A California bill is so broad that it bans books, printed materials, and advertisements that provide information that a person facing unwanted same-sex attractions or gender confusion can change, according to Liberty Counsel. AB 2943 declares “advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual” is fraudulent business practice.

California State Assemblymember, Al Muratsuchi, said, “The First Amendment does not prohibit banning fraudulent conduct. The faith community, like anyone else, needs to evolve with the times.”

During his speech on the California bill at Google headquarters, LGBT activist Samuel Brinton reportedly said he wanted to “figure out a way to stop” pastors and churches from offering counsel to help people change unwanted same-sex attractions. He went on to say, “I may not be able to FIND every little camp…every pastor, but I can make it something that is culturally unacceptable.” He added, “Yes, it’s directly affecting mental health professionals, but by proxy, it’s affecting everyone else.”

Liberty Counsel asserted that the Bible specifically refers to homosexuality 1 Corinthians 6:9. Then verse 11 states, “And such were some of you,” thus clearly stating that through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, people with same-sex attractions or who engaged in same-sex behavior can change.

Advertising this passage or quoting it in a brochure would be considered fraudulent business practices under this bill, according to Liberty Counsel. This bill is an infringement on First Amendment rights and is a classic viewpoint discrimination. It declares certain kinds of speech as consumer fraud.

A pastor, church or para-church ministry could be banned from holding a conference or selling books or videos about overcoming unwanted same-sex attractions or gender confusion.

The California Assembly approved the bill and, as of April 25, had two state Senate committees to go through before a floor vote. The Democrat-controlled California State Senate could pass AB 2943 in late May.

Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, said, “California AB 2943 is a dangerous bill that would punish people for their biblical beliefs about marriage, gender and human sexuality” said. “This law is stunning in its breadth. The mask of those supporting this oppressive bill has been removed. Their goal is to crush Christianity and any viewpoint that does not align with the state.

“We stand ready to file suit to stop this assault on freedom if this bill is signed into law.”

Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.

A new belief system has emerged and become very popular with this technology obsessed, radically undisciplined and self absorbed generation.  They call it Postmodernism.  If you are not familiar with it, you need to be.  Here is a video that provides a very brief and shallow synopsis of it.

Postmodernism. The Postmodern Worldview is difficult to define, because to define it would violate the postmodernist’s premise that no definite terms, boundaries, or absolute truths exist. In this article, the term postmodernism will remain vague, since those who claim to be postmodernists have varying beliefs and opinions on issues.

The following article contains a resolution that was submitted to the UN for consideration.  It did not get anywhere, then.  That was in 2014.  A lot has changed worldwide since then.  It may not be too far fetched to think that something like this could be ratified in the not to distant future. 

On January 27, 2004, Antony Last, founder of formulism.org. proposed a “Resolution to Ban Religion” to the United Nations and then issued a press release over the internet via EmediaWire.  Then began a fire storm of confusion when, like any story that is told multiple times, someone misread the release and thought it came directly from the United Nations and put out the word that the UN was going to ban religion.  The fact is as stated above it was only submitted to the UN for their review. We could only hope that the United Nations would consider such a proposal. 

Proposed UN Resolution Would Effectively Ban Religion

A draft resolution which aims to secure global peace and stability at the expense of organized religion is today being submitted to the United Nations in New York.

NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) January 27, 2004 — A draft resolution which aims to secure global peace and stability at the expense of organized religion is today being submitted to the United Nations in New York.

The resolution is being proposed by Antony Last, founder of formulism.org, a site which claims that freedom FROM religion would be of far greater benefit to mankind than freedom OF religion.

Freedom from Religion | Proposed UN Resolution / Charter Amendment | Version 1.1


* to save succeeding generations from the scourge of organized religion, a folly which has brought untold sorrow to mankind through the division, hatred and conflict it engenders, and
