CA Resolution Threatens Pastors and Counselors

SACRAMENTO, CA -- Dr. Kevin Mannoia, Azusa Pacific University chaplain and the former head of the National Association of Evangelicals, 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.

The California State Assembly passed a resolution authored by Assemblyman Evan Low, known as ACR 99, which calls on religious leaders and others with “moral influence” to affirm homosexuality and “transgenderism”  and to accept that Christian efforts to help people with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion are “ineffective, unethical and “harmful.” As a resolution, ACR 99 does not have the force of law but will be persuasive for some policymakers. It will now go to the state Senate for a vote.

Last year Low authored AB 2943, a bill that would have established government-enforced censorship of counselors who wanted to provide and consenting adults who wanted to receive talk therapy for unwanted same-sex attractions, behavior, or gender confusion. It also tried to ban sales of printed materials and books expressing the viewpoint that unwanted same-sex attractions or gender confusion can be reduced or eliminated. Low withdrew the bill on the last day of the legislative session.
