--This bill would gut the First Amendment of private schools and other religious institutions.
Here is key text from the bill which is raising alarms all over the state:
"A California state bill its sponsors say will prevent discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity at private universities is threatening to expose faith-based schools to enormous legal threats, school officials warn."
This bill will allow the state to discriminate against private schools of faith.
Under the guise of ending discrimination against "gender identity and sexual orientation", this bill is actually aiding and abetting the aggressive, anti-science, destructive LGBT agenda.
This bill must be stopped.
Californians from all over the state will be calling their assembly representatives to stop this monstrous intrusion on the First Amendment.
