Because California voters are increasingly foolish and immoral, their Democrat-controlled State Legislature, to the detriment of children and adults, is attacking God’s design of human life and His creation of two distinct sexes — male and female. According to the Bible, God hates these bad bills — and you should too.
See why homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality
are unnatural, unhealthy, unbiblical, and tyrannical
AB 1732: Abolishes “men,” “women,” “boys” and “girls” single-user restrooms, naming them “all gender” instead; tramples religious freedom and private property rights; endangers women and girls
Status: Senate Transportation and Housing Committee hearing on Tuesday, June 21 at 1:30 pm in Room 4203
Action: Call the 11 committee members to urge them to “OPPOSE AB 1732”
SB 1146: Forces Christian colleges to promote homosexuality and transsexuality in admissions and hiring unless they specifically and publicly oppose it in their publications and postings on campus. SB 1146 tramples religious freedom and admits it. The official analysis of SB 1146 states, “This bill narrows the religious exemption afforded to these institutions, and requires disclosure of such exemption.”
Status: Assembly Higher Education Committee hearing on Tuesday, June 21 at 1:30 p.m. in Room 437
Action: Call the 13 committee members and urge, “OPPOSE SB 1146”
HR 54 (Assembly) and SR 79 (Senate): Officially celebrates “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month.” Last year, 16 Republicans and the Democrats voted for this anti-family resolution.
Status: On the Assembly floor for a vote anytime
Action: Call your own state assemblymember AND state senator, especially if they’re Republican. Urge assemblymembers to “OPPOSE HR 54” and state senator to “OPPOSE SR 79” (Note: “Republican” Ling Ling Chang of Diamond Bar already voted yes in committee)
AB 2531: Creates a new “human” market; permits young women to be paid for their ovarian eggs without being informed how this often leads to physical and psychological damage. AB 2531 would repeal the ban on payment to women for their oocytes (egg cells) if they were used for research. Two big reasons for the ban are: 1) the lack of data on the long-term effects on donors from ovarian stimulation involved in egg extraction, and 2) embryos produced from oocytes for research are human beings who are ultimately killed.
Status: Senate Appropriations Committee hearing on Monday, June 27 at 10 a.m. in Room 4203
Action: Call the 7 committee members and urge “OPPOSE AB 2531”
God’s Perfect Knowledge of Man
For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.
You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,”
Even the night shall be light about me;
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
When I awake, I am still with You.Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God!
Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.
For they speak against You wickedly;
Your enemies take Your name in vain.
Do I not hate them, O Lord, who hate You?
And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
I hate them with perfect hatred;
I count them my enemies.
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties;
And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.

SaveCalifornia.com provides this solely for educational purposes
and does not support or oppose candidates for public office.
When voting, do you have a minimum moral standard? For me, that minimum pro-family standard is the candidate must vote against murderous abortion, against the harmful “LGBT” agenda, for parental rights, and for religious freedom. I call these God’s non-negotiables.
But if your voting standard is “the lesser of two evils,” you can eventually vote for just about anything, right? Because “it’s all relative.”
My joke for professing Christians about the non-biblical “lesser of two evils” standard is to have them imagine a scenario where there are only two candidates: The Democrat candidate is the devil — and the Republican candidate is the Beast from the Book of Revelation. Professing Christians with a certain view of the end times, who have a lesser-of-two-evils voting standard, will justify voting for the Beast, saying, “He’ll give us three-and-a-half good years!” Listen to my SaveCalifornia.com Radio Minute on this
Now, all jokes aside, here’s something very important to think about this election:
If you support the sanctity of human life or oppose the unnatural, unhealthy, unbiblical, tyrannical homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda, ask yourself — will you support or oppose Republican candidates who oppose God’s non-negotiable values?
Joining nearly all the Democrats in the California State Legislature, 16 Republican legislators voted in 2015 to “celebrate” “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month”:
State Senator Anthony Cannella: Modesto-Merced-Fresno area stretching to Salinas and 101 strip on coast
State Senator Jeff Stone: Riverside County
Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian: All of San Luis Obispo County and north Santa Barbara County
Assemblywoman Catharine Baker: Walnut Creek-Danville-San Ramon-Dublin-Pleasanton-Livermore
Assemblywoman Ling Ling Chang: Chino Hills-Yorba Linda-Brea-La Habra-Walnut
Assemblyman Rocky Chávez: Northern coastal San Diego County
Assemblyman David Hadley: Los Angeles beach cities and south bay area
Assemblyman Matthew Harper: Coastal Orange County (Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods)
Assemblywoman Young Kim: Anaheim-Buena Park-Cypress-Fullerton-La Palma-Stanton
Assemblyman Tom Lackey: Lancaster-Palmdale area
Assemblyman Eric Linder: Corona-Eastvale-Jurupa Valley-Riverside
Assemblyman Brian Maienschein: Clairemont-Kearny Mesa-TierraSanta-Poway-Rancho Santa Fe
Assemblyman Devon Mathis: Tulare and Inyo counties
Assemblyman Chad Mayes: Yucaipa-Banning-Hemet-Morongo Valley-Yucca Valley-Twentynine Palms-Palm Springs-La Quinta
Assemblyman Marc Steinorth: Rancho Cucamonga-Redlands-Loma Linda-Highland-San Bernardino
Assemblyman Scott Wilk: Santa Clarita Valley and Simi Valley
Also last year, 3 Assembly Republicans — Catharine Baker of Contra Costa County, David Hadley of the Los Angeles beach cities area, and Brian Maienschein of north San Diego and San Diego County — voted YES to make California a Suicide State via “physician-assisted suicide.”
See the harm | See the vote
And who could forget last year’s vote to strip away parental rights and religious objections to controversial childhood vaccines that are a historically-high number of shots? Voting YES were 2 Assembly Republicans — Catherine Baker of Contra Costa County and Young Kim of Orange County — and 2 Senate Republicans Jeff Stone of Riverside County and Andy Vidak of Fresno, Kern, Kings and Tulare counties. See the harm | See the vote
And then this year, 4 Assembly Republicans voted YES to tear down “men,” “women,” “boys” and “girls” signs and symbols from single-user restrooms statewide. They were Catherine Baker of Contra Costa County, Ling Ling Chang of Los Angeles County, Young Kim of Orange County, and Brian Maienschein of San Diego County. See the harm | See the vote
Please consider your own moral values. Will you vote for any California candidate — Democrat, Republican, or other — even if they attack your values? Something to think about as you prepare to vote June 7.
[T]he time has come that Christians must vote for honest men and take consistent ground in politics or the Lord will curse them. . . . Christians have been exceedingly guilty in this matter. But the time has come when they must act differently. . . . Christians seem to act as if they thought God did not see what they do in politics. But I tell you He does see it – and He will bless or curse this nation according to the course they [Christians] take [in politics]. The great American evangelist Charles Finney (1792-1875)

I’ve been on the phone this week talking to directors of pro-life crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) about what’s needed to overturn the unconstitutional and tyrannical new law (AB 775), requiring posted signs urging pregnant mothers to turn around, exit, and go get a tax-subsidized abortion.
It’s illogical for anyone to compare “labeling” CPCs to how the government requires boxes at the grocery store to be labeled. Those laws require disclosure of what’s inside the box. But AB 775 intolerantly requires disclosure of what’s not inside the CPC, namely, that they won’t kill babies.
At its core, forcing pro-abortion signs at pro-life centers is forcing them to say what they don’t wish. It’s compelled speech, a direct violation of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which reads in part, “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech.”
To win in federal court, probably going all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, pro-life centers must not be outnumbered by pro-abortion parties and outgunned by pro-abortion attorneys.
I say this because I have seen a problem several times in court: where a certain pro-family legal group wants to be the ONLY lawsuit, leaving our side with only 1 attorney speaking in court, while the anti-family side has 3 or 4 attorneys who get to speak. Therefore, it’s weak and foolish for CPCs to be represented by only 1 legal organization or to limit the number of lawsuits.
Instead, we need several lawsuits from several parties represented by several pro-life legal organizations. This way, the outcry against this bad law is bigger and louder, and more pro-life attorneys get to speak in court. Yes, we need to lobby judges to do the right thing!
SaveCalifornia.com is working to gather additional plaintiffs to join a federal lawsuit (with no work or risk required). If you or someone you know directs a pro-life crisis pregnancy center, please call us at 916-265-5650 to identify yourself and to express your interest.
And please consider supporting SaveCalifornia.com with your gift today. I need your help to stand publicly for Life and many other moral values.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
