BILL TARGETING CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATIONS & BOY SCOUTS PASSES STATE SENATE
May 29, 2013
Dear TVC Supporters:
Liberal Democrats in the State Senate have done it again…they have caved into the demands of radical homosexual activists and have passed the anti-Christian, anti-church, anti-Boy Scout bill, SB 323 today!!
The vote was 27 to 9 with 3 not voting. All 27 votes in favor came from Democrats. Clearly they are in bed with the homosexual community.
This means SB 323 will be in the hands of Assembly Members. We must not waste any time in contacting them to reject this attack on religious and moral beliefs and attacks on churches and Christian schools.
Please remember the following dangers about SB 323: SENATE BILL 323:Homosexual activists are once again targeting the minds of our young & impressionable youth. By using the threat of stripping all non-profit groups and churches of their tax-exempt status, liberal homosexual legislators are attacking their religious beliefs and want to force them to accept homosexuality and transgender policies. SB 323 is an attempt by homosexual Senator Ricardo Lara and homosexual organizations to strip every non-profit group in the state of their tax-exempt status if they object to “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” in their operations, hiring, beliefs, etc.This bill is designed to force the Boy Scouts in California to pay taxes because they currently oppose homosexuality for religious reasons and they do not allow homosexuals to serve as scout masters that supervise young boys. But this bill does not merely attack the Boy Scouts; SB 323 goes after ALL non-profits that deal with youth in any manner as well. SB 323 would target churches and Christian schools as a result. SB 323 specifically mentions “youth groups” by non-profits; they will be forced to accept pro-homosexual and transgender “anti-discrimination” laws, if they do not then they would be stripped of their non-profit status. Additionally, any private or religious school would also have to adopt pro-homosexual and transgender “anti-discrimination” policies or they would be taxed and lose their tax-exempt status. In essence SB 323 is saying to these groups and others like them, “Accept homosexual, bisexual and transgender lifestyles in your practices and in your organizations, or be taxed to extinction.”Through the use of threats, liberal legislators want to hold the Boy Scouts, Christian schools and all youth organizations hostage. Here are a few of the groups SB 323 specifically targets:
Young Men’s Christian Association
Young Women’s Christian Association
Special Olympics, Inc.
American & California Youth Soccer Organizations
Pop Warner Football
The public good that such organizations provide is being held hostage to a state-sanctioned belief system that lies contrary to the tenets of these organization’s principles.
ACTION NEEDED TO STOP SB 323!!
SB 323 HAS NOW BEEN IMMEDIATELY SENT TO THE STATE ASSEMBLY. COMMITTEE VOTES CAN HAPPEN ANYTIME AFTER JUNE 3RD.
