George Will in a recent column exposed the ongoing crackdown by the city government of Oakland, California to eliminate words like ‘Marriage’, and ‘Family Values’, and ‘Natural Family’ from emails and group fliers. The terms are considered ‘hate’ language by the city across the bay from San Francisco.
Gay groups are free to publicize their meetings and events on city bulletin boards and through emails, but Christian groups publicizing Biblical marriage and family values study groups are not allowed to do likewise.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in the city’s favor when the regulations were challenged by an African-American Christian organization. The ruling is being appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. The 9th Circuit is the most liberal and also the most overturned court in the USA.
