June 27th SVARW Meeting–Attack on Religious Freedom

The Attack on Religious Freedom in America
Favorite SVARW Speaker, Brad Dacus, Returns!!

We are experiencing an unprecedented level of activism in America to undermine the very bedrock foundations of our nation.

Brad Dacus
Brad Dacus

Beginning as early as Kindergarten, children are being indoctrinated to accept as normal and harmless liberal thinking and deviant behavior. From our schools to our justice department, judicial system, Congress and even the White House, our nation is being infiltrated and influenced by powerful groups that want to destroy the values and rights that made America great. Brad Dacus will be discussing this and other issues as he addresses “The Attack on Religious Freedom and God in America.”

In 1997, Brad Dacus founded Pacific Justice Institute, where he serves as President and continues to defend religious liberties and parental rights. The Pacific Justice Institute has a network of hundreds of volunteer affiliate attorneys and handles more cases on the West Coast than any other organization of its kind.
Brad can be heard weekly on “The Dacus Report” Saturday mornings on KWVE and 100 radio stations around the nation. He has been a guest speaker on numerous radio and television programs, participates weekly in several radio talk show interviews, and has appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America, The Today Show, CNN, Hannity, News Talk TV, CBS Evening News, MSNBC, NBC News, NBC Dateline and many times on the O’Reilly Factor.

Mr. Dacus’ varied public speaking opportunities include public debate, on two occasions, against the president of the ACLU, and on another occasion, against the president of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. He has testified before the United States House of Representatives in Washington, D.C. in opposition to H.R. 1592 Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007. He has also testified numerous times before the California State Legislature on legislation affecting religious freedom and parents’ rights.

More about AB 2943

Banned from Amazon: You Don’t Have to Be Gay: Hope and Freedom for Males Struggling with Homosexuality, Jeff Konrad

 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:
