Should the State Control the Content of Religious Sermons?

Well, they’re at it again–trying to give the state the power to control what gets said in sermons in our churches.

In cahoots with a gaggle of liberal “clergy,” a California legislator has proposed a “resolution” before the Assembly Judiciary Committee to make churches stop saying there is anything sinful or wrong about homosexual behavior (https://californiafamily.org/2019/ca-legislators-to-tell-pastors-what-to-preach-from-their-pulpits-on-lgbt-behavior-identities/?fbclid=IwAR2K4ptkHLuscKJh-hcYCMKv9hMK0nrRlfdYuX8q2G5LItPBqoXsf65I_XI). The resolution will be presented tomorrow to the full Assembly.

The measure is aimed at stopping “conversion therapy,” which helps patients deal with unwanted sexual attractions… and, its sponsors say, preventing suicide. Leftids insist that homosexuals commit suicide because Christians fail to “affirm” them.

Not so long ago, the lesbian mayor of Houston was forced to pull back on a scheme to require all sermons to be submitted to the city government for its approval before they could be preached. Nationwide outrage caused the plan to be scuttled (https://leeduigon.com/2014/10/30/so-you-think-the-fight-is-over/).

Bob Hope once joked about moving out of California “before they make it compulsory”–homosexuality, that is.

It doesn’t seem so much like a joke anymore.

War is being waged on Christian America. And either Christian America wins, or Christian America dies. Win or die. The Left does not offer any other option.

  1. Yes, it is a battle to the death. Our weapons are not carnal, but spiritual. We are to take every thought captive to the obedience to Christ. President Trump is suppose to have issued an Executive Order that allows pastors to talk about politics in church (that counteracts Pres. LBJ’s censorship decree). But when it comes to Imans advocating terrorist juhadism from mosques in America, I think an exception can be made.

  2. Interesting that millions of Muslims think I am going to hell for my Christianity, but their lack of affirmation has never led me to contemplate suicide! These poor souls, created in the image of God, still have a conscience which accuses them…making them more open to the gospel than many believe.
