Bible Preaching Criminalized in Colorado!
By David J. Stewart | June 2008
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves... evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” —2nd Timothy 3:1,13
A new law passed in Colorado, SB 200 (.PDF), makes criminals of God-fearing Christians who preach the Biblical message that homosexuality is a morally reprehensible sin (Romans 1:24-32).
Biblical message now criminalized
Penalties created for those who criticize homosexuality outside church walls

A new Colorado law is helping homosexual activists achieve their goal of forcing Christians to teach biblical condemnation of homosexuality only behind the closed doors of their sanctuaries.
The as-yet untested state law promotes sexual identity "perception" to the level of skin color under state discrimination laws.
Some opponents are calling it a "bona fide censorship law," and top analysts for Focus on the Family, the Christian publishing and broadcast powerhouse, are expressing concern over the "mischief" they expect to follow the signing by Gov. Bill Ritter.
As WND reported, Ritter, a Democrat, struck gender-specific restrooms and locker rooms statewide when he signed the plan into law in May.
The law makes it illegal to deny a person access to public accommodations, including restrooms and locker rooms, based on gender identity or the "perception" of gender identity.
"Who would have believed that the Colorado state legislature and its governor would have made it fully legal for men to enter and use women's restrooms and locker-room facilities without notice or explanation?" said James Dobson, founder of Focus.
"Henceforth, every woman and little girl will have to fear that a predator, bisexual, cross-dresser or even a homosexual or heterosexual male might walk in and relieve himself in their presence," Dobson said.

Here's a quoted portion of Colorado's new law...
SECTION 6. 24-34-701, Colorado Revised Statutes, is amended to read:
24-34-701. Publishing of discriminative matter forbidden.
"No person, being the owner, lessee, proprietor, manager, superintendent, agent, or employee of any place of public accommodation, resort, or amusement, directly or indirectly, by himself or herself or through another person shall publish, issue, circulate, send, distribute, give away, or display in any way, manner, or shape or by any means or method, except as provided in this section, any communication, paper, poster, folder, manuscript, book, pamphlet, writing, print, letter, notice, or advertisement of any kind, nature, or description which THAT is intended or calculated to discriminate or actually discriminates against any disability, race, creed, color, RELIGION, sex, SEXUAL ORIENTATION..."SOURCE: SB_200.pdf
Private Businesses Banned from Exposing the Sin of Homosexuality
So if you own any type of personal business in Colorado, you are legally forbidden from distributing anything that exposes the sin of homosexuality. What ever happened to freedom of speech? — You know... The First Amendment? Private businesses and private citizens should have the right to discriminate as they please. This is America! I believe the right of free association does not require me to associate with people I don't want to do business with. If I don't like you, I shouldn't have to do business with you (and vise versa). In a truly free country (which ours no longer is), you can associate with whomever you want, and you can hire whomever you want, and fire whomever you want.
"And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there." —Ecclesiastes 3:16
If I own a hamburger stand, and I want to display a sign that reads, "God created Adam and Eve; NOT Adam and Steve" — that is my right to do so!!! If a homosexual doesn't like it, then they can eat elsewhere. There are many businesses where I won't go, because I don't like the ways they do things, and that is my right. When our legislatures start restricting what, where, and when we can express our religious convictions, America is doomed!
Heather Does NOT Have Two Mommies!
The law also gives radical gay rights organizations a legal hammer with which to try to force pro-"alternative lifestyle" education into school curricula. The idea of public schools being forced to teach "Billy has two dads" is despicable.
In Massachusetts, the Gay State, kids in kindergarten are regularly read 'Heather Has Two Mommies,' a book about two lesbians raising a child. Of course, in addition to glorifying gender and sexual perversion to kids (a heinous and nasty evil) — the title of the book is a big fat lie. Heather does NOT have two mommies; she has a mommy and a daddy. But sadly, no one will tell her the truth, and she's not allowed to have her daddy. Some woman who engages in perversion with Heather's mommy falsely claims she's a mommy, and the lie Heather's told will have to be rammed down the gullets of millions of innocent school kids. Folks, this is all vicious evil targeted at our children.
By the time the liberals finish with your kids, they won't know what they are, and it will be illegal to tell a boy that he's supposed to be a boy. Colorado is joining Californication, Sin City and the Gay State as part of Queermerica.
The Deadly Consequences of Accusing Christians
Do you remember the account of Daniel in the Old Testament (Daniel 6:7-24)? A law was made that forbade anyone from petitioning any god or man besides king Darius. But Daniel prayed to God anyway. As a consequence, Daniel was thrown into a den of starving lions, and left for dead. But praise God, in the end, Daniel's life was spared and it was the evil men who had falsely accused Daniel of wrongdoing who were devoured by the lions... "And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den" (Daniel 6:24).
Careful notice that Daniel DID break the law; BUT God punished the men who proposed that law, and nurtured it into legislation, because the law turned Christians into criminals. Is this not exactly what is going on today in America? Christian business owners, who have much to lose in court, are being turned into criminals for faithfully obeying Ephesians 5:11... "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them." The word "reprove" in Ephesians 5:11 comes from the Greek word, elencho, and means "to expose." It is every Christian's Biblical duty to expose homosexuality as a morally reprehensible sin which brings the judgment of God (Romans 1:32).
Where are the Daniels today? Where are the good men today who will continue to obey the Scriptures, God's Law, and refuse to stop doing right because of wicked men who outlaw righteousness?
In the Supreme Court case of Boy Scouts vs. Dale, where the Supreme Court upheld the Boy Scouts' unalienable right to not have to have sodomites as scoutmasters, our entire freedom of association in this country was protected (for the moment) by just one single vote on the Supreme Court. That's a tiny margin for a country which is supposed to be the land of the free. Unfortunately, the same thing isn't happening in Colorado, and the Sodomites have gained a big victory over the righteous... "It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment" (Proverb 18:5).
Let the heathen rage, God is still on His throne. Homosexuals have but a short time to enjoy their wickedness, because God will not be mocked (Galatians 6:7). Hell will be hot enough! It is utterly hypocritical that homosexuals can parade their sick and sinful lifestyle up-and-down the streets of America, and lawmakers approve; while at the same time Christian business owners are made criminals in the eyes of the law for even posting a sign in criticism of homosexuality.
Just as those evil men, and their families, who were cast into a pit of ravenous lions to be torn to shreds, so will those evil people today, who are behind such sinister laws as SB 200, be punished by God for their wickedness against Christians. Again, I ask you, where are the Daniels today? Where are the godly men and women who will continue to obey God's Law, by exposing homosexuality for the evil it is, and refuse to stop doing right because of wicked men who outlaw righteousness? America needs voices!

That's just sick! Have they no shame at GLSEN? Can you imagine, trying to teach Ronald that it's ok to stick something in Timmy's backside? ...or that it's ok for a boy to become a girl? What has American society deteriorated to? It is tragic. Any honest child knows that God created Adam and Eve; not Adam and Steve. GLSEN are a bunch of sickos!
