    CBN NEWS – California Senate passed a resolution telling Christian clergy to accept and support LGBTQ ideology, even if doing so violates their Christian beliefs.

    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.

    The resolution also condemns counseling for unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion, known as conversion therapy.

    The bill says “California law recognizes that performing conversion therapy on young persons is ineffective, unethical, and harmful. Conversion therapy has been rejected as ineffective, unethical, and harmful by leading medical, mental health, and child welfare organizations in the United States.”

    The resolution also seeks to reduce the stigma that society, therapists, and religious groups allegedly inflict upon those within the LGBTQ community.

    ACR-99 proclaims that stigmatizing has caused “disproportionately high rates of suicide, attempted suicide, depression, rejection, and isolation amongst LGBTQ and questioning individuals. The State of California has a compelling interest in protecting the physical and psychological well-being of minors, including LGBTQ youth.”

    This just shows you the arrogance of Democrats in California, that they presume to tell Christians what we should believe, even if it conflicts with church teachings. And it absolutely does, in this case.

    The last paragraph about suicides left something out. The resolution actually blames Christians, in part, for the high rates of suicide among LGBTers:

    The stigma associated with being LGBTQ often created by groups in society, including therapists and religious groups, has caused disproportionately high rates of suicide, attempted suicide, depression, rejection, and isolation amongst LGBTQ and questioning individuals;

    That’s right from the text of the resolution. And this, along with their ban of so-called ‘conversion therapy’ and their call for Christians to accept homosexuality borders on the fascistic.

    Further proof that California operates outside of our laws and Constitution...

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...

    And what is the penalty for violating this resolution? Maybe re-education camps, like China? The march to the left continues.

    To the left, there is no God. Freedom of religion is freedom from religion to these people.

    this will eventually get much worse, fewer people going to church or having any belief in religion. Christians will have to worship in their homes and hide their bibles because it will be declared hate speech... if there are any children in the home they could be taken by the state so as to not expose them to such teachings.

    Yep. DemocRATs honor no religion. The democRAT ideology IS the religion of those with the liberal mindset. Nothing matters to democRATs but the party...nothing but the party.

    The D after their names really does stand for "Despicable".

    I'd rather claim to be a child molester than claim to be a democRAT. They are higher up on the food chain.

    ACR-99 proclaims that stigmatizing has caused “disproportionately high rates of suicide, attempted suicide, depression, rejection, and isolation amongst LGBTQ and questioning individuals."

    There is evidence that shows gender confused individuals have higher rates of attempted suicide. The proclamation that the stigmatizing of these individuals is the root cause of higher rates of suicide is totally unfounded. Perhaps they want to kill themselves because they see that they're not actually the gender they say they are, but that's a different problem.

    "The State of California has a compelling interest in protecting the physical and psychological well-being of minors, including LGBTQ youth.”

    ^^^ "LGBTQ youth". This is what is most disturbing. Young, developing minds are very malleable. Kids constantly ask their parents what is right and what is wrong, because they don't know. They're kids, and don't know right from wrong. They need to be taught. If little Johnny starts putting on mom's high heels and is trying on dresses, the parents need to correct that behavior. Just because a child acts in a certain manner, doesn't mean you just let them go, and that they've made a critical life choice at the age of 5 or 6.

    There is discipline and there still exists the concept of raising a child. Children aren't just tossed to the wind, to do whatever they please, and then have the state step in and "protect" the well-being of that child by letting them develop, grow and mature under whatever ill-conceived notion pops into their young brains.

    This thinking is precisely what Melissa Harris-Perry said years ago, on MSNBC...

    “We’ve always had kind of a private notion of children. Your kid is yours, and your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of ‘These are our children.’ So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that ‘kids belong to their parents’ or ‘kids belong to their families,’ and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.”

    ^^^ Got that? CA, like this vacuous twit, are saying the state takes care of kids. Not parents. No matter what a child does, no matter what gender they think they are, CA is right there to "protect" that child.

    You Commiefornians must be proud that your tax money pays the salaries of these leftist idiots. Glad to see them really tackling the tough issues that face their state :)

    They should be doing something about CalPERS but that is difficult and politically toxic. Latest estimates are that CalPERS is underfunded by $138 billion. The system covers the pensions of 1.8 million Californians and is mostly funded by taxpayer money. Sorry for anyone reading this that is part of the system, but CA is more interested in the LGBTQ lifestyles of children than they are looking after your retirement.

    They may find some support among clergy regarding that issue.
