The fact that California, the most populated state in the union and the eighth largest economy in the world, just declared Gays and Lesbians are born with their sexual orientation is causing concern among the registered christian hate groups still operating in America.
A Christian social worker is taking exception to a new California law that declares homosexuals are “born gay.”
Beginning this New Year, California will implement AB 2199 and ultimately strike down the requirement on the State Department of Mental Health to conduct research on the “causes and cures of homosexuality.” According to Veronica Esqueda, a renal social worker in Los Angeles, the measure will portray alternate lifestyles as acceptable and normal.
“I do think it’s going to open up their comfort level, and I think it’s going to make it more acceptable,” she explains. “Obviously, I am one that believes that it’s not an error — you are born the way God intended you to be,” she notes, adding that she believes homosexuality is a choice.
California smallAB 2199, sponsored by Equality California, gained the support of homosexual activists who claim it is discriminatory to search for cures for their sexual orientation. Advocates argue that those in the LGBT (lesbian, “gay,” bisexual transgender) community were born to favor alternate lifestyles, so they contend the section of the Welfare and Institutions code is archaic and portrays them as sexual deviants. Esqueda, however, thinks the new law will suppress the Christian voice.
“I believe it is going to impact the conservatives, the Christians, and I think it’s going to basically have a discrimination [effect] against the conservative Christian believer,” she laments. “It’s going to be just another way to silence [their message].”

Apparently Veronica Esqueda has not read the position statement on Gays and Lesbians issued by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), the accrediting body for social workers in the United States.
…The increase in media campaigns, often coupled with coercive messages from family and community members, has created an environment in which lesbians and gay men often are pressured to seek reparative or conversion therapies, which cannot and will not change sexual orientation. Aligned with the American Psychological Association’s (1997) position, NCLGB believes that such treatment potentially can lead to severe emotional damage.
In other words the NASW agrees that sexual orientation is not a choice and hopefully they have recommended suspending Veronica Esqueda until her case load can be fully investigated.
The laws in California are now aligned with every accredited medical, psychological and scientific institution in the United States who agree that homosexuality and heterosexuality are both normal, natural and unchangeable sexual orientations.
The only organizations that do not believe that homosexuality is normal, natural and unchangeable are some marginalized and discredited registered christian hate groups who push agendas of discrimination and violence against the Gay and Lesbian community.
