AB 2943 bans books, conferences, counseling advocating Muslim, Jewish, and Christian views on gender and sexual orientation!

‘Communist’ California never stops and it is always a shock but never quite unexpected when the Democrats and like-minded liberals have another brain storm that votes to impinge upon our First Amendment Rights and cross the separation of church and state to the point that it actually crosses out any faith’s right to speak on the particular subject chosen by the California government. It is quite unsettling to find that the government wants to take total control of every person’s choice and prevent any kind of counseling, even if wanted, by anyone looking for insight and a change that goes against the government’s high-handed grab of individual rights and choices.

The California Assembly approved a bill (50-18) which forbids churches, faith groups, and counselors offering or helping those who seek their assistance in sexual orientation change counseling. This disastrous bill would make it totally illegal under the State of California’s consumer fraud law. EVEN, if a grown person, of their own volition went to his or her pastor, minister, counselor, etc., wanting to discuss or seek help for feelings in their sexuality that they aren’t comfortable with, it’s against the law for them to find help. However, if they went to get hormone treatment, advice, surgery, no problem and don’t worry about anyone doing any psychiatric analysis to see if this is a well-thought out feeling or the result of some mental trauma that might need sorting out. Already, licensed therapists are forbidden to help minors who seek help for unwanted same-sex attractions.

And such a bill could have even more far-reaching implications to everyone. Some say that if the citizens are not allowed to speak against such help or counseling, what about the Bible? The Bible is pretty clear so will that book along with many others join in the legal book burning peering over the ever growing mountain of legal intrusions into the ordinary citizen’s life?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. FIRST AMENDMENT

Our world is a daily war with politics. The representatives elected to office are only representing either the lining of their own pockets, personal circumstances, or seeing how much further they can destroy the freedoms this state and our country was successfully built upon. Already, the governor of California (an ex-Jesuit seminarian and, to all intents and purposes given his actions as governor, a fallen-away Catholic) plans to sign the bill once it goes through the last of the required actions and votes. I guess that jeopardizing the business climate in California along with the unneeded taxes, and laws are not enough. Now, he wants the government to burst into every home, church, synagogue, faith group, and mosque to insure that all ways are at the beck and call of a group of people with only their welfare in mind. And, I don’t imagine the conscience-free lawmakers who came up with this travesty of justice will rest if this Bill passes. It will just open things up for more and more control of every aspect of our lives until (to paraphrase Alice In Wonderland), “All ways are our ways”!

Why Is ERA Bad for Women, Children and Families?

If ERA passes things like co-ed bathrooms in your children’s school, locker room and even your church will become law. Notice the wording of ERA below.  It doesn’t say “women” anywhere, it says “sex” which, in today’s culture, can mean anything.

Equality Rights Amendment

  • Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
  • Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
  • Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.

Myths & Facts About ERA

American’s Women Are Being Lied To!  Check Out These Myths and Facts of ERA and the dangers it poses to women and children.

Myth: Women’s rights are not protected under the constitution.

FACT:  Women’s Rights are Already Protected. The U.S. Supreme Court has already ruled that the Equal Protection mandate of the 14th Amendment applies to women. ERA actually violates the constitution giving special privileges to some while denying the rights of others.

Myth: ERA Protects Women’s Rights

FACT: ERA Infringes on Women’s Rights Under ERA women that are dependent on their husbands would lose social security benefits.Programs that assist women to re-enter the work force would be eliminated, and invalidate the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and other laws that protect pregnant women.

Myth: ERA Protects Women

FACT: ERA Erases Gender and Endangers Women. ERA eliminates privacy for women in our hospitals, bathrooms, locker rooms, nursing homes, prisons and even domestic violence shelters.  The military could not have different training standards for men or women and in the event of war with a draft, the draft would have to apply to women as well as men. ERA would not allow exceptions for privacy in these areas, as all would become unisex.

Myth: ERA creates equality

FACT: ERA erases gender and endangers women and children. Under ERA.  Coed bathrooms, showers and locker rooms in our children’s schools will become mandatory—enforced by law. All sports activities would become co-ed, leaving an unfair advantage to men competing against women.

FACT: Equal pay already exists for women. Equal pay for Equal work and discrimination in the workplace laws already exist for all Americans—men and women. It is the law, exclusive to no one regardless of race, religion, or gender.

Myth: ERA creates equality for next generation

FACT: ERA Endangers Children If ERA becomes law, gender identification (see Gender-Bread flyer), homosexuality, and comprehensive Sex education will become mandatory curriculum and courses of study in our children’s classrooms at all grade levels. ERA would overrule states and mandate, by order of the courts, that taxpayers fund abortion on demand—literally killing the next generation!

Myth: ERA has no secret agenda

FACT: ERA Endangers Religious Freedoms. Under ERA churches would be required to perform same sex marriages and all seminaries, schools, and classes would be required coed.

America – Land of Fear That Preys on Freedom?

So, exactly what damage was done in offering something on history in a college that should be teaching that very same history? The cost of college tuition is way too expensive for ‘learning’ experience like this.

Jerusalem, Capital of Israel – 2018!

May of 2018 was a momentous year for both Israel and the United States. It was the 70th Anniversary of the founding of Israel and the fulfillment of a long ago made promise to Israel to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem.

Jerusalem has historically been a matter of concern which divided the Jews and Arabs. The United Nations wanted the City of Jerusalem made an international city but Israel declared statehood in 1948. The result of the war in 1967 was Israel winning control of East Jerusalem thus unifying the city and considering it the capital. Because of the controversy, The United States and many other countries kept their embassies in Tel Aviv and refused to recognize Jerusalem as the capital.

Dealing with the situation became an unfulfilled campaign promise during presidential elections. Both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush vowed to move the United State Embassy to Jerusalem but didn’t follow through. However, in 1995, the US Congress passed a law declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and said the US Embassy would be moved there by 1999. BUT, politicians always provide loopholes to explain away their final decisions and this Congressional law gave subsequent presidents six months into office to determine whether our embassy move to Jerusalem was in our best interest. Clinton, Bush and Obama all signed waivers declining the move fearing violence from the Arab world if such a move was implemented.

Regardless of what people may think about President Trump, he keeps campaign promises so we all witnessed an extraordinary event in world history this month.

An interesting aspect to the whole embassy move again showed President Trump’s care for our country. Initially, the cost for building a new embassy would have been expensive to say the least. It came to his attention that the US already owns property in Jerusalem that would adapt perfectly for the new embassy and save the American taxpayers millions and millions of dollars. The first phase of getting the US Embassy in working order was $400,000.

Anyone interested in reading about how Israel came about, EXODUS by Leon Uris is a great read. The characters are fictional but the events are correct and really opens one’s eyes to what went on in the Jewish world from the onset of World War II, Hitler’s horrendous campaign to the Jews, and the beginning of Israel. It is a long read but seems short as you keep wanting to know ‘what comes next’!
