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

The California Assembly approved a bill today 50-18 that tells churches and other with traditional beliefs about gender and sexual orientation that advocating for their views could get them sued. AB 2943, declares “advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual” is illegal under state’s consumer fraud law. 

“The State of California has no right to deny its residents the resources to help them find happiness or to shut down counselors, schools, and religious organizations that provide those services,” said Jonathan Keller, in response to today’s Assembly vote. “Every person experiencing unwanted same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria must be allowed to pursue help in achieving their desired goals and outcomes."

New Bill to Ban Christian Books and Resources on God's Design for Sexuality Moving Quickly in Sacramento

An effort by the LGBT caucus to stop Christians from offering resources to adults struggling to overcome unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion recently passed through two CA Assembly policy committees. The California Family Council helped coordinate expert committee testimonies that included professional counselors, attorneys, and former homosexuals. (Watch two of our once-gay witnesses, Ken Williams and Elizabeth Wonning, share their view on AB 2943.)
Despite AB 2943's progress through the committee process, there was one good sign last Tuesday, April 10. Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez-Fletcher asked a series of tough questions to the bill author, LGBT Caucus Chair Evan Low, expressing concern with how AB 2943 could ban on church retreats dealing with biblical views homosexuality or transgenderism. (Watchclips of the hearing in the video below. Gonzalez makes her comments starting at the 6:00 min mark)
After receiving an answer from Low's attorney in the Assembly Judiciary Committee, Gonzalez responded, "You actually cause me much concern." Although Gonzalez voted for the bill in committee, she said she wanted to work with the author to explore how this bill might "prohibit a religious institution from practicing their religion...I can't imagine we are trying to step there," she said.

Jehovah is patient with people. He is still giving people time to repent. Some people do dumb stuff. Short-sightedness leads them to believe that a certain course of conduct is "okay" even though it hurts others or themselves.


At a certain point, at Jehovah's appointed time, such wrong conduct will cease.


"When the wicked sprout like weeds

And all the wrongdoers flourish,

It is that they may be annihilated forever."


(Psalm 92:7)


It's not possible for the Devil to win. He's already "dead" "unplugged" from the Source of Life. His time is limited. His days are numbered. Jehovah knows the Devil's "expiration date". Any damage the wicked one does can be undone completely and more than compensated for.


"Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more;

You will look at where they were,

And they will not be there.  

But the meek will possess the earth,

And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace."


(Psalm 37:10,11)


Thankfully we don't have to judge or act as Jehovah's sword. Jesus has that assignment. We just have to keep showing love and hope the ones stuck in la-la land wake up so they can get a blessing.🌷
