Activists confess 'Bible ban' does target 'faith community'
In what could be a huge embarrassment for the online â€śfact-checkerâ€ť Snopes, both a lawmaker and an LGBT activist have admitted a California state bill targets â€śpastorsâ€ť and members of the â€śfaith communityâ€ť who insist a man is a man, not a woman, and vice versa.
The controversy is over a bill that critics have charged effectively would ban the sale of Bibles, because it regards as â€śconsumer fraudâ€ť any commercial transaction that affirms Christian beliefs about the nature of the two genders and homosexual behavior.
WND reported Monday Snopes blasted the charge that the bill would ban Bibles as â€śFalseâ€ť in huge red lettering.
Snopes admits the bill relates to â€śgay conversion therapyâ€ť but states the legislation â€śdoes not mention the Bible, Christianity, or religion at all.â€ť...
The straight meaning of the holy book ban is targeting the faith and religion that would be personal and never the Christ community will take calmly to it. Christ communities have the faith on the bible and never use [URL=http://ninjaessay.com/]]]http://ninjaessays.com[/URL] website for the prayers they just ask to God.
Well, not in this country, Chris. The Russians recently banned all sorts of non-Russian Orthodox Church groups and activities supposedly aimed at Jehovah's Witnesses, but we all know that's not the full reason.
How about a Book of Mormon ban, a Koran ban, a New World Translation ban, and a Latin Vulgate ban?
Yep, always interesting that it's only the God of the Bible, The Creator, who is under constant attack. When have we ever, even one time, heard of any false religion or cult being under fire, banned, or their own religious books being considered hate speech? Satan's human army is growing stronger and stronger, and has grown by leaps and bounds in a very short time in this new age of man, and morally bankrupt times. Thank you, Mr OBama, for opening a box that can't ever be closed back up again.

The bill applies to such conversion therapy as a â€ścommercial service in exchange for monetary compensation.â€ť
Legal experts told Politifact that the bill would have to pass a constitutional test and that the Bible neither promotes or advertises â€śgay conversion therapyâ€ť in its text.
â€śWe rate this claim Mostly False,â€ť Politifact concluded....
The claim has also generated a lot of fierce reaction online. One Washington D.C.-based Catholic priest, Fr. Matthew Schneider, said spreading the false claim can hurt someoneâ€™s credibility, though it was not clear whether he was referring to Allen.

This Allen character appears to be a right-wing nut running for governor.
Snopes won't be surprised, they exist to counter over the top comments
Yet another story that lacks surprise. It would not be surprising if the State of California doesn't attempt to drive Christianity out altogether, pushing the persecuted underground. What despotic regimes like the California government seldom realize is that persecution strengthens the church and empowers her witness.
