(Worthy News) - California lawmakers held a hearing Tuesday on a controversial resolution that some say condemns religious leaders who oppose homosexuality.
Several pastors in the Golden State say proposed resolution titled Assembly Concurrent Resolution 99 (ACR99) threatens their constitutional rights. The resolution was authored by Assemblyman Evan Low (D-San Jose). It tells Californians of many religions that their beliefs about sexual orientation and the binary, biological nature of gender are unacceptable to the state.
Controversy has been growing over the resolution, which passed the California State Assembly earlier this year, and reportedly urges pastors to affirm LGBT lifestyles. To read the text of the resolution, click here. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
