Watchwoman: Why is California looking to make a law that a child can have more than two parents (SB1476 )? Note that several other states, including Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maine and the District of Columbia, recognize more than two parents. God save us from these evildoers and evil lawmakers! Satan wants to destroy the Family That God Created! Satan wants to destroy traditional-Biblical-based marriage that the Church says is between one woman and one man because God has declared it to be so. Satan has to destroy the ties of one generation to the next so that parents cannot pass on the faith to their children. Satan hates every thing and any thing that God created — and God created ALL THINGS including the family! Satan wants to destroy the USA because our very foundation, the US Constitution, is based upon God’s Law Word. Satan wants to destroy pre-born life so God’s Creations never even get to draw their first breath. Satan wants to destroy music because it is used to glorify and praise God, that’s why we have nothing but pigs and whores in the music industry. Satan wants to ensure that the entertainment industry is nothing but sin-filled ugliness so that it is never used to pass on the Gospel Message of Peace with God through the Redeemer Jesus Christ. If you can think of it, Satan wants to destroy it because Jesus Christ created all things! And Satan hated Jesus first, so that is why he hates you and me, because we love and serve Jesus! — [Colossians 1:16] For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. — Ultimately Satan wants to destroy the Church and God’s Word, the Bible, and he goes around like a roaring lion attempting to devour each and every good thing on planet earth, including the family, that consists of one man, one woman, married by a pastor in the true church of Jesus Christ, and their children. Satan hates the family. He must see it destroyed and if YOU ARE NOT WORKING TO PRESERVE THE FAMILY, then you are doing the work of Satan! There is no neutrality. You are either for Jesus Christ or you are against Him and for Satan, and hell bound — I don’t care whether you believe you are a loving Christian doing the sweetest and most civil of good works. If you are not hated by the world, then the world loves you because you are serving the prince of this world, Satan. If you buy into the “judge not” and the gospel of false “love,” then you belong to Satan and are serving him, not Jesus Christ! Repent and be saved now. Change your world view or die in your sins and transgression. If Satan could deceive Eve, do you not think he can deceive you? She was sinless and she couldn’t resist Satan, but people today are convinced they can because they declare themselves to be Christians. They are not Christians. They are deceived and know not the Gospel Message. They attempt to adjust the Word of God to suit them. They say, “My God wouldn’t do this or that.” They make up their own laws. They decide what God said and refuse to adhere to the real words of God! They call sin good and good evil. They are ignorant and they are perishing in their ignorance. Get rid of your puffed up self-righteous esteem and your arrogance that is taking you to hell and repent! Before it is too late! — [Proverbs 16:18] Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. — If you think that this message is one of hate, you’re hell bound!
Read, Repent and be saved.

California, the battleground state for the arguments for and against same-sex marriage, is now considering an unconventional law that would allow children to be legally granted more than two parents.
The bill — SB1476 — would apply equally to men and women, and to homosexual or heterosexual relationships. Proposed by State Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, it has passed the Senate and awaits an Assembly vote.
Leno cites the evolving American family, which includes surrogacy arrangements, same-sex marriages and reproductive techniques that involve multiple individuals.
“The bill brings California into the 21st century, recognizing that there are more than ‘Ozzie and Harriet’ families today,” Leno told the Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco.” target=”external”>Sacramento Bee, which first reported the story.
Leno told ABCNews.com that he recognized a “problem” in the legal system in 2011 when an appellate court placed a girl in foster care when her legally married parents — two lesbians — could not care for her.
The child was taken into state custody when one of her mothers was jailed and the nonbiological mother was hospitalized.
The court did not have the authority to appoint the girl’s biological father, with whom she had a relationship, as a legal parent. That third parent could have “benefitted the well-being of the child,” said Leno.
“We are not touching the definition of a parent under the current law,” said Leno. “When a judge recognizes that a child is likely to find his or her way into foster care and if there is an existing parent who qualifies as a legal parent, why not have the law when it is required to protect the well-being of the child?”
Parents would have to qualify under all legal standards and agree on custody, visitation and child support before a judge could divide up responsibilities.
Several other states, including Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maine and the District of Columbia, recognize more than two parents.
“Most children have at most two parents, but some children have more than two people in their lives who have been a child’s parent in every way,” says Leno in his fact sheet on the bill. “For example, a child raised from birth by a biological mother and a non-biological father may also have a relationship with his or her biological father.
“In such a situation, the child may consider both adults in the home to be parents, as well as his or her biological father. In such a case, it may be in the child’s best interests to have a legally protected relationship with all three of the parental figures in his or her life.”
Glenn T. Stanton, director of Global Family Formation Studies for the conservative group Focus on the Family, argues that the bill appears to advocate for children’s rights, but in reality gives adults legal protection to create “radical families.”
“We hear all this celebratory talk about ‘new families,’ but there is no sociological, psychological or medical data showing any of these new family forms have served to the elevate the general physical, mental, educational or developmental well-being of children in any meaningful way,” said Stanton.
“That job is best done for children by their own mother and father,” he said. “And this bill would only take us farther down the trail of more ‘experimental families’ that fulfill adult desires, but consistently fail our children.”
But Leno argues that a new law would address more than just same-sex families, including one in which a man raises a nonbiological child with a woman, but the child also has a relationship with the biological father.
A lesbian couple, for example, might also want to include a male friend who provided sperm for the conception of their child as a legal parent.
Leno maintains that it is in the best interest of a child to designate multiple parents to provide financial support, health insurance and other state benefits.
Not to do so can have “disastrous emotional, psychological, and financial consequences for the child,” according to Leno.
Adoptive Families Might Use Law
Such a law might serve not only same-sex families, but adoptive ones as well, where there may be a relationship with a biological parent.
However, Adam Pertman, executive director of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute, said situations where the law might be applicable are “pretty limited.”
“Most people don’t aim for this and don’t need it,” he said. “It’s an arrangement that’s created for specific circumstances — but I don’t see a big trend here.”
“People in the adoption world get very concerned about a law like this,” said Pertman. “One of the concerns they have about open adoptions is co-parenting and it simply is not. There are circumstances where there is a real need and individual cases where it serves the needs of the child. That should be the focus, to have a law that permits the child to get what he or she needs.”
And some legal experts in California question the impact of such a law on an array of issues like tax deductions and wrongful death suits.
Leno acknowledges that the law might be applied in “rare circumstances” and only when it is required “for the best interests of the child.”
“Some of the hyperbolic corners of the opposition are suggesting there could be four, six or eight parents,” he said. “But I think that it will not be used when a child has too many parents, but when there are too few.”
The bill was co-sponsored by the University of San Diego School of Law’s Children’s Advocacy Institute and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
