Calif. Senate Passes Gay 'Conversion Therapy' Ban; Religious Liberty Threatened
California's Senate has passed a controversial bill that labels as fraud any business or goods that advance sexual orientation change efforts therapy, advancing proposed legislation critics say will curb religious freedom in the state.
In a party-line vote of 25-11 in which no Republicans voted in favor, the state Senate approved on Thursday Assembly Bill 2943, sending it to the Assembly for a concurrence vote.
Democrat Assemblyman Evan Low, sponsor of the bill and chair of the of the California Legislative LGBT Caucus, released a statement Thursday celebrating the vote....
""All Californians should be celebrated, cherished, and loved for who they are," stated Assemblyman Low.""
How is sending people to hell and damnation "loving" them??
Satan's California making its evil intentions known again.
Jude:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities."
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves."
To borrow a phrase from Paul Washer: "When a man (or mankind I would add) defies Christ it is like a gnat beating its head against a giant wall of granite." What a shame that the California Senate is filled with such gnats. It's time for christians in California to get much louder about the biblical view of sexuality. Much thanks to Michael Brown for his thoughts on the issue. The time has indeed come for civil disobedience.
