California is on its way to passing a new law that makes it illegal to call transgender senior citizens a pronoun they don't like. For example, if an elderly person who was born male and lives in a long-term care facility wishes to be called "her" or "she," the workers there had better do it or face the consequences. The proposed law would even apply to Christian facilities.
SB 219, titled the "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident's Bill of Rights," states, "It shall be unlawful for a long-term care facility or facility staff to.... willfully and repeatedly fail to use a resident's preferred name or pronouns after being clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns." It imposes fines and jail time on any long-term care employee who refuses to use transgender pronouns. Fines for repeat offenders could be as high as $1,000 and a jail term of up to a year....

Those parents are child abusers by inflicting on their child that transgender nonsense.
I suggested to my Pastor, recently, that we lead the way into biological truth, by relabeling our bathrooms so there is no misunderstanding or leeway for the "confused..." XY XX Because at the end of the day, your chromosomes don't lie. It doesn't matter what you "feel" you are. If God gave you an X and Y, you are male. That should eliminate issues.
an astute student of the bible would notice that this is nothing more or less that bringing back the pagan religions and the s@xu"@l abuse of the temple. this is dealt with in scripture with balaam the donkey. when they went into the land, God told them not to make them into eunichs for their perverted worship.
It is interesting to note that it is the wicked, reprobate and criminal who will abide by these laws. Thus the morally inept will keep this law.
Those who like western history keep the moral laws which originate from the Bible will be the people who will find themselves castigated.
Proverbs 17:15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD."
Proverbs 18:3 When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach"
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!"
May the Lord rebuke them according to His Word. Amen.
What is so shocking is that this law in the "People's Republic of California" applies to old people's homes, nursing homes, care homes, homes for special needs people, and no doubt to hospitals,even special custodial places and so on.
These are people who are often unable to make such decisions as to what sex they want to be anyway.
The staff at these places and the other residents are threatened with these iniquitous regulations, and being fined and going to jail, and no Christian places will be exempt.
Will these miserable bureaucrats really haul elderly people to jail, or care staff, and by the way, will these wicked regulations apply to Muslim establishments? I don't think the Muslims will put up with it.
Every Christian truly evangelical church and society should protest vigorously, and every Christian care home and facility should flatly refuse to obey these unconstitutional and wicked regulations.

I hope you all take this brief news article as another bit of warning evidence we are only about a half step away from SERIOUS, LIFE AT STAKE, PERSECUTION
My question for us is: Will this PERSECUTION be because we are so on fire with Love for Jesus Christ, going into the dark evil places where nobody in their flesh really wants to go, with a message meant to convict and warn sinners to flee the wrath to come, to thoroughly repent of the sin they love and believe in the Savior who commands a costly holy obedience they do not want to pay, nobody in their flesh wants to give, to people who don't want to hear because they hate God, they hate the Truth, and they hate the light
OR WILL this frightful inescapable persecution come because a foolish complacency and depraved indifference has made 'us' salt that has lost it savor where there isn't any real difference with the world that hates God without excuse, a "salt" that is good for nothing anymore except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
So, if this in anyway applies to you, repent NOW, and seek a fresh empowering by the Spirit of God to be a powerful loving obedient humble praying witness of the Lord Jesus Christ, even if to do so cost you your life, or us ours.
Read 1984 folks, human observation of society detached from universal, biblical principles is what Orwell put to writing. This is the cake the world baked, now they have to eat it. Become a lemming or a martyr, no more riding the fence "Christians".
This isn't restricted to ultra liberal California. A teacher around here refused to refer to a little 5yr old "transgender" boy, as a girl and as a she. The parents were offended and furious.

I wonder if this would apply to written medical notes, diagnoses, treatment plans etc; for if it does, there could be some serious mistakes made in diagnosing and treating patients as the actual (not the imagined) gender is critical in the treatment of many disease syndromes. These people are fools, and are potentially placing residents in harms way. I would hope that the physicians that oversee these facilities would speak up and bring some sanity into the picture!
It brings tears to my eyes when I consider the agonizing, heart searching and gut wrenching decisions that California politicians are forced to make day in and day out. No doubt, that before passing these bills, many hours are spent in prayer, in the Word, and in fastings.
