California calls itself a diverse and tolerant state but they might need to rethink that because the state legislature is considering banning certain kinds of books. You heard that correctly, a bill that would ban the sale of books that express a Christian belief about sexual morality is moving through the legislature. Assembly Bill 2943 would make it an “unlawful business practice” to engage in a transaction…"that advertises or engages in “sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.” Sexual ethics is one of the hottest and most controversial topics of our time, but is banning a book and prohibiting certain views going to make the controversy go away? True tolerance is a good thing, but what California is considering is intolerant. The end result is uniformity of thought on one of today's most controversial issues.
