What happened to this prophetic utterance? Assembly Bill 2943 now reads:
- A religious ministry could not hold a conference on maintaining sexual purity if the conference encourages attendees to avoid homosexual behavior.
- A bookstore (even online bookstores) could not sell many recently published books challenging gender identity ideology and advocating that these beliefs should be rejected by society.
- A pastor paid to speak at an event addressing current social topics could not encourage attendees that they can prevail over same-sex desires or feelings that they were born the wrong sex.
Perry Stone Ministries (October 25, 2015)
MAJOR ALERT: I have just been informed of a major plan by the extreme left, that has the support over 100 House members and numerous Senators, that if passed would make it a crime for churches and ministers to publically say the gay lifestyle is a sin, or not allow them to use your church for their own meetings. It would become a crime and the Justice Department would investigate the allegations of “discrimination”, and if the church or minister is “guilty” leveling fines, or if need be incarcerating the leaders. The majority of the politicians among these church haters that are intolerant to traditional religious beliefs happen to be with linked with the “donkey party,” and most have no liking for conservative Christians and will use the law to “Silence the religious right,” as they call it. We will soon find out within the “church” who is on the Lord’s side of the Scriptures and who is “halting between two opinions.” It is the days of Elijah all over again, where the Spirit of Jezebel is after the heads (voices) of the men of God. There is serious government persecution coming to all who stand for truth, and when the “left” becomes violent, as did the men of Sodom against Lot, threatening to rape him for his rebuke of their iniquity, God will change the game and the United States hedge will be removed and catastrophic natural disasters will be unleased. Please mark this day, this post and repost to as many as possible. We must pray for God’s Word to always prevail. Also, a UK report from scientists stated that in the future the earth in in danger of a catastrophic meteor shower! Hummm – I recall Jesus predicting the “stars falling from heaven and the powers of heaven being shaken.” Sounds like the last days! – more to come on periscope

B we have seen this coming for years. This is actually no surprise. Although it is sad it is inevitable due to the increasing propaganda of sexual immorality across the globe.

More sensationalistic drivel and fearmongering – nothing new – reason we have the 1st amendment in the first place

Police arrested Kentucky Chaplain David Wells for telling inmates homosexuality was a sin, according to Fox News.
A city ordinance in Idaho demanded pastors perform same-sex ceremonies or go to jail.
Former Atlanta fire chief Kelvin Cochran lost his job for calling homosexuality an “impure” lifestyle. Furthermore, Democrats actively seek to expand the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with the Equality Act to include LGBT people.
Ed Brewer [10/27/2015 9:25 PM]
Obviously there are those who will try to violate the 1st amendment, but the process is there — in order… David Wells had his VOLUNTEER counseling status revoked, but he wasn’t arrested and the case is pending…..the Idaho city ordinance deals with a public, for-profit wedding chapel that openly advertised for Christian AND ‘other’ services, and the sanction threatened was a misdemeanor….. Chief Kelvin Cochran is fighting his firing, but the crux of the matter is his violation of an ethics clause that he signed as a condition of employment – this one will play out in the courts, but the system is working and his difficulty is raising a counterbalance to the subterfuge of incremental acceptance – a good thing. Bottom line for me…. there’s a profound difference between panic and the prophetic, and it’s past time we engage our intellect and prayerfully reject such manipulative pandering.

Ya know, to be exCOG you sure care what COG people think, don’t you?
I could care-a-less what Paul Conn, Mark Williams or any other of those guys sit in Cleveland think about what Perry says. We all know CoG ia reactive rather than proactive.

I think ultimately Lee University will go the way of Harvard, Yale and many other colleges and universities. It will break from the stronghold of its denomination and stand on its own.

Charles Page [10/28/2015 7:45 PM]
no, I read the statement thoroughly. Maybe you are blindly following and are subjective in your statement.
Charles Page [10/28/2015 7:46 PM]
Stone is making a stand against gays and Conn is making a stand against those who stand against gays.
Alan N Carla Smith [10/28/2015 8:48 PM]
Whatever CP. Hate on Perry all you want, shower your love on Conn and the Cleveland Posse and maybe they will give you a kickback. Just hope they don’t turn you in to the feds… cry emoticon
Alan N Carla Smith [10/28/2015 9:23 PM]
Pandering? Such as politics?
Charles Page [10/28/2015 10:48 PM]
I have been turned into a new born child of God by the Holy Ghost, what can the CoG turn me into?
Alan N Carla Smith [10/28/2015 11:48 PM]
Nice.. go with it. Newly born child of God by the Holy Ghost.
Just start your own/new thread.
