California Bill Could Ban Sale Of Some Christian Books, Including The Bible

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

WEB Notes: There is no way on God’s green earth the Bible is going to be banned in the once great state of California. Yet, if you read the bill itself, it sure would cover the banning of some of the Bible’s teachings. Will Christians in the state stand for it? They better not. This is just another example of radicals going radical. If you want to believe you are a woman, when you were born a man. That is your business, but don’t you dare tell me what I can and cannot say. Don’t you dare tell me what I can and cannot teach! If you do not like what I have to say, you click the little ‘x’ in your browser and you can make it all go away. Some snow flakes melt a little too easy.

It’s interesting, for example, that Chait makes the argument just as the California State Assembly is set to vote on a bill that would actually — among other things — ban the sale of books expressing orthodox Christian beliefs about sexual morality.

Yes, ban the sale of books.

Assembly Bill 2943 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.”

The bill then defines “sexual orientations 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.” (Emphasis added.)

This is extraordinarily radical. Christian orthodoxy is simple — regardless of a person’s desires (their “orientation”), the standard of right conduct is crystal clear. Sex is reserved for marriage between a man and a woman. When it comes to “gender expression,” there is no difference between “sex” and “gender,” and the Christian response to gender dysphoria is compassion and treatment, not indulgence and surgical mutilation.

  1. Maybe if we could have enforced voted ID, California would not be in this mess. There are a lot of conservatives, Christians, people who hate how this state is being degraded but we get out voted by those who should not even be voting (or here for that matter).
    Voter ID (enforced) or this problem will spread like a cancer.

  2. if you ban the books,(written communication) how long before their teaching in any form (school, church, ministries on the airwaves) are also criminalized?!

    • None who conform to the liberal view! All to those who do not! And you see it presently as I speak! Google, facebook, YouTube, Twitter and abroad! ??

  3. The Bible speaks of a the great “famine” of his word. I had a hard time believing that in America. Perhaps this is that time. When punk communist and drug addicted lieberals declare the word of god to be anathema to this nation?

    • That would be a literal fulfillment for sure. However, I believe it is alive and well today. People are quite literally starving for the Word of God. How many church houses teach more than a couple of Bible verses on Sunday? That is where I see the fulfillment of Amos 8:11.

  4. To the Christian people of Calif, with the statement that I just read—- I suggest that you leave as soon as possible. Being that the statement came from the gov there. I would not put it past himself to teach Calif a lesson. earthquake possible??? For me it was like getting a slap in the face –possible banning the bible, that in its self is not good. –even Christian books– Your gov. is sick in the head. ot has he gone insane with power.???

  5. Grrrr!? Bugs Bunny said! “This means war!”

    Not against flesh and blood, says the Word, but against power’s and principalities on high! It sure seem’s to have high influence on the flesh no doubt that makes the war directed toward ourselves! But it is indeed a spiritual matter! Send it back from whence it came! Spiritual Christian armor on and in place! Charge!!! Deflect thoes fiery darts! ??? Hallelujah! Amen.

  6. There is a practical aspect here. The basic family unit is the building block of society and the foundation of it. If you want to break society and absorb it into something different such as a copy of an insect colony then you have to destroy the basic foundation the original is built upon. This will end in disaster but it does not mean the idiots will not try.

  7. Romans chapter 1! It’s very clear the Devil hates the Absolute timeless trues in Holy Scripture (Holy Bible) but is it not interesting, these God hater are shaking their fist & gnashing there teeth at the One Who Can Truly Save them from a Horrific Eternity meant for the Devil & minions while they are standing on ground just Ripe (geologically speaking) Judgment! If it were not for the Christian in the State Judgment may have already been implemented! Banning the Bible, woe, the Manual for life here in this life and the only way to Eternity to be with our Loving (agape) God Lord Jesus Christ!

    note; the Lord knows how to bring fear into the lives which in turn brings one to Jesus! Maybe we all need some shake rattle & roll?!
    Only the fool claims that theres no God – A prestigious Education often breeds oxy moronic ignorance of logic, the perfect ticket to the Lake of Fire!
    I realize my comment(s) may not lure the lost soul to Christ Jesus but, the haters of the Gospel don’t intend coming to Christ Jesus anyway (casting pearls before swine) & w/out doubt, Jesus will correct me! I just get ticked off by these hate goons slandering my Lord Jesus Christ my Savior!

    note; Those who finally come to Christ during Daniel’s 70th week will pay a huge price – I am concerned by (I) giving the Devil ammo against them. I also realize, Sa’tan ammo is his hate of the Lord Jesus Christ. You can not get into Scripture w/out knowing it’s a supernatural book of absolute total wisdom! After 70 years I can say (w/out any reservations that His Word (all of it) is 1 hundred percent spot on & that He is a God of Justice but also faithful and true – I am not ashamed of the Gospel nor were the Apostles, all but 1 were put to death in horrific ways, you don’t die like this for a lie! Those who follow Esau are promised 72 virgins, procreation (eternity wise) will be a thing of the past, no longer needed – so they Martyr themselves for lust, not the one that represents the koran!
    If I discouraged anyone seeking Jesus Salvation, please forgive me. I’m just a bit ticked when the Adversary mocks our Savior the Almighty! Jesus is the only way – the price that He paid for our Redemption was horrifically costly – no one killed Jesus, He gave up His Spirit To the Father in Heaven – we can’t blame it on the Jews, blame on the Devil, in the Garden!


    Heb …13:6…


  8. Don’t tell me your shocked, don’t even. Anyone with a pulse knows what is coming down the pike. The time to prepare for this type of tyranny has long since passed.

    • Do not give up, you continue to stand tall and strong for God. Keep up the good fight as we have been instructed.

      1 Timothy 6:12
      12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

  9. Okay, that’s it. We need to go to Sacramento as a team, and make a citizens arrest on these creatures. We have rights and when God is for you, nobody can be against you. If we do not take a peaceful stand, then we stand for NOTHING.

  10. Unfortunately, you misunderstand how liberalism works. California has become so bad, many have, and are, leaving the state to go to others. They take their messed up liberal values, and try to push that on to the new communities they move to. This has happened to my home state of Colorado. Due to heavy influx of people leaving Cali, the state now has massive problems with crime, and have adapted heavily into the liberal mindset. I haven’t lived in Colorado for quite a few years, but am severely disappointed in what it has become, and would never move back

    • I am a native Coloradan. 7 generations long. And I couldn’t agree more! This state has become a big time blue state over the past 20ish years! Leftist infiltration in all four dynasties, including gun control! The rural farm communities are about the only ones remaining who fish from the right-side of the boat! And they’ll probably make that illegal too!!!

      As an employee of the Dept. Of Transportation. The highest number of newby license plates I see here are from California! And they don’t know how to drive in the snow either! ?

      BTW it has driven the median price of homes here to California levels also! Absolutely nuts what rent and mortgages have risen too here comparatively on the national level!
      Legalized marijuana was a magnet! Which I remember correctly? Colorado was a first to do so!? Distribution Shacks on every dang corner! A hefty duty sanctuary city to boot! Vagrants at an all-time high!
      According to the DOT their have been several years of reported migration numbers into Denver as high as 10k to 13k per month and they are NOT decreasing as of yet!
      The DOT is freaking out on traffic congestion and how they will be able to accommodate infastructurally speaking??? And they’re not the only Dept’s. of concern! Ugly! Ugly!
      I would like to retire in New Jerusalem, but if that doesn’t happen before I die! I’ll have to move someplace else to retire until then! Colorful Colorado ain’t so colorful anymore! Unfortunately!?? Come Lord Jesus! ???

      As Brandon had stated, and until that time comes. Stand your ground in the good of God’s Word! ???

  11. I can’t wait when this law passes to go against it! I will be even more vocal because as a Christian to live in these times and know that you can do your part to take it to Satan and stand against his hordes of lost wicked souls is exciting.

    Knowing my souls is God’s cause that where I’m heading cause I choose to be his son I have no problem to live in the hell hole called California to be that drop of oil in this stank dead water of souls around me.

    Your time is coming! Can’t stop the word of GOD! In Jesus’s name!

    • The idea is not to allow the bill to pass to begin with. Once laws are implemented they are like taxes, they typically do not go away.

      • So let’s just ask our left leaning satan loving friends friends to do us Christians a favor and don’t vote for it. Or what’s your idea? Let me just say it, you have no faith and that is why you are worrying about a pathetic law coming into existence like it changes the word of GOD.

        That’s why the law is going to pass, because people either are with satan or people like you that worry because you do not have faith. Plain and simple.

        • We are all on the same side. I do not worry, I place my faith, hope and trust in our Heavenly Father. After all, we started this site to help people understand not only the Bible, but what is transpiring in the world.

          That is what we are doing here. We urge our readers to take action, to make a stand, not just accept the cards we are dealt. God does not like lazy people, He likes men and woman of action. So take some action.

          Blaze, I have heard people say what you have said. Once the bill passes then I will shout. No you will not. How many people said the same thing about the TSA and look how complacent we are as a people today. The psychology being played against you is far greater than you can play against them.

          On another note. You would be surprised to learn most Californians do not embrace liberalism. Look at this map for the recent Prop 8. All that green are people who voted against gay marriage, but guess what the state did?

  12. Used book stores have a hard time selling Bibles. When they buy a large collection of books (many boxes), they usually get a few Bibles. These, they throw out. Ask them to save these Bibles for you and then give them away free. A guy was doing this on Craig’s List and offering boxes of Bibles free to any people that wanted them. I got a few boxes and now I can give them to people when the government makes them illegal. When the fight for freedom comes, some will take their guns out of hiding, others their Bibles.

  13. California, the pathetic moronic state hellbent on destroying itself. Let them do that and we will watch everything roll into the sea with pleasure. Bye Bye ignorant people. People have the right to choose what they believe and read. Nobody can take my faith away. Nobody. They are almost bankrupt. Can’t wait until all of the immigrants start taking over the gated communities and camping on the hellywood stars property. But oh no……………they want us to cope with their reality but feel they are above that. Screw them! If that is what they support, let them eat crow.

    • Sounds like there aren’t many true Christians here with all the aggression and name calling going on.
      I do like Dick Tracy’s comment about saving the bibles to give away though. But just how many would actually accept The Word & really read the entire book!?

      • The commenter is obviously upset. This article has gone a little “viral” today and is being commented on by non-regulars so far.

      • Joni you can’t be a true Christian. Christians never question anyone faith. The only one that truly understand the level of my faith is God and Jesus themselves. No one directly was called names but their actions are. as stated. I have read the King James Version and it was the best book I ever read. I read it as it is necessary as it keeps my heart and faith going strong. Obviously your comments are ignorant(not knowledgeable). Those who choose to be real Christians love the word and its part of their lives. Not that many will accept just as is written. Their loss,not mine. You need to read girl. You are not educated in its meanings. Stop being so sensitive. There was nothing personal in my post.

  14. This could only happen in the land of fruits and nuts often times referred to as the People’s Repubic of Kalifornia.
