Governor Brown Attacks the 1st Amendment; Signs Bill With Jail Time for Refusing to Use Transgender Pronouns

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

SACRAMENTO – In a shocking disregard for the privacy rights of seniors and constitutional freedoms of speech and religion, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law SB 219 yesterday.

While no doubt well-intentioned, the bill from California state senator Scott Weiner (D-San Francisco) will inflict severe penalties on long-term care center workers if they fail to deny biological facts by using “preferred pronouns” for any patients identifying as transgender. If employees “willfully or repeatedly violate” SB 219, they could be charged with a misdemeanor and subject to punishment of a $1000 fine, or even up to one year in jail.

SB 219 also mandates gender be determined by self-identification, not biology. As a result, female senior citizens will be forced to share bedrooms and other intimate facilities with biological men if those men identify as a women.

“Compelled speech violates free speech,” said Jonathan Keller, President of California Family Council. “SB 219 forces people to use words that aren’t even in the dictionary.”

“SB 219 tries to place ‘misgendering’ someone on the same level as physical abuse,” Keller continued. “Everyone should be treated with respect in nursing homes, and that includes those who believe gender is based on biology, not feelings.”

  3. This isn’t a violation of the first amendment. If you knew what that amendment was for then you’d realize that. Saying this infringes the first amendment is essentially the same thing as saying that an establishment such as a bar who kicks you out for “offensive speech” is infringing when they have every right to kick your ass out for disturbing the other patrons. This still doesn’t change the fact that this is a stupid law even though the motives behind the law is perfectly sound.

    • I strongly disagree. Your “bar” example isn’t an accurate representation of what this law does. I will change your bar example slightly to make my point. This bill isn’t telling a private business what speech it can prohibit within their own establishment. This bill gives the government the authority to punish a private business for the views of it’s employees. It would be like the government coming to a private owned bar and arresting the bar tender because the he verbalized religious or political views the government finds offensive. The government has no authority to come into a private business and ban speech it finds offensive and it has no right to compel the employees of a private business to say words that violate the owner’s sincerely held beliefs. What do you think the First Amendment is for, if not to protect speech that the government finds offensive?

  5. YHWH LORD WILLING: gender id may be a “biological” and, more importantly and quite relatedly a Theological-God Given one. God Determines our and all gender, as “unconventionally manifest” as it may seem to us:

    “Closer to Christ”, Lord Willing, a Scriptural reflection and study related to trans* (and also some non-binary and other) stuff. thanks and thank/praise God/Lord, (God Is Good, all the time, all the time, God Is Good) HalleluJah! Amen!
    Lord Love yall and all and The Lord Himself, Lord Willing, as ought i and all…

    I think one problem faced is, Lord Willing, Lord Forgive, a false notion, that should not be present! That of “one such as yourself” couldn’t or shouldn’t ever find God, have God, know God, love God, be loved by God, etc. One that strives to put a caveat on Christian songs such as “All Are Welcome” and “Come As You Are”. Well, Lord Willing, Truth Is all can and should find, have, know and love God, be loved by Him, and love and serve Lord and neighbor.

    “For GOD So Loved the world, He Gave His Only Son, that whosoever believes
    in Him might not perish, but might have Eternal Life.” John 3:16

    “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will not cast out.
    For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him Who
    sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
    John 6:37-40

    Another, also Biblically addressed, is:
    “ …My people go into exile for their lack of knowledge; And their honorable men are famished, And their multitude is parched with thirst.”
    Isaiah 5:13 NASB

    “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…”
    Hosea 4:6a NASB

    Isn’t that “what’s up” in terms of folks who have issue with us or transition? Misunderstanding, ignorance, not knowing and perhaps in some instances, for at least a moment, not desiring or “caring to know”?
    But are we or at least me ever guilty of this as well? with cis-(white-hetero-)? The churched? Etc.?

    However, let me bring some news of oneness and unity for you though, trans and fellow travelers. Some wonderful news, trans-community! Great News! It’s a shame if you don’t yet know it, and/or if nobody’s told you yet…
    …you, Lord Willing, may be closer to Christ than you think or you know!

    Put out notions of pens to the bathroom bills or perceptions of ignorance, and consider what The LORD Says:
    “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
    Matthew 5:10-12

    Have you ever thought about this Passage or sentiment on the “flip side” of the usual? Many in our community have likely experienced, whether directly, through family, or via some of the media message supposedly portraying “Christians” and “Christianity” what I’ve come to call being “church-burned”. Not welcome in the pews “as you are”. Or told that who you are isn’t actually you. Or perhaps the subject of whispers, gossip, or some form of apparent willful or otherwise ignorance or discontent. Perhaps told that in some opinion “The Bible Says” you aren’t or can’t be you. Told your “condition” is incompatible with a Christian life. Whether “religious” in motivation or otherwise, some are beaten or furthermore killed essentially for being trans, as we see here tonight. Have you in the community been persecuted for His Name’s Sake? Blessed are you, Lord Willing, HalleluJah! Amen!

    In the case of transman Alex Salinas he’s told by some Catholic officiation that him being “padrino” for his nephew is “impossible”. That’s what some people may say, but, Lord Willing, what HE Says:

    “for nothing will be impossible for God.””
    Luke 1:37 NABRE

    Jesus looked at them and said, “For human beings this is impossible, but for God all things are possible.””
    Matthew 19:26 NABRE

    We are Blessed as a community in these times, as medical information and treatments as well as societal adaptions and adjustments such as documentation rectification becomes significantly more known in some instances, available in others, though there is still quite some way to go. We can be grateful to be medically and legally recognized as who and what we truly are. But we ought recall, in any event, that no doctor, politician, co-workers or HR reps, likely not even our earthly SOFFAs, nor even I decide your gender, nor you mine. Lord Willing, nor I mine. Nor you yours. It’s God-Ordained, and God-Created, just as i’d hope and pray, Lord Willing, many churchfolk would likely say.

    Transfolk need not be seen as any defiance of Divine Creative Order. Being trans need not be casting out or against the Genesis Given of “male and female He Created them”, but a way we have come to pass in and manifest that order, despite the “fallen nature” of the world we live in, with disease and disorder as we see. For me, well, Lord Willing, in a pretty binary way. For some, perhaps an expansion on the understanding of that fundamental notion of “the sixth day”.

    “And God Saw It Was Good”
    Genesis 1:31

    “How could that possibly be?”

    “Trust in The LORD your GOD, on your own understanding rely not…”
    Proverbs 3:5

    That “possible notion” again?

    “Jesus said to him, “‘If you can!’ Everything is possible to one who believes.””
    Mark 9:23

    I take a tip from John 9 I’ve been prone to use in Theological discussion on “transness”. The Passage begins with Jesus and His disciples on a journey, coming upon a man born blind. They ask who sinned, this man or his parents, that yielded to him being born this way? What if “trans” was plugged into that query, and Jesus’ Response similar to the one noted in The Gospel? He Knew and Knows about us, Lord Willing.

    “Neither he nor his parents sinned but rather so The Work of God might be shown in him.” cf. John 9:3

    And another tip, also from that Passage:
    [Some Pharisees] answered him, “You were born entirely in sins, and are you teaching us?” So they put him out.
    Jesus heard that they had put him out, and finding him, He said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” He answered, “Who Is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?” Jesus said to him, “You have both seen Him, and He Is The One Who Is Talking with you.” And he said, “Lord, I believe.” And he worshiped Him.
    John 9:34-38

    Jesus Is There Present sharing His Love and Testimony, that Of God, to a man who was questioned and cast out by the “religious authorities” of that region and time. Ever been called into question or even cast out by the religious authorities of the region and time in which you live? Tried to dialogue with them about His Work in your life in things seemingly as “unconventional” or “misunderstood” as transition, or of transition itself? Gotten the slew of questions and/or retorts? “You’re defying/rejecting God.”, “That’s a sin.”, “How could He Accept/Work that way?”, “What do you know?” “That’s not how it is.”, “You’re wrong.”, “He doesn’t work that way.” Do not be deceived, Lord Willing…

    “For My Thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My Ways,” Declares the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My Ways higher than your ways And My Thoughts than your thoughts.”
    Isaiah 55:9-10

    When some religious and government “authorities” literally had Jesus killed and attempted to have Him sealed away, perhaps because He didn’t “fit” with their notion of God, Law and Order, etc…
    He Took Away Sin! He Rose Again! HalleluJah! Amen!

    Lord Willing, He Loves you (as ought I/we He and all as well). He Heals you. He Saves you. He Is Right There to receive you. He Gave for you. He Advocates, for you, who you Truly are, who He Made you to be, to find and worship God/Lord, to love and serve Lord and neighbor.

    Love and service of Lord and neighbor. Similar to what Joshua told the Israelites of old coming into the land, we too must choose this day Whom we will serve, and how we will serve. As for me, as Joshua stated, Lord Willing, I will serve The Lord. After all, He’s The One Who Gave and Gives His all for me, as all ought for each other and for He, and, after all:

    “The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” 1John 4:8

    “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear…” 1John 4:18a

    Thanks team and thank God, keep taking up that cross daily, follow Him! It does, Lord Willing, get better folks. It is getting better. Lord Willing, bless God and God Bless. HalleluJah! Amen!

They ask who sinned, this man or his parents, that yielded to him being born this way? What if “trans” was plugged into that query, and Jesus’ Response similar to the one noted in The Gospel? He Knew and Knows about us, Lord Willing.

    “Neither he nor his parents sinned but rather so The Work of God might be shown in him.” cf. John 9:3

    And another tip, also from that Passage:
    [Some Pharisees] answered him, “You were born entirely in sins, and are you teaching us?” So they put him out.
    Jesus heard that they had put him out, and finding him, He said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” He answered, “Who Is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?” Jesus said to him, “You have both seen Him, and He Is The One Who Is Talking with you.” And he said, “Lord, I believe.” And he worshiped Him.
    John 9:34-38

    Jesus Is There Present sharing His Love and Testimony, that Of God, to a man who was questioned and cast out by the “religious authorities” of that region and time. Ever been called into question or even cast out by the religious authorities of the region and time in which you live? Tried to dialogue with them about His Work in your life in things seemingly as “unconventional” or “misunderstood” as transition, or of transition itself? Gotten the slew of questions and/or retorts? “You’re defying/rejecting God.”, “That’s a sin.”, “How could He Accept/Work that way?”, “What do you know?” “That’s not how it is.”, “You’re wrong.”, “He doesn’t work that way.” Do not be deceived, Lord Willing…

    “For My Thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My Ways,” Declares the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My Ways higher than your ways And My Thoughts than your thoughts.”
    Isaiah 55:9-10

    When some religious and government “authorities” literally had Jesus killed and attempted to have Him sealed away, perhaps because He didn’t “fit” with their notion of God, Law and Order, etc…
    He Took Away Sin! He Rose Again! HALLELUYHWH! Amen!

    Lord Willing, He Loves you (as ought I/we He and all as well). He Heals you. He Saves you. He Is Right There to receive you. He Gave for you. He Advocates, for you, who you Truly are, who He Made you to be, to find and worship God/Lord, to love and serve Lord and neighbor.

    Love and service of Lord and neighbor. Similar to what Joshua told the Israelites of old coming into the land, we too must choose this day Whom we will serve, and how we will serve. As for me, as Joshua stated, Lord Willing, I will serve The Lord. After all, He’s The One Who Gave and Gives His all for me, as all ought for each other and for He, and, after all:

    “The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” 1John 4:8

    “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear…” 1John 4:18a

    Thanks team and thank God, keep taking up that cross daily, follow Him! It does, Lord Willing, get better folks. It is getting better. Lord Willing, bless God and God Bless. HalleluYHWH! Amen!

    thanks and love/thank/praise/bless/glorify God/Lord,
    Best,
