California’s legislative assembly takes the lead (?) again! I’m not at all convinced what they’re doing qualifies as “leadership,” but they’re going full bore with their twisted agendas while hiding behind the smokescreen created by current events.
In case you missed it (it wouldn’t have been hard with all the fluff surrounding the so-called pandemic), it was with no debate or hesitation that the California Assembly voted overwhelmingly a few weeks ago to give minors and adults surgeries and cross-sex hormones (and funding said procedures with taxpayer dollars) that will permanently destroy their reproductive systems.
AB 2218 establishes, according to its author, Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D) Los Angeles, something called an “LGBT Transgender Wellness Fund” is designed to provide grants to hospitals, nonprofits, health care clinics, (like Planned Parenthood), and other medical providers that supply cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers for minors, as well as “sex change” operations and cross-sex hormones for adults.
The bill originally asked for $15 million to start the fund, but that amount was recently removed from the bill text. Now the exact amount added to the fund will be decided by the legislature at a later date.
According to Dr. Quentin Van Meter, a board-certified pediatric endocrinologist who testified against AB 2218 in the Assembly Health Committee, reported that studies show that children who are treated with cross-sex hormones for their gender confusion have “significant mental health issues,” that remain even after hormone therapy.
Van Meter warned legislators that the state would be sued in the coming years for funding transgender-affirming treatments for troubled and vulnerable children because they destroy healthy body tissue, sterilize the recipient, and cause irreversible damage.

The tactic of distract, divide, and conquer has been a devastatingly effective mantra for the far left. The depravity to which they will stoop seems to have no limits.
Their deceptions and the pork they slip into bills that have nothing to do with the original purpose of any proposed legislation has become so commonplace that it has taken the confrontation of men such as President Trump to expose the hypocrisy and underhanded subterfuge.
The issue of many sexes and alternative lifestyles is something that will not stand up under the scrutiny of Biblical standards.
There will be a day when each of us stands before God and answers for the things we did in this lifetime, and if these ungodly people don’t see and accept the light of salvation via the blood of Jesus in time, I have no doubt they will regret not having admitted to their sins and accepted his cleansing.
