'Bullying Bill' is unfunded

House Members Joe Radinovich and John Ward voted for the unfunded “Bullying Bill” mandate. When you see your property taxes go up, remember, the unfunded mandate had to be paid by somebody. Maybe they will give us a bailout on our property taxes to help pay for their votes.

This bill does not protect all children equally. call Joe at 888-682-6154 and John at 800-683-4205 to ask them why they voted for this.

Next on the Democratic agenda is the “Ban on Conversion Therapy,” which, in short, takes away the parents’ right to counsel their child in any way, shape or form away from homosexuality. It will be punishable by removal of your child from your home and jail time.

My Bible says to “train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart.” This will be jail time if you train your child homosexuality is sin. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 are my favorite verses. This is bordering on “hate speech” to teach your child these verses.

The homosexual agenda is not stopping until you have your freedom of religion and speech taken away.
