“Look, we have to stop with political correctness. We have to get down to creating a country that’s not going to have the kind of problems that we’ve had with people flying planes into the World Trade Centers, with shootings in California, with all the problems all over the world. We have to find out what’s going on. And we can’t be the stupid country any more. We’re laughed at all over the world. We can’t let people come into our country and break our borders.”  (Fox Business 2016 Republican 2-tier debate, January 14, 2016)

H.B. 849 Unisex in Public Accommodations
Separate Restrooms for Males and Females would be Illegal in Public Facilities

H.B. 849, “The Georgia Civil Rights in Public Accommodations Act,” was introduced January 27th by Representative Rich Golick, and assigned to his House Judiciary Non Civil Committee. It requires nondiscrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin in any place of public accommodations. H.B. 849 was introduced, specifically, as a means to add sexual orientation as a protected civil rights status. That was done in committee when the word “sex” was added. Meaning, it will require sex neutral public accommodations in Georgia.

Exception is Ambiguous
H.B. 849 “shall not apply to a private establishment, except¹ to the extent that facilities of such private establishment perform as a place of public accommodation.”
Conversation with the author of H.B. 849: “What will you do if someone tries to amend H.B. 849 with ‘gender,’ ‘gender identity’ or ‘sexual orientation’?” His reply, “No gender, no gender identity, but I don’t know about sexual orientation.” Then he was asked, “Does sexual orientation include gender and gender ID?” He didn’t answer, but, yes, it does. Currently, 58 identifications are acknowledged sexual orientations. Some of the 58 are listed in footnote 3.
The U.N. is lobbying for five² genders; Australia’s Human Rights Commission acknowledges 23 genders; Facebook and the Australian Broadcasting Commission recognize 583 genders.

Background. In the February 8th subcommittee meeting, Representative Taylor Bennett proposed amending H.B. 849 to prohibit discrimination based on “religion, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, or veteran’s status.” The subcommittee defeated that amendment 6-4, but he offered it again the next day. Then, Representative Beskin offered “sex” as a one-word amendment and it passed. Then, the full committee voted 8-5 to pass the amended bill into the Rules Committee where sex should be deleted, because its multiple genders (behaviors) have been expanded far beyond natural male/female contact.

Give this message to the Rules Committee: “Delete the word ‘sex’ from H.B. 849
or defeat the bill.” Note: See page four to learn about students’
right to privacy in restrooms, etc.

ACTION – Oppose. Call any or all on the following list and ask them to defeat the bill or remove the word “sex.” House Rules Committee Representatives Meadows, Ch., 404 656-5141; Harrell, V-Ch., 656-0254; Richard Smith, Sec., 656-6831; Abrams, 656-5058; Ballinger, 656-0254; Benton, 463-3793; Burns, 656-5052; Cooper, 656-5069; Dempsey, 463-2247; Dickson, 463-2247; Drenner, 656-0202; Ehrhart, 463-2247; Evans, 656-6372; Fleming, 656-0152; Golick, 656-5943; Greene,656-0202; Hugley, 656-5058; Jackson, 656-0314; Jan Jones, 656-5072; Knight, 656-5099; Morris, 656-5115; Parrish, 463-2247; Peake, 656-5132; Alan Powell, 463-3793; Jay Powell, 656-7855; Ramsey, 656-5024; Rice, 656-5912; Carl Rogers, 656-7855; Terry Rogers, 651-7737; Setzler, 656-7857; Sims, 656-7857; Lynn Smith, 656-7149; Smyre, 656-0116; Stephens, 656-5115; Weldon, 656-5105; Willard, 656-5125; and Al Williams, 656-6372.

Pastor Protection Act

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, September 18, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Lest we forget: The U.S. Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech.” That protection is provided for everyone in the United States, including professionals in what may be called the “religious industry,” but such professionals have been targeted, lately.

Last October five pastors in Houston, Texas were subpoenaed to turn over sermons in which they referenced the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, which prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity and homosexuality in general, i.e. moral beliefs.

Since Christianity includes moral doctrine, the pastors took a stand for religious liberty, resisted the order, and public backlash caused officials to back down. But the situation revealed such antagonism toward Christianity that freedom-loving Texas legislators passed the “Pastor Protection Act” on June 11th, and it became law a couple of weeks ago on September 1st.

College Board & APUSH

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, March 6, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

In his January 28th resolution Senator William Ligon demanded that the College Board revise the Advanced Placement U.S. History course (APUSH), that approximately 14,000 Georgia students take every year. Senator Ligon S.R. 80 listed the reasons APUSH MUST be changed or replaced.

Traditionally, the course presented a balanced view of American history that prepared students for college-level history courses. That was then, but this is what’s happening now.

The newly released framework for APUSH was radically changed to present a revisionist view of American history. It emphasizes the negative aspects of U.S. history, but omits or minimizes the positive aspects.

For example: APUSH disparages discussions of America’s Founding Fathers, the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the religious influences on our nation’s history and a multitude of other critical topics that have been time-honored subjects of the APUSH course.

The framework presents a biased inaccurate view of many important themes and events in American history, such as the motivations and actions of seventeenth to nineteenth century settlers, the nature of the American free enterprise system, the course and resolution of the Great Depression, and the development of and victory in the Cold War.
