8 Californian residents are frauds? View the video below to hear former homosexuals, former lesbians and those who deal with same sex attraction share their stories of hope in this condensed video of their life experiences. California Assembly Bill 2943 (Low-D) would make any monetary exchange for literature, counseling, pastoral counseling, sexual purity conferences, or any other method, to help those with unwanted same sex attraction an illegal business practice. Assemblyman Evan Low’s bill calls these attempts fraudulent and deceptive.

CHURCH UNITED AND TYLER & BURCH, LLP WILL HOLD PRESS CONFERENCE
TO DISCUSS WHITE SENATOR’S REFUSAL TO MEET WITH LATINO PASTORS

State Senator Henry Stern’s refusal to meet with 200 of his Latino pastor constituents to discuss his upcoming vote on Assembly Bill 2943 has compelled Church United and Tyler & Bursch, LLP to take action.

NORTHRIDGE, CA, June 8 — Church United and Tyler & Bursch, LLP will hold a press conference on Friday at 6:00 p.m. at the Houses of Light Church in Northridge regarding State Senator Henry Stern’s (D-Canoga Park) refusal to meet with his constituents to discuss his upcoming vote on Assembly Bill (AB) 2943.

Despite multiple attempts to schedule a meeting with Senator Stern, 200 Latino and 20 non-Latino pastor constituents and 400-500 of their congregants were repeatedly denied. They were told the Senator would not be available to meet with them, despite being scheduled to be in his District on these dates.

His constituents requested to schedule a meeting to discuss how Senator Stern would vote on AB 2943 – specifically regarding the bill’s implications for churches and pastors. The bill is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee in Sacramento on June 12. Senator Stern is one of the seven members on the committee.

Assembly Bill 2943 is a proposed law that promotes viewpoint discrimination by banning pastors, churches, and retail outlets from charging for any product or service that encourages an individual to overcome unwanted same-sex attraction or gender-identity confusion. If passed, the ability to provide biblical counseling, host purity conferences, or sell materials (including Bibles) to support overcoming these issues would become illegal. As an alternative, individuals would have the option to receive counseling that encourages the “exploration and development” of attraction towards individuals of the same sex.

Plainly put, AB 2943 (Evan Low-D, LGBT Caucus) violates free speech and promotes bias and viewpoint discrimination – which prohibits our liberties as declared in California’s Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Scheduled Speakers:
1) Pastor Netz Gomez: Senior pastor of the Houses of Light Church in Northridge, the most listened to Spanish language pastor in the United States (with Catholic and Evangelical audiences), and Host of Radio Nueva Vida
2) Rob McCoy: Mayor Pro-Tem and Senior Pastor at Godspeak Calvary Chapel in Thousand Oaks
3) Pastor Jim Domen, M. Div.: Former homosexual and Founder of Church United
4) Kris Olsen: LPGA & Golf Pro and Former lesbian, Founder Coming Out Again
5) Nada Higuera: Attorney, Tyler and Bursch

All speakers and other pastors will be available for interviews after the press conference.

Church United will also be registering voters on site – to reinforce and uphold the values of individuals’ personal choice and freedom of speech, expression, and thought – as California Senate and Assembly Members refuse to listen to their constituents regarding AB 2943.

     Ronald Reagan Federal Building

Florida Pulse Nightclub Survivor and 10 Formers (Homosexuals, Lesbians & Same Sex Attracted), Outraged over Proposed Ban of Sexual Freedom Will Speak.

Black, brown, and white pastors representing over 700 California Church United Evangelical Pastors traveling from Alameda, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Diego counties, will also speak regarding the upcoming State Senate hearing on California Assembly Bill 2943, the proposed law that would prohibit speech and deny the right to choose.

The California Evangelical pastors of Church United will introduce to the public over 25 compelling men and women of varying ethnicities who are former homosexuals, former lesbians and same-sex attracted and who have benefited by the very services AB 2943 intends to ban.

This bill’s hostility toward consenting adults who have chosen to live a life in accordance with their faith and identity as a Christian will prohibit them from purchasing supportive books or from obtaining supportive counseling. However, in contrast, they would be able to receive counseling that offers encouragement towards “exploration and development” of attraction toward individuals of the same sex.

Plainly put, Assembly Bill 2943 (Evan Low, D-San Jose, LGBT Caucus) violates free speech and promotes viewpoint discrimination.
