The language in ACR 99 is further concerning in the sense that it links Bible-based counseling to depression, suicide, rejection, isolation, and even suicide “among LGBTQ and questioning individuals.”

The Golden State has decided to scrap the First Amendment with the passage of a new resolution that forbids religious leaders from opposing homosexuality from the pulpit.

Evan Low and three dozen other members of the California State Assembly were successful in passing ACR 99, as it’s officially called, which dictates that Christian pastors and others must affirm the religion of LGBTQ before their congregations, even when doing so violates their own beliefs and convictions.

With the help of Dr. Kevin Mannoia, Azusa Pacific University‘s current chaplain and the former head of the National Association of Evangelicals, ACR 99 passed with flying colors, effectively stamping out religious freedom in California with the stroke of a pen.

“Mannoia recently testified before the judiciary committee in favor of ACR 99 and directed pastors and counselors to affirm LGBT behaviors,” reads a press release issued by the religious freedom group Liberty Counsel.

“In a letter submitted to legislators, Mannoia wrote, ‘On behalf of some Christian pastors and church leaders, I write to express various levels of support for the Resolution ACR 99 dealing with Conversion Therapy and LGBTQ persons,’” the press release goes on to state.

According to Liberty Counsel, Mannoia “has become a prop for the LGBT agenda by directing pastors and counselors to reject biblical views of sexuality and deny counseling for those struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion.”

As we previously reported, so-called “conversion therapy” is under relentless attack not just in California but all across the country as LGBTQ activists push to eliminate the freedom of faith-based counselors and therapists to help people who don’t actually want to be LGBTQs.

Widely consider the ultimate “survival” water filter, the Big Berkey is made of stainless steel and has been laboratory verified for high-efficiency removal of heavy metals by CWC Labs, with tests personally conducted by Mike Adams. Explore more here.

“It’s really disappointing that he would put aside the truth of the matter just to gain some favor, perhaps a seat at the table of this discussion,” stated Roger Gannam, Liberty Counsel’s vice president of legal affairs, about Mannoia’s obvious fall from grace.

“Everyone deserves respect in this discussion and dialogue about what kind of counseling should be allowed in California. But to join in a document as Dr. Mannoia has done, that really slanders the church and slanders good counselors and good patients. It’s unexplainable and it’s really inexcusable.”

ACR 99 isn’t about protecting human lives, it’s about criminalizing Christianity

While ACR 99 isn’t technically binding in the sense that it’s a legal obligation per se, it does fling wide open the door for anyone who violates it to be falsely accused of committing a “hate crime” – for which the penalties in many areas are growing increasingly steep.

The language in ACR 99 is further concerning in the sense that it links Bible-based counseling to depression, suicide, rejection, isolation, and even suicide “among LGBTQ and questioning individuals.”

So, you can imagine a hypothetical scenario in which a brain-addled youth who was previously indoctrinated at his public school goes in for biblical counseling on the matter, only to eventually take his own life. Rather than blame this suicide on the public school for damaging this poor child’s senses with its LGBTQ propaganda, the courts may blame the Christian counselor, based on ACR 99’s implications.

Again, this is a hypothetical scenario that, as far as we know, hasn’t actually happened in this manner. But it could, thanks to ACR 99’s discriminatory intent against Christianity and the Bible, which are in no way aligned with the LGBTQ agenda.

“There is no defined, taught, or organized system of therapy known as ‘conversion therapy,’” notes one Charisma News commenter about the deception of ACR 99.

“That term doesn’t exist outside of an invented boogeyman. We must remember, when ‘conversion therapy’ is cited, what is actually happening is the demonization and attempted criminalization of any sort of counseling that dissents from the orthodox stances of the homosexual lobby. It is purely political.”
