Archbishop Gomez Urges Rejection Of Vaccination, Gay-Textbook Bills

"Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles has called upon California lawmakers to reject two bills that “represent a dangerous government intrusion into parents’ rights.”

The first would permit children 12 or over to obtain the HPV vaccination and treatment related to sexually transmitted diseases without parental consent. “By passing this bill, in effect, government would be encouraging young people to engage in activities that are contrary to their parents’ moral values--and then to lie about it or keep it secret from their parents,” said Archbishop Gomez.

The second bill, which has passed the legislature and awaits the governor’s signature, requires schools to use textbooks that “accurately portray” the “contributions” of “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans.”"
