Radical attack on Christian colleges in election year COULD be stopped

OpposeSB1146

TAKE ACTION: Express your concern and anger

You want religious freedom protected and respected, right? And you want Christian colleges to be able to stay Christian, right?

This is why you and I and many other people of faith are opposing SB 1146, which would permit homosexual-bisexual-transsexual activists to SUE Christian colleges to FORCE upon them a raft of sexual perversity laws that will take the “Christian” out of Christian colleges.

The problem is, few people know how to fight to win. Now I admit, it’s very hard to win for anything good and true in the current, Democrat-controlled California State Legislature.

Yet I can tell you this — everything I know in my 20+ years of serving California families informs me that SB 1146 COULD be defeated on the Assembly floor. But to achieve victory, we must fight with the right targets, right tactics, and right message.

analysisWhy target the Assembly floor:

1. More freedom of conscience on floor for Democrats: Unlike committees where individual Democrats are expected to vote yes on the Democrats’ priority bills, to pass them through committee and send them to the floor, Democrats on the Assembly floor are “allowed” much more freedom to vote their conscience. This includes those who voted yes in committee!

2. Additional freedom for Democrats in an election year: Democrat bosses lose more control the closer Election Day looms because Democrats in swing districts don’t want to lose on something as popular as religious freedom or even violating their own liberal principle of “separation of Church and State.”

Therefore, the Assembly floor vote this August can be the perfect storm IF morally-sensitive Californians unleash a flood of outrage against the tyrannical SB 1146.

In the 80-member California State Assembly, there are currently 52 Democrats and 28 Republicans. Because passing SB 1146 requires a majority vote (41 “yes” votes), this immoral and completely un-American bill will be defeated IF:

  • At least 12 Democrat assemblymembers DO NOT support the bill
  • And NONE of the 28 Republican assemblymembers support the bill

Democrats: You can have faith, but can’t practice it

Be disturbed. Be very disturbed.
And please, express your concern and anger now.

Realize that the same devilish spirit that burned Christians alive and threw them to ravenous beasts in the 1st through 3rd centuries is now in 2016 demanding that California Christians abandon their obedience to Jesus Christ or be severely punished.

That’s what the Democrat politicians’ SB 1146 would do to Christian institutions in California. This intolerant, tyrannical bill would force Christian-format colleges, universities, and Bible schools to abandon their obedience to God on sexual matters — by imposing the unnatural, unhealthy, unbiblical homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda instead.

Stop and think about it. Evil forces are coming for your friends today. If you don’t stand up for them, these forces will come for you tomorrow!

At the last hearing on SB 1146 on June 30, a young homosexual activist demanded legal permission to sue his former Christian college for big bucks, saying, “As a religious, Christ-loving openly gay man, I believe I should have the legal right to a discriminatory-free education…[with] legal recourse…”

Also at the hearing, the head of the largest “LGBTQ” promotion group in California (Equality California) essentially said Christian colleges must submit to his tyrannical homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda: “SB 1146 makes it clear that our existing state discrimination laws should apply in these higher education settings.”

Defending Christian values and religious freedom was Dr. John Jackson, the president of William Jessup University. At the hearing, Dr. Jackson said, “Part of the beauty of the American experience is the foundational recognition of unalienable rights, which do not derive from government, but derive from our Creator. Jessup and other faith-based schools have clear religious convictions regarding gender, sexuality, and marriage. SB 1146 marginalizes students and schools whose beliefs do not align with the views of those holding the levers of government power…creating a society that does not value diversity of opinion and even punishing dissent from what politicians have determined are the correct beliefs.”

See the devilish spirit of the Democrats at the hearing, where author and his witnesses insisted religious practices must be eliminated in favor of the unbiblical “LGBTQ” agenda. And in corrupt fashion, the Democrats passed SB 1146 on “intent,” not based on the proposed language in front of them! SB 1146 will be heard in August in the Assembly Appropriations Committee, then the Assembly floor, and if it passes, the Senate floor.

EXPRESS YOUR CONCERN AND ANGER RIGHT NOW. If you support religious freedom and don’t want yours or anyone else’s religious freedom punished, please take quick action right now. SaveCalifornia.com makes it simple for you to leave a message with your own state assemblymember, state senator, and the governor.

SB 1146 violates the line between secular and sacred

SB1146v2_441x240

Please pick up the phone right now to defend Christian colleges from homosexual and transsexual activists. For if you don’t act now and “hold the line” against SB 1146, the forces of darkness will come for you next.

The Democrats at the State Capitol don’t like Christian colleges. The Bible offends them. Jesus Christ’s words against adultery, fornication, and lewdness — and the Savior’s definition of marriage as only for one man and one woman – all this offends these politicians.

So the Democrats want to punish Christian colleges by permitting homosexual and transsexual students to go to court and sue these colleges into becoming non-Christian, pro-perversity campuses instead. It’s like turning light into dark, right into wrong, and life into death.

MAKE JUST 3 CALLS

Please take immediate action to save religious freedom. Tell Sacramento, “Maintain separation of Church and State. SB 1146 violates the line between sacred and secular. Please vote no!”
