 Leviticus 18:22 “Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.”  This verse along with several others like it could outlaw sale of the Bible, Torah, or Quran in California.

 AB2943, authored by local Assemblyman Evan Low, is wending its way through the state legislature right now. This bill, titled “Unlawful business practices: sexual orientation change efforts”, would outlaw the sale of resources, conferences, or paid counseling for anyone with unwanted same-sex desires or gender identity confusion. AB2943 has already passed the Assembly 50-18, and will be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee next week.

This is clearly censorship. It would be illegal for Amazon to sell books aimed at helping those with same-sex struggles. Proponents of the bill claim outlawing the sale of the Bible is a far stretch, but the debate is raging.

In 2012, SB1172 outlawed healthcare professional from counseling minors on sexual orientation. This latest bill would outlaw sought-after sexual orientation counseling, and even books or media on the subject, for anyone of any age. If you agree this is a step too far, here are actions you can take:
