    It already is in Hollywood if rumors are to be believed.

    No kidding, that’s a first amendment case if there ever was one.

    Guarantee Islam is exempt.

    Low's bill in 2018, AB 2943, was ordered to the inactive file at the request of Assembly Member Low, and died on the inactive file. He's passionate about this subject, and it's obviously a very personal one for him.

    The public background info on this local-born Assemblyman includes at least one speculative article mentioning him being one of several young potential 2024 presidential candidates for the Dem's.

    Maybe it’s time to start up the Crusades again and free the people of California?

    Fascism is the imposition of a worldview through threats and intimidation, and accompanied forcible suppression of opposition.

    Hmm. Sounds like the Democrat party.

    Are they making the same demands of the Muslim clerics in Cali?

    It will have to through the Liberal 9th Circuit first, but SCOTUS will make this one crash and burn.

    Yes -- the "cause and effect" thing is about as screwed up, in the minds of leftists, as is "Climate Change."

    Do they even bother to consider that people who suffer these forms of dysporia to begin with, are also more prone to be suicidal? :headscratch:

    I hope the clergy don’t give in...

    "If anyone causes one of these little ones--those who believe in me--to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.“

    Excellent point. If not, then this bill won't survive any scrutiny.

    Are the lgbtq and Christians welcome in the Mosques? Is CA addressing that?

    Have you read the Assembly Concurrent Resolution 99 (ACR-99)?

    https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201920200ACR99

    "Resolved, That the Legislature calls 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 be it further

    Resolved, That in addressing the stigma often associated with persons who identify as LGBTQ, we call on the people of California–especially its counselors, pastors, religious workers, educators, and legislators–and the institutions of California with great moral influence–especially its churches, universities, colleges, and other schools, counseling centers, activist groups, and religious centers–to model equitable treatment of all people of the state; and be it further"



    Rather sounds like any and all churches and religious centers are included.

    Besides, just because the posted article presents one claimed Christian reaction to how it perceives the resolution, that doesn't mean other organized religions and religious centers might not have their own perception and reaction to it.

    It's a Resolution.

    The Devil's menions in Commiefornia have put this out as a distraction from something far worse they will try to sneak under the radar for Satan. Knowing that this cannot withstand a fair court hearing.

    As an avowed agnostic, I would support Christians against Democrats any day of the week.

    How about a resolution for public school teachers to treat white male students from a place of "love, compassion, and understanding."

    The “clergy” will be happy to sign on to the sodomites but the Preachers will tell them where to go.

    Speaking of Islam: Don't think mainline Islam is any official friend of LGBT lifestyle. I may be wrong.
