CA State Assembly Smackdown!

On the same day South Africa granted same sex couples access to the rights opposite sex couples have under legal matrimony, California assembly members got into a shouting match about the "homosexual agenda". While trying to decide if domestic partners can file joint tax returns like married partners. Some excerpts directed at colleagues:

Assemblyman Jay La Suer, R-La Mesa, called the measure "part of the homosexual agenda." He said it would negatively affect California's children by teaching them "that this is an acceptable lifestyle."
...efforts to bring the discussion back to the specifics of the bill were thwarted by an outburst from Assemblyman Dennis Mountjoy, R-Monrovia. "But your lifestyle is abnormal. It is sexually deviant."

No F-bombs were reported. This argument actually has a kernal of brilliance. Save California schools by charging a state wide sexual deviance tax! If the definition of deviance included everything outside of the missionary position between two opposite sex married adults, California could have the wealthiest schools in the world.
