其他消息

 
依照2013年加州通過的AB1266法案,公立學校學生有權參加任何學校活動或進入任何場所, 可不需依照學校資料上註明的性別,這包括運動員競技,或男女廁所。

Calvary Chapel的牧師Jack Hibbs發起陳情書,要求在2016年11月投票允許:公共場所的廁所,衛浴地方還是分男女,並且確保任何私人對外開放的廁所或類似設備也可以分男女, 且不會被遭起訴。
 
 
可以用黑白影印。全部要填寫並簽名。 在Declaration of Circulator 處請填上自己的資料。

本陳情書必須在12/18本週五晚上5點前送達

11月22日即將來到,這是最後的限期去提交簽名,爭取把「維護個人私隱法」的倡議放上2016年的選票。現在華裔社區要再次站起來,以簽名發聲。近年,華裔的聲音已成為最強的勇士,對抗這「是非顛倒」的文化。 


調查結果令人震驚


根據以往反對男女共廁法(亦即是 AB1266,一個容許個人依自己的性認同選擇使用廁所的法案)的運動,中國人是正確價值觀的最大支持者之一。作為社區中一個新興的力量,難免引起注意。在過去的活動中,當政府聲稱由於有很多無效簽名,以致公投不合資格的時候,兩位太平洋法律協會的律師立刻前去調查,而調查結果令人震驚。


他們發現了很多被拒簽名都有一個共通點,那就是他們都是亞洲人的名字。到底這些簽名是合法地被拒還是被選擇性地排除,我們還未獲機會調查,但我們已向法院爭取重新審查這些簽名的權利。我們有信心可以挽回大量簽名,因為我們曾經發現極多簽名是錯誤地被撤除的。

 
新的方案可以抗衡


現時,我們有一個新的方案去抗衡這個男女共廁法,那就是「維護個人私隱法」的倡議。該倡議將會推翻 AB1266 所帶來的弊病,並且延展個人隱私權不單止到公立學校,並且到所有政府樓宇。這倡議也將會捍衛企業,使他們不需要因為拒絕男性進入女廁,或女性進入男廁而被起訴。有了這個倡議,我們更有信心及同心去力爭我們在選票上的聲音。 


為了保護每個珍貴的聲音,我們必須留意我們需要採取的每個步驟,令我們的敵人沒有藉口去拒絕任何一個簽名。 


留意需要採取步驟


·   登記投票,就算你是美國公民,你也不是自動擁有投票權的。每位公民投票都需要首先登記成為登記選民。
·   你簽署請願書的時候,請確認請願書是屬於你住宅的縣。
·   請不要讓他人填寫或簽署你的請願書。每人都需要親自填寫姓名、地址及親筆簽署。即使是你的伴侶,也不可為你填寫任何資料。
·   只可以簽署請願表格一次,超過一次的簽名,不但會導致簽名被拒絕,重複簽名還會令到該縣一定百分比的有效簽名被拒。 


就是這麼簡單。這是一個新的機會,讓我們再次體現我們的力量和團結—不止是中國人,這是所有持守正確,健康和以神為中心的價值觀的人都應該做的事。

Gay Marriage: Three things your church must do immediately to protect itself 

Without question, the Supreme Court’s decision to impose homosexual marriage as a constitutional right is disappointing. There was a time when the Court rightly bestowed a great respect for America’s Christian heritage and to the Creator on which the Declaration of Independence was based. Sadly, those time are passed.

As Christians, we know God, in His great wisdom, established the institution of marriage as only between one man and one woman. Not even the Supreme Court can change that.

  1. Because of judicial activism, Christian ministries can and should take steps to protect their religious freedoms. No longer can even churches believe they are immune to the compulsive and aggressive nature of the homosexual agenda.

AFA strongly urges your church and other Christian ministries to consider three recommendations immediately:

  • Adopt a clear statement of faith regarding human sexuality and marriage.
  • Clarify that weddings in your church are Christian worship services.
  • Adopt a policy that clearly restricts the use of ministry facilities to the ministry’s religious purposes.

AFA makes several resources available to aid your church pastor, leadership and ministry in protecting itself against the coming storm of homosexual activism.

  1. American Family Studios has produced a short documentary that provides legal analysis of the dangers posed to religious liberty by the ruling. Watch it here.
  2. Read and print this article written by AFA General Counsel Pat Vaughn. It will help your church understand the dangers of doing nothing. Will a gay marriage storm crush your church?
  3. Alliance Defending Freedom has produced a handbook that will walk your church through every step of adopting strong marriage policies, including sample resolutions and statements. A Legal Guide for Churches, Christian Schools, and Christian Ministries

As Christians, we can and must guard our religious freedoms while showing Christ’s mercy to people in bondage to homosexuality. Avoiding problems in the future depends on what we do today.

Please use the resources provided to insure your church or ministry is ready for the certain dangers ahead. May God bless our efforts, as we stand on His word.



Tim Wildmon, President
American Family Association

 
 
 

緊急祈禱需求!.... 

YOUR PRAYERS ARE THE NEED OF THE HOUR.
 
PLEASE SEND THIS TO AS MANY AS YOU CAN.
 
PLEASE LOOK AT THESE PICTURES.  ISIS IS KILLING CHRISTIAN CHILDREN.  ONE WAS CRUCIFIED.   PLEASE PRAY.
Be sure to see the 4 photos below.
The whole world needs to see what kind of people these ISIS terrorists are.  Your prayers are needed now.

Here is an urgent prayer request for all of us!!

Dear Friend: Just a few minutes ago, I received the following text message on my phone, from Sean Malone who leads Crisis Relief International (CRI), We spoke briefly on the phone, and I assured him that we would share this urgent prayer need with all our contacts.


We lost the city of Queragosh. It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling food to. ISIS has pushed back Kurdish Forces, and is within 10 minutes of where our CRI team is working. Thousands more fled into the city of Erbil last night. The UN evacuated its staff in Erbil. Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!!!.

Please pray sincerely for the deliverance of people of northern Iraq from the terrible advancement of ISIS and its extreme Islamic goals for mass conversion or death for Christians in this area.


May I plead with you not to ignore this email? Do not forward it before you have prayed through it. Then send it to as many people as possible.


Send it to friends and Christians you know. Send it to your prayer group. Send it to your pastors. Any one you can think of. We need to stand in the gap for our fellow Christians.


Noreen Nelson
