California Senate Tells Religious Leaders to Embrace LGBTQ, Dump Conversion Therapy
Watch out for the falling other shoe. People who told us that we, conservatives, were all kinds of crazy for suggesting the LGBTQ marriage agenda was a slope slicked with KY Jelly can go suck on a dildo. We knew the agenda would one day affect us all, no matter what the Gaystapo insisted as they pointed their phallic pistols at our heads while Christians were forced to bake cakes. Well here it is. The California State Senate has passed a resolution forcing religious leaders to accept the LGBTQ's agenda. How? Clergy and churches can no longer offer "conversion therapy" or just "COUNSELING" about being homosexual. Even if the homosexual is the one voluntarily seeking the counseling!
Assembly Concurrent Resolution 99 (ACR-99) was introduced by Democratic state Assemblyman Evan Low of San Jose on June 4 as a way to gather support for LGBTQ identity and behaviors.
Many Christian demoninations, if not all, hold that homosexual behavior is a sin. As far as I know, so does Islam. The resolution's summary reads:
This measure would call upon all Californians to embrace the individual and social benefits of family and community acceptance, upon religious leaders to counsel on LGBTQ matters from a place of love, compassion, and knowledge of the psychological and other harms of conversion therapy, and upon the people of California and the institutions of California with great moral influence to model equitable treatment of all people of the state.
Conversion therapy has a certain negative sound to it, like a gay person being strapped into a gurney and forced to watch Jennifer Lawerence making out with Chris Evans. I dunno, best example I could think of on short notice. But really, conversion therapy, for the most part, occurs when an LGBTQ leaning person may not want to lean LGBTQ for [whatever reason, it doesn't actually matter, their life, their choice], and seeks a religious leader for help. Also known as COUNSELING. Like sitting in a room and TALKING.
How this resolution will be enforced is yet to be seen.
Religious leaders offer counseling on a number of matters, not just gay ones, by the way. If a person doesn't want to be gay, shouldn't they be allowed to make the choice? Further, whatever happened to the precious separation of church and state the left has harped on about since Eve told Adam to eat the damn fruit? How is this new California resolution not in violation of religious liberty?
Yes, right now this is limited to California. But how soon before it's imported into another state. Like yours?
