According to the California Family Council, Assemblyman Evan Low and three dozen other lawmakers are working to push ACR 99 through the legislature, which aims to tell religious leaders what they can and cannot preach from their pulpits about LGBT individuals — even if it goes against their faith.

The resolution denounces religious figures in the state who promote the idea that same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria is “unethical,” “harmful” or leads to high rates of suicide, according to CBN News.

“This measure would call upon all Californians to embrace the individual and social benefits of family and community acceptance, upon religious leaders to counsel on LGBTQ matters from a place of love, compassion, and knowledge of the psychological and other harms of conversion therapy,” the resolution says.

Pastors Ken Williams and Elizabeth Woning, two individuals who used to be gay, plan to speak out against the “discriminatory” resolution.
