper tells OneNewsNow. "Senate Bill 145 is basically pedophile amnesty or basically sex offender amnesty."

On its website, Mass Resistance explains:

Currently in California, if an adult (age 18 or over) has heterosexual relations with a teenager (age 14-17) and the age difference between them is less than 10 years, then the adult is not required to be a registered sex offender. But if the adult has homosexual relations with a teenager, then he is required to be registered as a sex offender. 

Instead of demanding the state drop the permissive 10-year allowance, Sen. Weiner's bill would, for example, allow a 25-year-old man to stay off the sex offender registry if he is convicted of raping a 16-year-old boy.

Mass Resistance helped derail the bill last year but Schaper says it's possible the legislation could gain momentum in the coming weeks in the state assembly.

As a result, Mass Resistance has been "bombarding" offices with phone calls about the bill.

"We feel very confident,” he says, “that we'll be able to prevent this bill from going any further in the state assembly."
