The LGBQ community began their movement decades ago, in the 1940s. In the 1980s the movement took off in earnest with TV and movies displaying homosexuals as sympathetic victims. We were urged to be tolerant in the face of an oppressed minority. Bills in the New Mexico Legislature were passed that required the “acceptance” of an oppressed minority. We were disallowed counseling a gender-confused child for example.
Yesterday HB 7 cleared the Senate. We as a state have gone from sympathy to tolerance to now, affirming homosexuality. If we fail to affirm the penalty is a $5,000 fine. All this is being done in the guise of health.
The bill also insures that no county can ban abortion and that any child seeking an abortion or sex change must be affirmed.
HB 7 returns to the House for “concurrence,” that is to clean up language differences between the House and Senate versions, then to the Governor for signature.
