New bill pushes Scouts, little leagues, religious groups

To accept LGBT, “Gender Identity”

lmll10The following comes from a February 21 release from the Pacific Justice Institute.

A new bill introduced this week in the California Senate would take some of the most aggressive action to date to force youth organizations to embrace homosexuality and “gender identity.”

SB 323, sponsored by Equality California and introduced by Sen. Ricardo Lara (D – Long Beach) threatens to revoke tax exempt status for a wide range of “youth groups” unless they agree to abandon any criteria related to gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and other categories.

The bill was designed to pressure the Boy Scouts to accept homosexuality, but its sweep goes much further.  The bill specifically targets groups ranging from the Scouts to Special Olympics, Little League, Pop Warner, 4-H, Future Farmers of America, as well as youth sports in general.  It also references private schools and “youth groups.”

Attorneys with Pacific Justice Institute are assessing all the potential implications of SB 323 and will be vigorously opposing it.  “From the plain text of this bill, it is clear to us that SB 323 is one of the most outrageous bills we have seen in California—and that’s saying a lot,” said Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute.  “We have been warning for years that the gay lobby would eventually use tax exemptions to force non-profits to capitulate to their demands, but it’s still shocking to see it actually in print and on its way to becoming law.”

Because SB 323 would have the effect of a massive tax increase on non-profits that stand by their principles, it requires 2/3 approval in both Senate and Assembly.  This higher threshold makes it even more important that Californians call and visit their legislators to protest.  PJI will provide updates throughout the legislative process.

    This can not be…the America that I read in the history books, the land of the free? What happened….the gays want our kids and our freedom….they can’t have kids naturally so they want to meddle in our kids activities…what a great evil they are…..this really shows who evil they are and I can see more and more people will start to hate and notice their obsession to impose their ways on families….shame on them!

    • You are all out of your minds.

      • Abeca Christian says:

        no peter is it you…we have God and His natural law to back us up!

        • Abeca Christian says:

          peter you take this very personal…it’s not about peter but its about telling agenda’s to stop imposing their laws on our kids and their activities. Stop messing with our kids! It’s just wrong…no matter how liberal one is, no one wants to be penalized to conform against their will to comply against people’s personal freedoms.

          • Abeca, they do indeed want our children. That is why the next stage in the war on christians is to normalize paedophilia. These people know that in order to destroy christian culture, you must corrupt the young. So far, christian parents have been able to protect their young fairly well against these assaults on their innocence, but now, the evil ones are in power and using it to force themselves into every aspect of our lives. This is called persecution. It is now accepted by them as a way of life.

          • They also want our children through adoption.

  2. Abeca Christian says:

    This is a spiritual war…..

    • Loss of freedoms and the promotion of perversity. Lets see…I remember something about calling an evil, good and a good, evil. Demonic.

  3. Abeca Christian says:

    In my nightmares….I see a future where moral families will be in the hiding…keeping their children away from any public places, as the government knocks on everyone’s doors to force higher taxes on folks and to do their census. Many will go back to having their children in caves, underground in secret…to hide their children away from the pro-gay activists. There will be less and less priests……just like the Romans did…the gay activists will have parties and orgies….and when they find children, they will force them to work serving them drinks and for entertainment…the young boys filled with fear, they will pray that the activists will get drunk enough to not force them to have their way with them. We are not far from those days….those living nightmares that we once wondered how did the early Christians survive those evil times…from what I read the Romans were really cruel and evil….

  4. Abeca Christian says:

    Doctors are to perform abortions no matter whether you are against it……so will there be doctors reporting to the NAMBLA when a fresh new boy is born….they will follow that child till they can snatch him…….

    yes this sounds like a horrific book/story but it’s not too far from the truth and for what parents are feeling now with these new evil laws! See what laws like this produce…and the gay activist or gay mafia get upset….well face the consequences of what you provoke when you mess with our children’s activities and our freedoms!

  5. Thanks to the diabolical influence of Emperor Obama, the homosexual agenda has been given free reign to force their debauchery down our throats. The indoctrination of children is the key aspect of the rainbow mafia’s plan to reach their ultimate goal: the complete and total embrace of society of their unnatural and sordid lifestyle. May God have mercy upon us. His day of wrath is approaching. +JMJ+

    • Abeca Christian says:

      Clinton you are correct, that is why the homosexuals voted for him, don’t believe some of them when they say they are pro-life because it is a lie, they are pro-gay before they are for pro-life…they would prefer you keep killing unborn children just so they can advance their homosexual agendas.

      the question still applies to them: who do YOU love more Jesus or your homosexuality? We all know the answer. They were better off when they were NOT coming out of the closet, at least they learned to be virtuous and contained themselves more and some actually had some common decency but now it is totally the opposite!

  6. Kenneth M. Fisher says:

    Knight of Columbus Sen Lou Correa will probably be in favor of this un-Constitutional Bill as he has been for pro-death of the unborn Bills.

    The last I heard, he was still a member of St. Columban in Garden Grove, Council. I know the ex-Knight who recruited him and regrets it!

    God bless, yours in Their Hearts,
    Kenneth M. Fisher

  7. the perversion and sodomization is now taking direct aim at our children all in the name of forced tolerance…..do you believe me now PA and YFC that persecution is starting?

    • Abeca Christian says:

      Canisius it’s what they want, whether they believe you or not, they know it. It’s activism…..it being a disorder doesn’t help them want common decency even if its common sense. There was a time when some homosexuals didn’t want to mess with children not unless they wanted them for their use, but now it’s all about growing their rights and agendas. They want to normalize their behavior to gain acceptance….they don’t care what moral people think, or what God has commanded in the natural order. NO.

      Like the abortion industry, they even know that partial birth is blatantly evil and murder but many still do not stop it because if they did, they feel that they went a step back in growing their abortion rights. I think you already know all this but just in case, it’s worth repeating.

  8. What’s to worry? The federal govt nationalizing Little League and Boy Scouts, as it has nationalized the Catholic Church. Little League boys will no longer be oppressed with meaningless rules of play, but will be able to make up the rules as they go. And if there is a dispute in a game, the govt will determine who gets the win … well, if there is a win, that is; after all, one team winning is unfair to the other team. So, little league baseball will be improved by not allowing either team to win or lose … all will be good, everyone will smile, and instead of baseballs the stadiums will be filled with pink balloons.

  9. We stopped them with Prop 8 we can still stop them with this one.

  10. Did you notice how the bill uses MONEY to force these organizations to bend. Money is powerful in this country…May God have mercy upon ALL our souls!

  11. It will become where we are afraid to take our children out of the house. It is shocking that a bill like this could even be introduced. It is so obvious that homosexuals just want access to molesting young boys. I have always believed that homosexuality and pedophilia go hand in hand.

    My family just made the decision to move out of California, and I can’t wait.

    • To where? Places like Washington State or Massachusetts that are worse? There are other states, also, that have perverse laws on the drawing board. Choose wisely as the list is getting short.

  12. Steve Seitz says:

    Marriage equality? What does this mean? Do they actually mean that they want to honor polygamists and child molesters to marry anyone they can. This is not real marriage but artificial marriage.

    Marriage is special and is given to us from nature. When people try to cheat nature and society, their actions always come back to haunt them and society.

    Saint Mary, Pray for us!

  13. Laurette Elsberry says:

    Ricardo Lara – a professed “gay” Catholic Hispanic Democrat working towards the goals of the Culture of Death. It’s certainly time for Archbishop Gomez to exercise his authority to strongly counsel Senator Lara that his soul is danger of damnation.

  14. Bob Fasanello says:

    This is designed to provide new sources for lawsuits, since the Church scandals have lessened. Let’s force Scouts, et al., to accept homosexual leaders; then, when boys are abused by the homosexuals, open a floodgate of lawsuits against them. Is there anything in the bill to hold the organizations harmless for actions of those whom they would be forced to accept?

  15. St. Christopher says:

    Well, chickens coming home to roost, in a sense. Still, this bill is beyond outrage, and shows the desperation and depravity of the homosexual sex lobby and believers. Their entire belief system revolves around their sexual perversions, including a very substantial love of pubescent and adolescent boys. Look at the homosexual sex invastion of the Catholic Church (and look at what their lobby did to Benedict, who, by all accounts, was floored with their prominence, protections, and influence in the curia and “Order of Bishops”) — why demand that other organizations accept them? What kind of policy does this represent? Too bad the Boy Scouts of America were not like Planned Parenthood and killed the pre-born, then their 501c3 would be safe. Reach out to these Members, although they will not care. No one stands up them in the State, and the population of CA continues to place them in positions of power. This is now on the people.

  16. No subtlety anymore– the gay brownshirts become more and more open about doing the will of their spiritual father Satan.

    I don’t count on Archbishop “Pepe” to do anything in this case. Sadly, IMHO his public rebuke of the Cardinal, now weakened to a near meaningless sanction, will be the highlight of his episcopacy.

  17. This may be a foolish question, but for religious organizations would not this constitute a religious test for public benefits? Would not the (witless) state of California have to either allow all religious bodies to do as they wished or deny the benefit of tax exemption to all religious bodies at once?

  18. Mr. Byrne: Not a foolish question at all! Unfortunately, the First Amendment counts for little in the eyes of the perverted LGBTQIET# juggernaut and their syncophants in the government. Just like the morons who can’t even figure out that the Second Amendment might touch on issues such as gun control, likewise the sexual deviants can’t reason in their sin-twisted minds that sincerely-held religious beliefs have any protection from the First Amendment.

      Father Michael God bless you. I appreciate your comments because it is refreshing reading your words of common sense and common decency with conviction from a priest. I pray for more priests to grow in that precious convictions to lead more souls to truth. God bless you!

    • The rhetoric, FrMichael, wow … and I had thought I was almost alone in the “Cotton Mather”, “Jonathon Edwards”, and “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” department!!!

  19. And where are the CATHOLIC voters who put these people into CA offices?
    It’s all related to the following – - –

    The CA Bishops need to to a better job teaching all the literate to read the “Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition” so they will all know their Faith in entirety.

    The CA Bishops also need to enforce Canon 915 to stop Sacrilege against the ‘Real Presence”.
    And publically excommunicate ab homine via Canon 1399 to teach those obstinate in grave sin; and stop Scandal, Heresy, Schism and Confusion within their own Diocese.

    Things get worse and not better when Bishops do not do their own jobs.

    • The teaching function of the Church is so important, that those bishops who fail it are really doomed … read St Paul on the “gifts of the Holy Spirit”.

  20. The “gay rights” movement is used as a vehicle to establish a new form of Fascism in this country. The fascists are using the gays for their purpose and in the end no one wins except the fascists. Historically, the front cause usually involves a “victimized” minority or a boogyman (Jews in Nazi Germany).
    Society will continue losing ground to the fascists until they are identified and actively repelled.

  21. The “Catholic” voters who put these people in office i.e. Peolosi, Biden, Brown, Sebelius, Sanchez, are all Novus Ordonarians, they and of course the Bishops who will not excummnicate these heretical politicians are to blame. So simple yet we still ask the same questions when these stories come up.

  22. Get a grip! We are at war. It may be a ‘smokeless’ (non-shooting) war but a war just the same and we have become unwary and involuntarily involved in it whether we like it or not. The enemy is spending all its time and energy to see it through. The Christians will be fed to the lions as before if the trend continues. The same dedication must be made to repel it or all will be lost. We could only fight or submit at this point. Make your choice! As the enemy has rejected God we know that he is not on their side so take it from there!

  23. I know a man in his late forties, who admitted to me that in his youth he was “a little homosexual”. That was over twentyfive years ago. He is an ardent Evangelical, and has put that chapter behind him. He is embarrassed and ashamed and regrets that way of life. He has to fight against the impulses however … I can see these, and I can also see that he does not like such impulses. He is winning the battle against slavery to Satan. These examples demonstrate that God will protect those who struggle against tempation. peter has nowhere to go but further into deception, both of himself and of others … unless he turns away from his homosexual lusts. He might be able to do this on the natural level; however, he can certainly do it on the supernatural level with Christ carrying him from the flood of the “old dragon” who stalks Woman and Child.

  24. I feel like you all are missing the point. You’re preaching on and on about the “gay agenda.” That’s not even a thing.
    I think this bill is a positive step to help finally put an end to all the severe depression and suicidal thoughts found amongst LGBT teens.

  25. Most-likely the pro-LGBT super-majority in the state senate and assembly will get their way, arrogantly ignore any heterosexual pleas to end this gross nightmare set out to confuse and destroy our childrens innocence and christian morals. Oh the devil is working overtime in the Californika legistlature controlling his majority of zombies. We must pray the rosary to God and for Blessed Mother’s intercession to protect our children and ourselves from this onslaught of evil forced upon us. These unwanted socialist offensive actions against God, that are out to destroy christian morals and values, are just begging for His righteous vengence to be felt. May God watch over and protect our children and have mercy on us for voting these zombies into elected public office.
