When bad bills pass at California’s State Capitol, the media does a big disservice when they tell you only that the “Assembly” or “Senate” or “state legislators” passed something. Such deceptive descriptions hide the fact that the majority party is passing these bills because of the majority party’s philosophy and numerical power in its legislative body.

So let’s say it like it is: Democrat legislators are in control in Sacramento. They’ve had majority control, with just a couple of years of exception, since the late 1950s. And since January of this year, the Democrats have had a supermajority — two-thirds of both houses, the Assembly and state Senate. So the bills that pass — love ’em or hate ’em — come from the hand of the Democrats. Average voters deserve to know what their voting habit is doing for them or to them.

For example, this week, SB 323, to yank state tax-exempt status from private youth organizations if they don’t have homosexual-bisexual-transsexual leaders or members, passed only with and only because 27 Democrats in the state Senate put it through, a two-thirds majority and the bare minimum needed to alter the tax codes. Honest media would have reported “Democrats pass/approve/push.” But that’s not what you see in the news. So it’s up to you to inform people you know, via email and social networking and on news sites.

What do you get with a Democrat supermajority in Sacramento? A virtual guarantee that bills harming children and families will pass the California Legislature. That’s the consequence.

Demonstrating a serious misunderstanding of human design, natural sex, religious freedom, and personal responsibility, these Democrat-authored bills are advancing in a torrid quest to replace wisdom with foolishness and moral virtues with licentiousness:

AB 154 permits nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, and physician assistants to perform suction abortions, which tortuously dismember pre-born babies in the womb (bill status)

AB 926 permits young women to be paid to have their human eggs extracted (and destroyed) for the purpose of “medical research,” which also sets the stage for future human cloning. These egg “donations” harm women’s health, can result in sterility, and denies the participants informed consent. (bill status) (“eggsploitation” explained)

AB 999 hands out condoms to homosexuals in state prisons, spreading more disease (bill status)

SB 323 punishes the Boy Scouts and other youth organizations by removing their tax-deductible, non-profit status unless they allow homosexual-bisexual-transsexual youth leaders (bill status)

AB 1266 forces K-12 public schools to permit biological boys in girls’ restrooms, showers, clubs, and on girls’ sports teams; and biological girls in boys’ restrooms, showers, clubs, and on boys’ sports teams (bill status) (existing sexual indoctrination laws)

AB 460 requires insurance policies to cover homosexual “infertility,” despite Nature’s unchangeable laws requiring a man and a woman to conceive (bill status)

AB 48 prevents families from having the same rounds of ammunition with their home-defense gun as criminals have with their guns (bill status)

This is what California’s Democrat-controlled Legislature is doing. Now you can inform others.

When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, “just men who will rule in the fear of God.” The preservation of government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty; if the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded. If a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.

Democrats’ bills harm children and families

What do you get with the Democrats in firm control of both houses of the California Legislature? Take a look at some of their new bills harming children and families:

Pushing sexual perversity 

AB 1266: Forces California K-12 government schools to allow biological boys in girls’ restrooms, showers, and on girls’ sports teams; and permits biological girls in boys’ restrooms, showers, and on boys’ sports teams. All under the guise of “gender identity” (transsexuality, transvestitism, cross-dressing, etc.). Authored by homosexual activist Tom Ammiano, a Democrat assemblymember from San Francisco. 

SB 323: Demands that the Boy Scouts accept homosexual-bisexual-transsexual leaders and members or lose their state tax-exempt status. Designed to decrease donations to the Boy Scouts over the national Scouts policy requiring leaders and members to be “morally straight.”  Authored by another homosexual activist, Democrat Senator Ricardo Lara of Long Beach. 

SB 145: This bill is poorly-written at best and deceptive at worst. While claiming to toughen child pornography prosecutions, SB 145 is written to potentially decrease penalties to a mere fine and parole for possessing or selling up to 600 sexual images of children through age 17. Authored by Democrat Senator Fran Pavley of Agoura Hills and co-authored by liberal Republican Jeff Gorrell of Camarillo.

Killing babies, damaging women

AB 154: Kills preborn babies by permitting nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, and physician assistants to torturously vacuum apart babies in the womb (this is what a suction abortion does). A similar bill died in committee last year but is more likely to pass this year. Authored by former abortion clinic manager and open homosexual Assemblymember Toni Atkins, a San Diego Democrat.

AB 926: Threatens young women’s health by paying them to be injected with hormones and drugs for the purpose of giving up their reproductive eggs. This dangerous procedure can leave young women sterile and physically harmed, without informed consent. Authored by Susan Bonilla, a Democrat assemblymember from Solano and Contra Costa counties. See the March 10 Sacramento Bee article on AB 926

Action: Tell others what’s happening. Share via Facebook, Twitter, and more; comment on news websites; announce to your church.

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.

The future of the Boy Scouts

Thursday, February 7, 2013, 5:49 pm | Randy Thomasson

ScoutsaluteThe latest attack of homosexual activists against the Boy Scouts is very important, perhaps more important than the Boy Scouts and scouting families know.

First, let’s establish some facts about what’s being debated. There is no “gay gene” and no biological basis to homosexuality. Homosexual behavior is unnatural, unhealthy, unbiblical, and its political agenda is tyrannical against those who don’t support it. So keeping out homosexual-bisexual-transsexual role models and influences is definitely in the best interest of training boys to be “morally straight.”

Understand the first two facts by visiting SaveCalifornia.com’s Not Born This Way page. Understand why all sexual activity outside of man-woman marriage is immoral by seeing Matthew 19:4-6, Mark 7:21-23, Romans 1:26-27, and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, to name a few scriptures.

The good news is the newest push by homosexual activists to invade scouting tents has been temporarily stalled. But the bad news is the homosexualization of the Boy Scouts may eventually occur, unless they get back to the Bible.

I fully acknowledge the likelihood that, in May, the 1,400-member national council of the Boy Scouts of America will affirm the current policy against homosexual staff, scoutmasters, and members.

But  as long as the Boy Scouts remain a non-religious/non-Biblical organization and don’t insist on board members who love morality more than money, I’m concerned that their days as a “morally straight” youth organization are numbered.

Consider all the Christian-format hospitals and universities that were founded more than a century ago, but are now bastions of unbiblical values. And don’t forget the Christian church denominations that have been systematically taken over by those who despise the revealed word of God in Scripture. For if “Christian” institutions can fall when future generations of leaders ignore Biblical standards, how much easier can officially “non-religious” organizations with only “moral” principles eventually implode from within?

To protect boys from immoral values emanating from within Scouting, I recommend the Boy Scouts consider doing the following:

1.    Make the Bible the standard of the Boy Scouts, not merely holding beliefs based on society’s frequently-changing perspectives on “God” and “morality.” Draft new bylaws stating its commitment to Biblical values and name core principles.

2.    Prohibit anyone from being in the Scouts unless they agree, in writing, with these core principles.

3.    Dramatically downsize the paychecks of Scout executives and size of Scout offices to reduce the temptation to pursue money over morality.

4.    In order to maintain religious freedom, be willing to abandon its Congressional charter and government support, if necessary.

5.    Restore this policy statement to the Boy Scouts’ official websites, which was posted from 2004 to 2010, when it was taken down: “Boy Scouts of America believes that homosexual conduct is inconsistent with the obligations in the Scout Oath and Scout Law to be morally straight and clean in thought, word, and deed. The conduct of youth members must be in compliance with the Scout Oath and Law, and membership in Boy Scouts of America is contingent upon the willingness to accept Scouting’s values and beliefs. Most boys join Scouting when they are 10 or 11 years old. As they continue in the program, all Scouts are expected to take leadership positions. In the unlikely event that an older boy were to hold himself out as homosexual, he would not be able to continue in a youth leadership position.”

The new policy, posted on June 7, 2012, is: “While the BSA does not proactively inquire about the sexual orientation of employees, volunteers, or members, we do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avowed homosexuals or who engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the BSA.”

And now, here in 2013, some national board members in the Boy Scouts reportedly agree with homosexual activists — and agree with both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney — to get rid of this standard altogether. Do you see the slide?

As the Boy Scouts struggle comes to a head, it’s time for a spiritual reality check about what’s best for morally-sensitive families, which is why, over the years, many “Bible-based” and “Christian discipleship” alternatives to Boy Scouts — and Girl Scouts — have sprung up.

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good.
