In our previous article, ‘California — A Glimpse into America’s Future?‘, which was submitted April 9th, we discussed the lawless nature of that state and how it is becoming more dangerous every year. It has only been days since that article and now an even more scary progressive more is afoot.
Assembly Bill ‘Assembly Bill 2943‘ is headed to the House floor for a vote. A snippet of that bill states “[it] would make it an ‘unlawful business practice’ to engage in ‘a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer’ that advertise, offer to engage in, or do engage in ‘sexual orientation change efforts with an individual”. In simple terms it would mean the following. The National Review made several of these interpretations of that law.
What the bill basically says is that anything that can be seen as trying to impact a person’s sexual orientation would be illegal to sell or offer.
“The bill then defines ‘sexual orientation change efforts’ as ‘any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation. This includes efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex,” continued National Review.
“Efforts to change behaviors” is where the real problem is. After all, almost all counseling and even common psychiatric care are intended to “change behaviors” in various ways.
If you think about it, that’s the entire reason people seek help in the first place: They want to stop drinking or becoming angry or, yes, having troubling thoughts about their sexuality.
It’s also worth pointing out that the bill as written would apply to people who are trying to change their own behavior. This would mean that if a person was struggling with same-sex behavior or sexual identity and they themselves wanted to change, it would be illegal for them to buy any book meant to help them with this.
The problem here isn’t limited to Christian books. Bizarrely, the bill appears to put almost any counseling or psychiatric service in the cross-hairs [of the government].
For example, let’s say a man has a liking of cross-dressing or transvestism. For whatever reason, the person has become addicted to wearing women’s clothes and has found that showing up to work in high heels and a dress has a negative impact on his life.
If anyone attempts to change his thinking or he himself tries to alter his behavior by reading a self-help book or seeing a psychiatrist, he and/or the ‘shrink’ are in trouble with the law!
Once again, this should be yet another ‘dot’ to connect with the many others that are in your face and should scare the hell out of people.
You can’t make this sort of story up. But it’s getting to be that if it’s a crazy story, it’s probably from California. The problem is, the source of these stories may spread to other states..?
