It appears that Minnesota Democrats want pedophilia to be a legitimate sexual orientation.
This week, Democrat leaders assigned ONLY Democrats to the Public Safety Omnibus conference committee to decide the final language of the massive Public Safety Omnibus bill. Usually, members of both parties get to participate in the final crafting of language.
The final bill, which will soon come up for a vote in the Democrat controlled House and Senate, contains insane language that protects "sexual attachment to children by an adult" while removing language that identified pedophilia as "not a protected class."
Here's the backstory. HF447, the House Civil Law Policy Bill, was debated and passed on April 26th. That bill had a section in it which got rid of current Minnesota law that stated "sexual orientation does not include a physical or sexual attachment to children by an adult." In other words, the passage of the bill with that language intact, would allow courts and others to interpret pedophilia as a legitimate sexual orientation.
House Republicans argued that Democrats were trying to validate pedophilia so they offered an amendment that read, "The physical or sexual attachment to children by an adult is not a protected class under this chapter." That amendment received unanimous support by both Parties and the final bill was passed with full Democrat support.
However, in the Democrat controlled conference committee last night, HF447 got put into the even larger, unconstitutional omnibus bill, SF2909, and the language of the Republican amendment was removed. If passed, the bill would once again allow courts and others to interpret pedophilia as a valid sexual orientation.
Here's the side by side comparison of the conference committee report. On the left side, the highlighted text is the previous version of the bill that specifies pedophilia is "not a protected class." On the right side, the language is removed in the final omnibus bill that could receive a vote as soon as this evening.
Thanks to our supporters, we have a full time team that keeps an eye on what's happening in St Paul. When news like this breaks, we'll bring it to you as soon as possible. Also in this gigantic omnibus bill, Democrats put in the radical gun control legislation they're too afraid to pass in the Senate as a stand alone bill.
If the bill passes, not only will pedophilia be considered a legitimate "sexual orientation", but your right to keep and bear arms will be infringed by crony politicians. Tell your legislator to vote NO on the Public Safety omnibus bill!
